Off topic slightly, but does anyone know the easiest (and cheapest) way to get tickets for england v croatia (preferably in the croatia end) without being a member of anything. Also, when are they due to come on sale?
Thank you for your response, but unfortunately, I find it unacceptable.
For months FIFA has held my money, and earned interest on it while I've forgone the opportunity to use my money. All for tickets that would ultimately never materialize.
Going to the World Cup meant so much to me that I was willing to allow this practice, which I view as corporatism at it's worst.
Now, my team has not qualified, and on top of being devastated for missing the World Cup, I'm being kept in the dark about the where-a-bouts of my money.
I appreciate that your staff is tremendously busy. However, I believe I'm entitled to receive at least an estimate of when my credit card will be refunded the portion of the ticket price that is refundable.
The refund process is automatic for anyone who had tickets to follow a Team that have failed to qualify for the 2010 FIFA World Cup South Africa™.
Unfortunately as this is an automatic process we are unable to advise the exact date the refund will reach your account.
Due to the vast amount of customers that need to be refunded following the final qualifiers we appreciate your patience whilst these are being processed.
Please let us know if you require any additional information.

I had previously been succesful via lottery for 2 Team Specific Tickets for Croatia.
These tickets were paid for in full.
Croatia did not qualify, and now the qualifying stages are completed.
When will FIFA be refunding the purchase price of these tickets?
