2014 World Cup: FIFA reveals ticket prices, Brazilians won themselves better treatment Fans from other countries may be forced to spend a small fortune on tickets for the 2014 World Cup. Very cheapest entry stands at $90 (€69), while most expensive one is $990 (€755). Brazilians will pay three times less, which seems to be the result of massive demonstrations protesting the tournament.

While UEFA representatives outlined the problem of increasing ticket prices yesterday, FIFA officials don’t really seem to mind. Ticket prices for the upcoming 2014 World Cup were revealed yesterday and already received a lot of criticism.

Least attractive Category 3 seat for the least prestigious group game costs $90, which is the only value below $100 in the entire ticket chart, presented below. We leave it up to you to decide whether you choose Brazil as your football-holiday destination next year.

Interestingly, the announcement gives significantly better treatment to Brazilians. It’s not even the fact that they’ll be paying less than others, but the host nation will even be charged less than during the recent Confederations Cup (!).

And quite a lot less – cheapest Confed ticket for Brazilians stood at $57, while cheapest World Cup ticket is $30. It’s hard to believe that millions in the streets had nothing to do with it, though – obviously – FIFA made no remark about them.
