High Demand During 180,000 Ticket Release for the 2014 FIFA World Cup in Brazil

FIFA released 180,000 World Cup tickets today for all the matches which make it one hot ticket. The sale just went on sale an hour and a half ago on June 4, 2014 at 12:01am Brasilia time.

Here’s some bad news: All the games hosted in Sao Paulo and Rio de Janeiro are sold out. Photo courtesy of Bart Lapers:


If you’re like me, you’re probably stuck in the virual waiting room with a message like this:
