The first round of ticket sales opened in February 2009
A global rush for tickets to the 2010 Fifa World Cup finals has begun, a day after the group-phase draw was made in host country South Africa.
More than a million new tickets are up for sale, now the 32 teams know who, where and when they will be playing.
Fans must apply by 22 January, via the Fifa website and national associations.
One of the most popular games is likely to be the 12 June clash between the US and England - the foreign nations that bought most tickets in previous rounds.
Tickets to oversubscribed matches are allocated by lottery.
Fifa told the BBC that 54,000 applications for newly-released tickets had been made via its website in the first three hours of the sales phase beginning.
"They are extremely encouraging figures," said Fifa spokeswoman Delia Fisher, "but it's important to remember they are not allocated on a first come, first served basis."
The 32 participating countries' football associations are also allocated 12% of tickets in the stadia where their group matches will be played.
South Africans can apply by post locally.
The first phase of purchasing opened in February. Since then, Fifa says 674,403 tickets have been sold - 90% of those made available to date.
More than half of those have been bought by South African residents. US citizens have bought 84,103 tickets, while people from the UK have purchased 48,388.
South African fans pay 140 rand ($19; £11.50) for the cheapest seats at group matches. International prices start at $80 (£48.50).
