Ticket prices for next summer’s Brazil World cup have been unveiled and the high prices for overseas fans have left many football fans unhappy.

The cheapest seat for an overseas fan at the competition is £59, with the least expensive ticket for an overseas fan for the final coming in at a whopping £288. On the other hand, tickets to locals will start at £10.

Tickets will be on sale from August 10 until October 10, during which period fans will go into a ballot to decide who has been successful.

The World Cup in Brazil has been hit by negative publicity as Brazil has been rocked by protest about how much the tournament is costing the public, with FIFA president Sepp Blatter even going as far as to say to German press agency DPA on Wednesday that, “If this [protest] happens again, we have to question whether we made the wrong decision awarding the hosting rights.”

England’s friendly with Brazil earlier this year, held in Rio de Janeiro’s famous Marcana stadium, came under threat when health and safety fears over the renovated stadium’s readiness for a match caused it to be suspended by a court order. This was subsequently overturned and the match went ahead, ending in a 2-2 draw, with Wayne Rooney and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain scoring.
