    Exact same thing has happened to me as I said yesterday. I provided the passport but my item hasn't cleared custom 4 days after the fact. I called DHL and they said it'll get to me in North America within 48 hours of clearing customs. We still have plenty of time.

    From the WTF FIFA department.

    I am trying to list one of my unwanted games (M51) on StubHub in order to hopefully get enough for them to buy M41 there (so essentially an even trade, with an intermediary). As part of the verification process StubHub requested a copy of the FIFA confirmation e-mail and we just discovered that back in November when I bought 4 x 4 tickets FIFA's e-mail listed only 3 of the games (and naturally, the one I want to sell is not listed).

    It is totally insane. The e-mail lists only 12 of my 16 tickets and then the correct total order price. I am trying to persuade StubHub this was just some idiotic FIFA glitch. (The 12 shown tickets combined cost $1,580 and the order total shown is $2,320.)

    To be clear, yesterday I physically received all 16 tickets, and my FIFA account page shows them all, so I am not worried about the tickets themselves. But for some reason the e-mail was truncated.

    Hopefully StubHub will be sensible about it...

    True. Immigration officers said around 60.000 where in Rio that weekend. Only 15.000 in the stadium.
    Probably one of my sadest days in football. I've never watched the match again. Ever. Can't stand it.

    back to ticketscanners... If you have a ticket scanner or app and want to keep it active at all times for android you need to turn off optimizer for it. So as long as it is in your used apps, it will stay open and you will constantly get alerts.

    Go to apps and notifications>click app>battery>manage battery usage>all apps

    then press and hold it to "not optimized"

    just read up on the deadline for reselling in the terms and conditions because there is a deadline to resell tickets based on the date of the game. Think it’s 3 days or something, not 100% sure.

    Leaving home in a week, but no word from DHL yet. A family member should be able to pick them up if they arrive shortly after I depart. I presume something like a notarized letter is needed for them pick the tickets up at the DHL hold-at location, similar to those required for a third-person pick-up at the ticketing center?
    Anybody had their relatives pick the tickets up at a DHL office?

    There are instructions in DHL on Demand site. When you receive the email about delivery of the tickets, there will be a link to track the package and to change the delivery way and instructions of documents your relative will need to pick up your tickets.

    You'd also stand a very good chance of getting very good seats. For Por-Mor, I carted a ticket 4 rows from the field and it was Cat 2 (albeit more towards the corner).

    The best seats appear to be sponsor/hospitality tickets and then after that it's basically imaginary classifications based on FIFA's whims and caprices. Exaggerating, but still...

    Yeah, but I gotta know the list of documents before I (hopefully) get that e-mail, cause I may need to prepare them before I leave.

    Sad story!

    My strategy in Brazil, and now in Russia, was to buy flights to all the cities were my teams (i have brazilian-colombian dual citizenship) could play in the second round, the week-end right after the World Cup draw (December). I purchased tickets at $100-150 dollars each. If my team ended up playing that game or the game ended up being cool, (e.g. i watched Costa Rica - Netherlands, i could end up watching Belgium-Poland in Rostov,) i would use the plane tickets. If my team didn't play and the game was shitty (no offense, e.g. Greece - Costa Rica in Recife R16), i would just not use the plane tickets and try to sell the game tickets.

    It is much better to loose a couple of $150 dollar plane tickets, than to loose watching my team's R16/QTF because the plane tickets sky rocketed to $1000, or there aren't any available. I remember tons of tickets were lost for Brazil - Colombia in Fortaleza because there were simply no flights available. One of my buddies took a plane to Recife and then drove 10 hours with his 75 yr old father to that game! Another friend thought about renting a private plane, but demand was so high that it was easily $20.000 (!), and he ended up loosing the tickets.

    Further to the above, in the US the instructions re: docs will be as follows:


    If someone will collect on your behalf, then that person must bring the following two forms of identification:
    1. A letter from you, the Receiver of the parcel, authorizing the person to collect on your behalf and containing the following information:
      1. the name of the person collecting;
      2. the DHL Waybill No. for the shipment;
      3. your full address;
      4. your signature;
      5. the date the DHL Courier left a delivery notice, if applicable.
    2. A government issued photo ID; for example, a driving license or passport.

    "WC Tickets Notifier" for me, in terms of speed of notification. The recent drops have all occurred within a certain time frame, so I open up the page close to the time and wait and as soon as I receive the notification, I start carting. It's worked thus far but there might be better methods.
