Price of a ticket to the World Cup final

CNBC

The World Cup is one of the most popular events on earth. In 2014, 3.2 billion people watched the tournament, and one billion people watched the final between Argentina and Germany, reports CNBC. Today, soccer fans around the world will once again crowd around TVs and phone screens and gather in cafes and bars to watch the final match between France and Croatia. A lucky 80,000 spectators will pack into Luzhniki Stadium in Moscow to watch the action live.

FIFA released the ticket prices for the World Cup final in September of 2017. The prices are divided by category. Category one offers the best views from the side and are the most expensive, category two offers seats at the corners of the field and category three is behind each goal. Fans had to enter a lottery in order to receive one of these tickets.

Of course, as the final game approaches, the cost of a ticket has skyrocketed. According to Reuters, tickets are now being resold for around $2,500 and according to Goal.com, category one seats can reach up to $105,000 on resale sites.

Croatian fan Zdenko Corluka, who is already in Russia for the World Cup, tells Reuters that 25 of his friends have wired him money so that he could buy them tickets. “It’s a lot of money, but this is one time in your life,” he says.
