Fans have snapped up the final 2,000 tickets for Saturday's World Cup final in Paris in just 20 minutes after they were put on sale on Wednesday morning.

The final allocation of tickets for the Stade de France game between England and South Africa were those returned by teams knocked out of the tournament.

Tens of thousands of England fans are expected to be in Paris for the match.

The Rugby Football Union has warned those without tickets of the dangers of buying from unofficial sources.

"This is a massive game and one that, of course, thousands of England fans will want to be there to witness," said RFU business operations director Paul Vaughan.

"Unfortunately this phenomenal demand for tickets means that there will be unscrupulous people trying to profiteer from what should be a fantastic occasion."

606: DEBATE

Fans making the journey to Paris for the game could be in for a difficult journey.

On Thursday, the entire Paris metropolitan transport network, including the Metro system, will be out of action because of a strike which is still expected to cause disruption on Friday.

The French national TGV network is also likely to be affected, and Eurostar have had to cancel services on both days.

Flights may also be affected, but the Eurolines coach company says it is laying on 18 extra London to Paris coaches between Thursday and Saturday.
