Three Million World Cup Tickets to Be Made Available in August
By iSportconnect | July 19, 2013
The first sales of tickets for the 2014 FIFA World Cup in Brazil are set to begin 20 August, herbal 2013, at 12:00 CET on FIFA.com.
In total 3 million tickets will be made available. Prices start at $90 for fans from outside of the host country; Brazilian residents’ tickets begin at $15 for students, over-60s and members of the Bolsa Família program.
The first sales period will be from 20 August to 10 October during which tickets applications may be submitted and will be collated and processed together.
If the number of applications received per match and category exceeds the number of available tickets, a lottery will be drawn to determine who receives tickets; however, Brazilian students, over-60s and Bolsa Família participants will be prioritized in the first 300,000 category 4 tickets.
Two limits have been set by the 2014 organisers to ensure that a wide base of fans have the best opportunities to receive tickets.
Firstly, only Brazilian citizens are entitled to receive the cheapest (category 4) tickets; secondly, a maximum of four tickets per match for up to seven matches may be purchased per household.
Additionally 1% of the total quantity of tickets have been set aside for disabled fans along with one complementary ticket for a companion to assist them.
