Initial Brazil World Cup 2014 tickets go on sale
Newscast Media RIO DE JANEIRO—The first batch of tickets for the 2014 World Cup in
Brazil have gone on sale, 295 days before the tournament kicks off. FIFA officials are
hoping for demand comparable to the 2006 tournament in Germany.
Fans can now apply for their tickets to the World Cup on the website of world
football’s governing body FIFA. The first phase of ticket sales for the 2014 World Cup
began at 10.00 GMT Tuesday; but fans did not need to race to the website. All
requests submitted before October 10 will be entered into a random selection draw in
the likely event of demand exceeding supply.
