MATCH Hospitality AG ("MATCH"), Jaime and Enrique Byrom
Sunday 26 February 2012
The article "Blatter embroiled in new controversy – this time over tickets" on 20 November 2011 stated that, despite MATCH's performance in the 2010 Fifa World Cup, it did not have to tender for the hospitality rights it was granted by Fifa for the 2014 Fifa World Cup. In fact, MATCH was awarded hospitality rights for the 2014 Fifa World Cup after a formal bid process in 2007.
MATCH has advised us that: it made a long-term investment into the 2010 and 2014 Fifa World Cups; its performance must be measured over both events; and, from its perspective, its operational performance in 2010 was a success. We would also like to make clear that neither Jaime nor Enrique Byrom received any tickets personally from Fifa for the 2010 or 2014 World Cups and that MATCH, not Jaime or Enrique Byrom, was granted the rights from Fifa to distribute tickets. We would like to apologise to MATCH and Jaime and Enrique Byrom for any inaccuracies.
