SWC 2014 final seat at KES 80k

20 August 2013, 16:33

Nairobi - Tickets for the 2014 Soccer World Cup in Brazil went on sale on Tuesday, with fans able to apply on FIFA's website.

According to the BBC website, FIFA is expecting a similar demand to Germany 2006, when there were about seven applicants for every ticket of the 64-match tournament.

Around 3.3 million tickets will be available for the tournament with 700 000 of them going on sale to international fans, FIFA marketing director Thierry Weil confirmed.

Five hundred thousand cheaper tickets would be set aside exclusively for Brazilians, with many being offered at half price to pensioners, students and people receiving government aid.

Tickets will range in price from £58 (KES7 400) for first-round matches to £632 (KES 80 000) for the final at Maracana Stadium in Rio de Janeiro.

"It's always difficult to predict," said Weil. "But I truly believe that it will be more toward to what happened in Germany than in South Africa in 2010."

According to FIFA, the 2006 Soccer World Cup was attended by more than 3.3 million fans. Almost two million tickets were sold to the general public in South Africa, although the number of applications during the first ticketing phase was significantly lower.

The tournament begins on June 12, 2014 and takes place in 12 cities, with the final on July 13.
