Colin Moss: I was There - In The Queue

"I would love to say I was there" said Colin Moss after spending five hours in a queue at FNB Seapoint, in an attempt to buy tickets for the world cup.

"But all I can say is I was in the queue, along with a few hundred disappointed fans."

After four hours, only two people had managed to buy tickets and it was obvious that whatever system FIFA had supposedly put in place was not working. After five hours FNB staff handed out numbers to the people in the queue and asked them to return later but when people returned they were met by total chaos.

While partner Tamarin manned the production office of Way of the Warrior, Colin and Tam's mum Annalynne Kaplan rushed to buy tickets. They weren't going to be fussy - any game would do, as long as they could experience the spectacle.

But, at FNB Seapoint anyway, it was not to be and there are hundreds of disappointed Capetonians today who were there . in the queue.

Undefeated Colin was determined to try FIFA's next suggestion and went online at 18h00 sharp but the site wasn't working. He got through to the site at 08h00 next morning, 16th April, but there were apparently no tickets available for Cape Town matches. This was hard to believe, so he phoned the FIFA office, where a spokesperson finally informed him that FIFA have actually not released any tickets for Cape Town yet!

"Do you mean to tell me that we stood in queues in Cape Town all day yesterday (15th April) and there were actually no tickets for sale in Cape Town?" he asked.

"That's right" said the FIFA person. "We have not released any tickets for sale in Cape Town."

"We have tried from the outset, online applications, both lotteries and have had no luck" said Colin. "If I am representative of the average South African, I would say we really are getting the short end of the stick."

Last seen, Colin was pricing big screen TVs
