    Tickets for the 2014 World Cup in Brazil will be 10% higher than in 2010.

    Officials from FIFA and Brazil's LOC said that tickets to next summer's World Cup in Brazil "will cost approximately 10% more than tickets to the 2010 event in South Africa," according to Kevin Baxter of the L.A. TIMES. Int'l fans will have to pay as much as $990 for a seat at next July's final, "while the cheapest tickets for a group-play game" will sell for $90. In an apparent nod to the demonstrators, who were protesting the country's massive expenditures -- estimated at $13.4B -- "on the World Cup rather than on healthcare, education and other public service, a special ticket category for Brazilians was established."
