2014 World Cup Brazil

Next year, soccer’s greatest spectacle returns to beautiful Brazil for the first time in 64 years. While Brazil didn’t invent the game (credit for that goes to England), there’s no doubt that it’s Brazil who has perfected and mastered what is by far the most popular sport on the planet.

Held every four years, the World Cup is second only to the Olympic Games in terms of the number of participating countries, though it holds the title for being the world’s most widely viewed sporting event. Approximately 3.3 million tickets will be available for 2014 World Cup and will go on sale in 2013. The sale process will begin in August after the 2013 Confederations Cup which is also being staged in Brazil. The first batch of tickets that go on sale will be distributed via a lottery system. Fans can apply for tickets which will then be randomly distributed. This phase of the ticket selling process is available to anyone from any country.

For those unable to get tickets for what is sure to be the biggest party of the decade, there will be “fan fests” held at each host city complete with activities for fans of the game. Host cities will include: Curitiba, Porto Alegre, Rio de Janeiro, Belo Horizonte, Brasilia, Cuiaba, Manaus, Salvador, Recife, Natal, Fortaleza and Sao Paulo.

The World Cup’s opening match will take place on June 12, 2014 in Sao Paulo. The Final is scheduled for July 13 at the iconic Maracana stadium in Rio de Janeiro.

For more information about Brazil and obtaining tickets for the 2014 World Cup, contact your local travel professional.
