Soccer World Cup Qualifier Tickets Online in Tunisia

Next month, October 8th, will witness one of the hottest soccer games of the year which is the match between Tunisia and Morocco, where both teams will be fighting for the qualification to the World Cup 2006.

Tunisia needs one point to qualify, so a draw is fine. Morocco on the other hand need to win to qualify.

Tickets still aren’t on sale for now at the regular outlets, but 10000 tickets were released for sale online on the site of the Tunisian Football Federation, using the Tunisian Post’s e-Dinar solution, and they all dissapeared in a few hours.
The pressure was so big that the web server was brought down to it’s knees and the site crashed.

I think these soccer match tickets must be the most successful e-commerce effort in Tunisia to this day, as other e-commerce sites haven’t been successful at all.

Maybe sports can make people trust buying online more and fuel a growth in e-commerce in Tunisia. I certainly hope so.
