Football (soccer) World Cup 2006 fans have until 9.00pm GMT on July 2nd to place the lowest unique bid that will win them two full package VIP tickets to the football World Cup Final to be held in Berlin, Germany on July 9th.
This reverse auction, where the lowest bid that no one else has bid wins, puts tickets valued individually at well over £1000 ($1750) within easy reach as each bid costs just £1.50 ($2.50) or even less because the more bids purchased the more free bids gained.
This superb VIP package includes return flights to Berlin from Stansted UK, all airport and game luxury transfers, 2 nights 4 star accommodation, a champagne reception, a complementary bar, a four course meal with fine wines and a post match buffet, a celebrity guest speaker, VIP hostess service and a souvenir World Cup Final programme that will be the envy of all those who could not get their hands on tickets to this major sporting event.
The package is estimated to be worth a minimum of £5,000 ($8750) yet it is thought that passionate football fans would easily pay that amount just for the tickets alone to be able to see their team play in a final that only takes place once every four years and is the pinnacle of global football.
Football fans of the world's greatest teams are either already in Germany for the 2006 finals or remain glued to their televisions around the world as the tournament comes down to the last 16 teams and the knockout phase of the competition.
The World Cup started in 1930 and in recent years has provided huge excitement and heart stopping action with great highs and lows as teams win through or are defeated and depart the competition to return home licking their wounds, questioning their ability or the wisdom of their failed tactics.
Favourites Brazil have not played to their potential so far, but neither have France, Italy or England, despite the latter already being through to the next round. Beckham, Rooney, Owen, Crouch, Gerrard, Lampard, Terry and their team mates will have to raise their game considerably if an England team that has promised so much in the past but has failed to deliver since the heady days of 1966 are to become champions once again.
Argentina however have played inspired fast passing football and have outclassed all opposition to reach the last 16. It could be their year to lift the world famous Jules Rimmet trophy, this time though without the 'Hand of God' used by Diego Maradonna to help Argentina beat England in a controversial quarter final match in 1986 in Mexico.
Reverse auctions are becoming ever more popular with companies offering everything from Ferraris to plasma televisions and cash prizes. The fact that bidding is cheap and the winner does not pay the amount of the winning bid, but simply receives the prize on offer if they are successful, means that everyone can try their hand at winning.
The World Cup Final Tickets auction is open to all football and sports fans worldwide, but they will have to hurry to have a chance of fulfilling their dream before that July 2nd deadline.
