SAO PAULO, Brazil - FIFA will open a new round of ticket sales for the World Cup online on a first-come, first-serve basis today.

About 345,000 tickets will be available for all matches except four — the opener, the two semi-finals and the final.

Tickets will go on sale through FIFA's website. This round will remain open until April 1, but FIFA said "tickets are expected to sell out fast".

Of the 3.3 million tickets available for the first World Cup in Brazil since 1950, about 2.3 million have already been allocated, mostly to Brazilian fans. FIFA said about 1.5 million tickets went to the general public, with the rest accounting for hospitality programs, commercial affiliates and other groups.

The last-minute sales phase is expected to start on April 15, also on a first-come, first-serve basis. A random draw for high-demand matches took place in the previous rounds for the 64 matches. The number of available tickets for today's round was higher than the 160,000 originally announced because of the tickets returned by sponsors and the hospitality program.
