Aussie World Cup Fever

Over 50,000 Aussies applied for South African World Cup tickets, and 27,000 were lucky enough to get one.

And this was before we qualified, making us the fifth biggest nation of ticket applicants; a list that included England, USA and Canada!

Organisers are expecting a further surge from Australian fans now that we've confirmed qualification.

And of course it shows the interest to FIFA of Australian's, and can't harm our World Cup bid can it!

And we've sent yer man Kevin Rudd off to FIFA this week in Switzerland to do a bit of work for football.

Nice one PM.
