2014 FIFA World Cup Soccer

The maximum ticket price in U.S. dollars for a Quarter Finals match is $330. At the time of posting this such a ticket is being offered on eBay for sale in Rio at $500. See Link below.

FIFA is the only legitimate source for legitimate tickets sold outside of a MATCH Hospitality or Corporate package that has been authorised for sale by FIFA.

The prices for all of the Matches can be found at the FIFA website page below.

http://www.fifa.com/worldcup/organisation/ticketing/prices-matches/index.html

You can also download two PDF documents from that page, including a colour Official Ticket Guide brochure in English, which has a picture of an example Ticket on page 12. The ticket prices in this Guide are in Brazilian currency ( called “the Real” ).

The “2014 FIFA World Cup Ticketing Q&A” Brochure states on page 5 that FIFA has tasked MATCH services with implementing a full ticketing enforcement program. This Brochure also suggests that there would be a final allocation of 75 per cent of all tickets to the general public.

The public is asked to report unauthorised sales of tickets to:

enforcement@match-ag.com

Below are screenshots of Viagogo showing Category C tickets to the Quarter Finals, officially selling at $165 USD per ticket, being offered for purchase at a whopping $1,6221.

If you like reading, you may get some consolation by downloading or reading the    Weekly magazines   of FIFA online.  They are quite interesting to read.
