FOOTBALL : FIFA announce ticket prices for 2014 World Cup in Brazil

FIFA have announced the ticket prices for the 2014 World Cup in Brazil with prices being lower than previous editions of the World Cup.

Ticket prices for international fans attending the football World Cup in Brazil will start at $90 (£59, €69) for initial group matches.

Tickets will go on sale from 20 August 2013, and the biggest problem for football fans will be getting any sort of allocation, as the tickets will be massively oversubscribed, and applicants will go into a balloting system to "win" the right to purchase tickets.

In total about three million tickets will be available for fans, but demand will be much higher for most matches.

Football's governing body Fifa announced that the cheapest ticket for the final on 13 July will be $440 (£288) and the most expensive $990 (£650).

The TST tickets (team specific tickets to follow one team) are reasonably priced in Category 3, at just USD $297 for three group games, plus $605 for three knockout matches to the semi-finals, and a further $484 to include the final.

That's a total of $1384 - pricey but not outrageous given the demand.
