JOHANNESBURG (AP) - The World Cup total stadium attendance will pass 3 million at the Germany-Spain semifinal match on Wednesday.

FIFA says 2,997,000 people have attended the first 61 matches, for an average of 49,134 with three games left to play.

The figures place South Africa third in both categories, behind the 1994 tournament in the United States and the 2006 edition in Germany.

South Africa had a total capacity of 3.42 million but few matches have totally filled stadiums.
