Default Another World Cup ticket thread

Meaning that it might be possible to pick up some tickets and watch w/o the hassle. True? Or untrue?

Are the tickets going to be tied to the purchaser's ID?

Default Another World Cup ticket thread

I actually read that under German law ticket-ID checks are illegal. They can search your possessions for weapons, they can compare your name to a Do-not-Admit hooligan list, but they can't bar your entry just because your name doesn't match the ticket. This was in the news a couple weeks ack but I can't find a link.

Default Another World Cup ticket thread

Saw something where a guy won an ebay type of action and suit the organizing comitee when he was told he couldn't enter because the name didn't match. After the court decission went the guy's way, the organizing comitee printed him new tickets but said it would be a one time thing. With this precedent set, there's no way they can enforce the name thing.
