Speaking at a C&IT-led event, Cooper said: "We are taking three groups to Cape Town, although the numbers will be down compared to Germany four years ago."
Cooper said that inflated prices meant that there were still many unsold tickets and that football associations could return unsold allocations. "England have not sold their ticket allocation, which is unheard of," said Cooper. "There are 6,000 tickets left still. Denmark has sold about 870 tickets of 18,500."
Despite these problems, he predicted that clients would still want to attend the tournament.
