FIFA is facing trouble with World Cup South Africa? No! Really?

The Trouble keeps coming for FIFA. As previously predicted....

"Everyone knows that FIFA wanted France in the World Cup. The cost benefit analysis of the situation is very clear.

More people follow France. More people will attend an unheralded venue for a World Cup if France qualifies, especially in a Wintery South Africa that maybe facing Ukraine like mutated Flu Quarantines and Bank and Warfare modeled inflation/deflation monetary supply collapse repercussions.

More people will spend money to fill FIFA coffers and have some money trickle down to keep the eternal flame of football lit while the ideals of sportsmanship are desecrated.

If South Africa 2010 is a success, there is less embarrassment for FIFA's executives. They already have the obscene wealth and the haughty positions secured.

The one thing that they do not need is an embarrassment and that is why they get an embarrassing situation handed to them on a silver "Blatter" as a preview before the main course is duly served.

Oh, What will World Cup 2010 be like? Imagination is more important than Knowledge in a Quantum Mechanical kind of way :-)"

Now the lack of proper planning for a South Africa World Cup in the midst of the continuing actual global depression has some start stats to reveal that not government propaganda office can work around:

"650,000 tickets remain unsold"
"South Africa 2010 may be about to make more history. But not in a fashion that will please FIFA which has been forced to admit that, with just 11 weeks to go before the big kick-off on June 11, this is the first modern World Cup that has not completely sold out.

Of the 2.95 million tickets on offer, 650,000 still remain unspoken for, with 330,000 unsold among the 570,000 allocated to competing nations - worrying at 58%. Germany 2006, in contrast, received 15 million applications for just 3.4 million seats.

According to the Daily Mirror, England, expected to be among the best supported teams at the finals, have sent back 1,000 of the 29,000 allocated to the Football Association, who needed a three-month extension to sell that many. The heavy costs of flights and accomodation, security fears and the logistical problems of getting around a vast country with a limited infrastructure with competing teams not based in individual cities have been used as reasons for the mass stay-away.

FIFA, mounting a big push of sales until hosts South Africa play Mexico on the opening day, has released a statement: "Ticketing centres in host cities will now be open for sales until July 11, the day of the final, plus the call centre. There will be also mobile sales units."

That just about sums up the Global economic disaster that we are currently in.

It is apparent that bailed out bonus baby Banksters are not interested in watching the World Cup unless they can put together a loan package to "bail" out South Africa and hide the debt that they will incur in some obscure CDS spread.

Maybe the Government Propaganda ministers can work together with the Banksters in helping FIFA do a last minute REPO 105 deal on the tickets to pretend that they are sold out and using digital enhanced TV, we can add some digital fans and bribe or Gestapo a media blackout of the reality of the mess that is on FIFA's hands.

The Doctrine of FIFA's Unclean Hands is now a conspiracy Thierry.

How about the more obvious fact that not many white soccer fans want to travel to crime-ridden S.Africa and hope to be mugged before, during or after a game. No locals can afford the ticket prices and the travel to SA is not cheap. I'm sure FIFA wanted to be "inclusive", but they would've been better off scheduling the Cup in post-crash Dubai rather than a total 3rd world shithole.
