After my last rant about the FA only allowing the sale of tickets to the England-Brazil game to paid-up members, today they started the sale to the general public. Preceeding this sale, there was a ballot to members of the England fan club, which we entered. Unlike our last attempt at a football ballot, we were actually successful.
Heather and I had a quick discussion about how much to spend and came to the agreement that we should go for the best available. By the time I had got to the front of the queue on the ticketing website, the £60 ones were all taken and the most expensive available were £50. Two tickets were duly bought and we got our allocated seats.
1 June, 8pm kick off - we will be there!
