Am so very upset as have just found out that the ticket application I applied for on behalf of my almost 18 year old son and his 3 friends will probably be automatically cancelled as I paid on my credit card. Have sent several emails to FIFA but just receive automated replies every time. Apparently a 3rd party cannot pay for the tickets and in the event that the application is successful, it will probably be automatically rejected because of the 3rd party payment. Although on one of the other automated emails, it says that we will have to pay an extra 30%, so not really sure what's going on. The bank will obviously not give my son a credit card as he is not 18 yet. Am hoping that a debit card is acceptable so that we can use that next time around.
Any suggestions out there ??
