MOST COMMENTED

[WORLD CUP 2014] Fans wishing to purchase tickets for the World Cup still have a chance as tickets for 60 out of the 64 matches -- all but the opening game and final and two semifinals -- will be up for sale to the general public at 7 a.m. ET on a first-come, first-served basis.

Fans will be able to purchase the tickets online and see the respective availability (low-medium-high) per match in the respective chart on www.FIFA.com/tickets that will be updated constantly once sales start.

Around 345,000 tickets will be available for sale, according to FIFA. The number is higher than the 160,000 originally announced due to tickets returned by sponsors and the hospitality program as well as unpaid tickets from the previous sales phase.

Returned tickets includes those for two second-round matches and for two group matches in Manaus -- England-Italy and USA-Portugal -- that FIFA previously said wouldn't available because of high demand.

UPDATE: Within the first five hours of the second period of the second sales phase opening, 203,330 sold. The five countries with the most ticket requests were Brazil (143,085), USA (16,059),  Australia (5,357), Colombia (4,574), and Argentina (3,800). This sales period is scheduled to last until April 1.
