Rio de Janeiro, May 23 - Football's governing body FIFA has warned that fans with unauthorized tickets will be barred from entering stadiums during the World Cup.

The Zurich-based body expressed concern in a statement released Thursday about the illegitimate ticket sales for the June 12-July 13 event, reported Xinhua.
