JAKARTA, NNC – What a shock! The United States (US) has become the country with most ticket sales for the 2018 FIFA World Cup despite the team's absence to move on to the qualifying round.

The US is only second to Russia as the country with most ticket sales or more than a third of the total 871,797 tickets sold.

Brazil is third with 71,512 tickets, followed by Columbia and Germany with 65,234 and 62,541 tickets, respectively. Mexico in sixth with 60,302 tickets.

Like the US, China failed to qualify for the 2018 FIFA World Cup but made the top 10 list in ticket sales with approximately 40,000 tickets.

FIFA has allocated an additional 120,000 tickets which will be available until the 2018 World Cup finals on July 15. Ticket sales are divided into four categories, says FIFA.
