FIFA confirms the 2010 World Cup final is a sell-out and that no spare tickets will be available for Sunday's final between Holland and Spain.

FIFA also named 38-year-old Howard Webb as referee for the Championship game. Webb refereed three matches at the tournament thus far and has neither shown a red card nor awarded a penalty. And in some unfortunate soccer news, hundreds of fans missed the World Cup semi-final between Germany and Spain after chaos at the airport in Durban delayed their landing or forced planes to turn back. FIFA says they may compensate fans.
