Alleged racist chanting during Russia v France to be investigated by Fifa

World Cup 2018 rip-off: football fans are being charged up to £5600 for tickets that don't even guarantee entry to games

"Africa hosted the best Fifa World Cup ever and with good support, Morocco can emulate South Africa", the Safa President added.

Football's governing body Fifa has warned it can void any ticket purchased on an unauthorised ticketing website.

Jordaan said Morocco's bid was Africa's bid, assuring Morocco that he will personally lobby for the Council of Southern Africa Football Associations (COSAFA) and the rest of the continent to rally behind the Moroccan bid.

Which? urges fans to only buy tickets from authorised sellers.

The joint bid committee had last month pitched $2 billion ticket sales projection alongside the announcement of 23 potential host cities.

Eller has said FIFA had received a six-digit number of ticket applications for the 2018 FIFA World Cup Final.

The North American bid now has 17 of the 104 votes needed to win the hosting rights to the national team tournament, which will be determined at a vote of the Fifa Congress on 13th June in Moscow. The second case is due to be heard by UEFA on May 31, two weeks before the World Cup begins. This means that StubHub will make sure tickets are delivered on-time and are valid, or they will find comparable or better replacement tickets, or at the very least offer a full refund'.

However, it admitted: Unfortunately, World Cup tickets were, due to a technical error, viewable from (but not purchasable on) our United Kingdom site for a limited period but this was promptly fixed.

However, Ticombo said it was not breaking the law by trading tickets and neither were fans.

A spokesman for Ticombo, one of the sites selling the tickets, said it was not violating any legislation: If FIFA has a problem with fans wishing to sell their ticket to a third party, it has a problem not with Ticombo, but with the free market itself. Thus we do not acknowledge the legitimacy of the accusations put forward'.
