Have a look at the tickets forum, a guy I think is called Bezza has just posted an article from www.bbc.co.uk
regarding online tickets for WC2006! I bought all of my tickets for France and Portugal and loads of other matches off touts but they did not have RFID, it's only been commercially viable in the last year or so. Check it out for yourself and do some research. There will be 2 ticket checks in Germany, the first perimeter will be a simple ticket check just to confirm that you have tickets and the second check is where it gets difficult. FIFA and the German authorities are aiming to check 50-60% of punters to make sure their photo ID corresponds to the info on the ticket. In addition, if you buy a stolen ticket (which is quite common) all the original owner has to do is log on to FIFA's website and cancell the ticket electronically. When the punter with the stolen ticket approaches the turnstile (within 15 feet) the steward will see a warning to say that the ticket has been flagged and the punter will be refused entry. Like I say if you don't believe me check it out for yourselves, all the info is on the net. When I was in New York recently I was in a hostel with 2 Hamburg fans and they were telling me that the German authorities are scared shitless of English, German, Dutch and Polish fans going bezerk and are paranoid about Al Qaida and all the ' Mohammed cartoon' bollocks. Therefore, security is of paramount importance! Who knows it may all turn out to be nonsense like previous tournaments but my mates are waiting until after me and a couple of others have been to the Paraguay match to check everything out!
