12:10 pm on 28 October 2009

The last 500 tickets for the 2010 World Cup football qualifying match between Bahrain and New Zealand were snapped up on Wednesday morning.

Sales opened at 9am and all were sold within seven minutes.

The match is on 14 November at Westpac stadium in Wellington.

A plan for an extra 3000 temporary seats on the ground was rejected by FIFA for security reasons.

New Zealand need to win the match to qualify for the finals in South Africa.
