The Zurich-based body expressed concern in a statement released on Thursday about the illegitimate ticket sales for the June 12-July 13 event, as per the report.

"Over the last few weeks, we have unfortunately seen more and more people leaving our ticket centers disappointed as they failed to collect their tickets purchased through unofficial websites," FIFA said.

According to FIFA ‘companies, websites and individuals’ are ‘offering tickets to unsuspecting fans through unauthorized resells at exorbitant prices’.

Online events ticket vendor Stubhub has quoted resold tickets for the Brazil-Croatia tournament opener June 12 at $2,300.
