FIFA has released the price list for tickets to the 2014 World Cup to be held in Brazil. Fans have until 10 October to apply and a ballot will decide which of the applications are successful. Read full article
Such high prices.........but that includes body armor. Even better.....as RC said, the armor comes in national colors!!
What was that murder rate again? Brasilio, is this why your military is building up?
nearly a THOUSAND DOLLARS,
i think i know what i can do with so much money,[ if a i had that much]
and tickets will not be one of them...
At first it looks expensive but the devil is in the details . It seems to be cheaper than South Africa - 20/ 15 . It is true different categories / groups but still not so expensive .
Indeed the devil is in the details. The fine print on the tickets copy the cigarette warning.
Caution: It has been determined that visiting Brazil may cost you your life. The murder rate is three times that of the next country per capita. YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED. Please wear flak jackets after 5PM.
So I could get you a ticket for USD 15 - who wants one? I don't give a rat's a$$ about football........
South Africa hardly has a low crime rate either. I remember the concerns before they held the tournament. I would be more concerned that the stadia are completed in time in Brazil.
I doubt very much that they will!
I am with % when it comes to futbol. However I can hardly believe that the current trend in murders in Brazil couples with the civil unrest and the fact that FIFA already expressed regret in choosing Brazil and have warned Brazil on the progress of the stadiums does not bode well for Brazil. Wasn't there a cancellation of a test event at the Maracana stadium in May? I think Brazil ordered a fat's man's meal with an Ethiopian appetite.
It is all becoming worrying . The stadiums may not be ready on time and the crime rate !
The crime rate is ready now!
Most of stadia are already completed and crime rate is not a reason for worrying when police and army is taking care of the events. Notice that we didn't have incidents during Confeds Cup.
There were some @11. I am not sure if it is more dangerous than South Africa but they certainly managed the event pretty well. Some friends went and had not trouble at all and felt well taken care of by the locals.
@8 Yes, a practise event was cancelled and the roof fell in after rain.
On the other hand, they may just pull it out of the bag.
Well I am certainly not cheering for anyone to fail. Well, exception, CFK. If they pull it off good for them.
South Africa crime is far more worse than in Brazil. Captain poopy and most brits are just to poor (and ignorant) that they can't afford a ticket..those are the facts. All the stadiums are on schedule and during the confederations cup, which i visited, nothing happened.
I take it then that the richArgentinians and Brazilians will be filling the stadia and paying exorbitant prices fro the privilege .
If you are that way inclined, it is better and safer to watch it on TV
