FIFA has told fans that ticketing arrangements for the forthcoming Women’s World Cup cannot be changed, despite receiving complaints.

The governing body said it had made clear at the time of purchase that “not all seats would be located next to each other”.

With the tournament in France due to start on June 7, FIFA announced on Monday that tickets were now available to print at home.

However, the news brought complaints, with those assuming they had bought tickets together now told otherwise.

“Dear fans. We have noted some of your comments, re: your tickets,” read a message on the tournament’s official Twitter account.

“When you placed your order, a message indicating not all seats would be located next to each other did appear, before confirmation of your purchase.

“Unfortunately, we will not be able to modify your order.

“However, an exception could be made for parents whose seats are not next to the seats of their underage children (18 years old and younger).

“For more info, do not hesitate to contact the ticketing customer service team.”

Disgruntled fans replied, calling the situation “ridiculous” and demanding a change to the policy.

England and Scotland have both qualified and have been paired together in Group D.

They play each other at the 35,000-capacity Allianz Riviera on June 9.
