FIFA Says World Cup Tickets With 300% Mark-Up Being Sold On Black Market
Published December 16, 2013
WORLD CUP LEGACY: EUROSPORT reported Brazilian American football team Cuiaba Arsenal "hope to share in the spoils bequeathed to their city by a rival code." Paulo Cesar, a 32-year-old lawyer, "could not be happier." His team is to benefit from the World Cup when it switches homes from its "modest ground to Cuiaba's World Cup stadium, the Arena Pantanal." Founded in '06, the club has been Brazilian national champions twice, in '10 and '12. Six players "have gone on to play college football" in the U.S. and the club regularly attracts crowds of around 4,500 to its entirely amateur matches. Cesar, who plays on offense for the team, agreed that "there is an irony that one of the legacies of the World Cup will be to boost American Football in the city and the state of Mato Grosso" (EUROSPORT, 12/15).
