2013-08-20 12:33:40 | (0 Comments)
Tickets for the 2014 World Cup in Brazil went on sale today, with fans able to apply on FIFA’s website.
FIFA is expecting a similar demand to Germany 2006, when there were about seven applicants for every ticket of the 64-match tournament.
Around 3.3 million tickets will be available for the tournament.
Tickets will range in price from US$90 for first-round matches to US$990 for the final at Maracana Stadium in Rio de Janeiro.
Brazilian citizens over 60, local students and members of some social programs can purchase tickets for US$23.
All applications made before October 10, 2013 will enter a random selection draw if there are not enough tickets available to fulfil all requests.
The sales of the leftover tickets will begin on November 5 on a first-come, first-served basis. Another phase will begin on December 8 after the draw is made.
The tournament begins on June 12, with Brazil playing the opener in Sao Paulo.
