World Cup 2014

Germans reign -
Germany 1 - Argentina 0

The 2014 FIFA World Cup was the 20th FIFA World Cup, an international men's football tournament, that took place in Brazil from 12 June to 13 July 2014. It was the second time that Brazil has hosted the competition, the previous being in 1950. Brazil was elected unchallenged as host nation in 2007 after the international football federation, FIFA, decreed that the tournament would be staged in South America for the first time since 1978 in Argentina, and the fifth time overall.

The national teams of 31 countries advanced through qualification competitions that began in June 2011 to participate with the host nation Brazil in the final tournament. A total of 64 matches were played in twelve cities across Brazil in either new or redeveloped stadiums, with the tournament beginning with a group stage. For the first time at a World Cup Finals, the matches used goal-line technology.

With the host country, all world champion teams since the first World Cup in 1930 (Uruguay, Italy, Germany, England, Argentina, France and Spain) qualified for this competition. Spain was the defending champion, having defeated the Netherlands 1–0 in the 2010 World Cup final to win its first World title. The previous four World Cups staged in South America were all won by South American teams

A total of 473,076 tickets for the 2014 FIFA World Cup™ were allocated during the second random selection draw for all matches except the Opening Game in Sao Paulo and the Final in Rio de Janeiro. Brazilian fans received around 60 per cent of the inventory during this sales phase.

Fuelco is the official mascot of the 2014 FIFA World Cup in Brazil.
Fuleco is made out of soft Baby Boa plush and ideal for cuddling and play. The plush is meets the highest test standards and is suitable for children from 0 years.

To watch the FIFA World Cup games live in the stadiums, all spectators, including children of all ages, were required to buy tickets.

FIFA would like to reiterate that was the exclusive sales platform for 2014 FIFA World Cup tickets.
