Subject: 2006 FIFA World Cup Tickets

We appreciate your continued patience and support as we grow nearer to the 2006 FIFA World Cup! We are excited to announce that FIFA has honored our requests and will be awarding U.S. Soccer with an additional allotment of 2006 FIFA World Cup tickets for all of the First Round Matches.

Allocation of these tickets to applications on our Priority Waiting List will take place over the next few weeks. FIFA has confirmed that this will be the final allotment of tickets made available to U.S. Soccer. Once this final allotment has been sold in its entirety, we will notify via e-mail applications that will not be allocated tickets.

To process the remaining tickets as quickly as possible, we kindly ask that those on our Priority Waiting List refrain from contacting U.S. Soccer regarding the status of specific applications. We understand the need to make travel arrangements as soon as possible and are working with this in mind.

We have posted a list of Frequently Asked Questions on our website at, which provides additional information pertaining to updating and transferring ticket holder information, as well as the ticket delivery process. If you have an urgent matter regarding your 2006 FIFA World Cup Ticket Order, please e-mail our Ticketing Department at

We thank you in advance for your cooperation and look forward to a magnificent U.S. fan presence at the 2006 FIFA World Cup!
