Last week, when the FIFA World Cup 2014 Draw finally decided what teams will play in which Brazilian host cities for the next World Cup, England, Italy, Cameroon, Croatia, Portugal, Honduras, Switzerland and the USA all got the news that their players, coaches and fans were all dreading: Of the 12 possible World Cup host cites, they would be the eight teams that would make the trek into the jungle for the first World Cup games in history played in the Amazon.
Sounds awesome, right? A rumble in the jungle!
So, how did you fair in FIFA’s initial electronic lottery phase of ticket sales for the 2014 FIFA World Cup in Brazil? Yeah, I didn’t fair so well, either, but I did manage tickets to one game, in Natal, on June 16. My wife and I scrambled to buy what we could salvage during the first-come, first-serve sales phase in which FIFA sold approximately 220,000 tickets in seven hours. We bought the tickets teams unknown, but thanks to the World Cup draw on Friday, we now know that we’ll be enjoying USA vs Ghana!
