Brazil World Cup will 'be cheapest ever'

2nd Jul 2013

As if the World Cup isn't a mouthwatering enough proposition as it is, football's governing body has now announced that next year's tournament in Brazil will be the cheapest yet.

Fifa Secretary-General Jerome Valcke said 70% of the games at one of the world's premier sporting events would cost less than before.

But fans thinking of travelling to next year's jamboree will discover that Brazil is about so much more than football.

The country boasts the Zoological Park of São Paulo, restaurants galore and cultural sites including the infamous Catedral da Sé.

Brazil's footballing capital, Rio de Janeiro, is a World Heritage Site, and hosts one of the Seven New Wonders of the World, Christ the Redeemer, the planet's largest Art Deco-style sculpture.

FIFA 2014 World Cup ticket prices will be published on July 19.

The recently finished Confederations Cup gave a taste of what football fans on specialist tours to Brazil can expect.

Fifa President Sepp Blatter hailed the event as a success, despite the demonstrations which brought millions to the streets.
