How to get your U.S. tickets

[WORLD CUP 2010 COUNTDOWN] Fans wishing to follow the USA at the 2010 World Cup have several ways to apply for tickets. FIFA has extended the second phase of sales of team-specific tickets to Friday and U.S. Soccer announced on Tuesday initial details for U.S. national team fans wishing to apply for tickets through the U.S. Soccer Supporters Club.

-- With the exception of Brazil and England, team-specific tickets are still available at fifa.com for all of the other teams that have qualified.

Depending on which of the five types of team-specific tickets series fans apply for, they may include 3-7 matches, including the final. These tickets are allocated to the team's venues automatically, meaning fans can buy a ticket to follow their team throughout the tournament without having to wait to see where it will play.

-- Registration for U.S. Soccer SC is open now at ussoccer.com, and fans seeking priority status must join by Dec. 3 at 12 p.m. ET.  

Beginning later this month, all registered U.S. Soccer SC members will be sent a request to submit pre-application data to U.S. Soccer.

Once these fans have submitted their personal data to U.S. Soccer -- including a valid passport -- they will be provided instructions and a link to FIFA's online ticket application process.

The FIFA online form will be available for fans to complete from Dec. 6, 2009, until Jan. 13, 2010. Requests for tickets will be handled on an equal-chance basis rather than first-come, first-served.

After Jan. 13, FIFA will determine which requests have been successful and will fulfill such orders directly.

If the U.S. demand for tickets exceeds the ticket allocation available for any price category for any game, then the FIFA World Cup Ticketing Center will conduct a random lottery.

The payment of ticket applications will only be processed if tickets are issued.
