According to a report by French news agency, AFP, Makgabo said as many tickets as possible will be made available to South Africans wanting to see the event in their home country.

“We must make sure the tickets go to the right people.”
It is still unclear when ticket sales for the June 11-July 11 event in 2010 will go on sale.
“It should start in the second half of 2009,” said Makgabo.
There are expected to be just under three-million tickets available across the event's 10 stadiums.
