World Cup tickets are a hot commodity. After all, soccer, or football if you prefer, is the world’s most popular sport, and no other soccer tournament is bigger than the World Cup. Of course, you can watch all the action on television, but nothing compares to actually getting your hands on some World Cup tickets and seeing a game live. World Cup travel packages are available, and in addition to match tickets, they can include such things as your Brazil accommodations or transportation between the 12 different cities that have been chosen to host the matches. Remember that if you are a fan of a specific country and want to see that team play in the World Cup, it is best to get tickets for an early game. Once the elimination stages begin, there is no guarantee as to how far your team will be moving on.
List of Brazil's World Cup Cities
Manaus World Cup Tickets
The largest city in the Amazon, Manaus is surrounded by 1,000 miles of forest in every direction. In other words, this place is pretty remote. Thanks to the location, there is no better destination for combining World Cup 2014 action with Amazon Rainforest adventure.
Curitiba World Cup Tickets
The capital of the Brazilian state of Paraná, Curitiba is the most populous city in Brazil’s southern region with approximately 1.8 million inhabitants. And, if you secure some Curitiba World Cup tickets, you’ll get to watch a game at one of the country’s best and most intimate stadiums – the Arena da Baixada.
Sao Paulo World Cup Tickets
The largest metropolis not only in Brazil, but in all of South America, Sao Paulo will be full of revelers from around the globe come the 2014 World Cup. Get your Sao Paulo World Cup tickets now, and join the summer party in this sophisticated and cosmopolitan city.
Salvador World Cup Tickets
Salvador was established in 1549 and was the first urban area in Brazil to be settled by the Portuguese. History is certainly on display in this perfectly preserved city, but there is nothing historical about its brand new World Cup stadium.
Cuiaba World Cup Tickets
Get your hands on some World Cup tickets for a match in Cuiaba, and you’ll be heading to the geographical center of South America this summer.

Recife World Cup Tickets
Found along the coast in northeast Brazil, Recife is the center of a metropolitan area comprised of 13 different cities. Not necessarily a tourist hot spot, Recife has been chosen to host World Cup matches and will certainly get its fair share of visitors this summer.
Porto Alegre World Cup Tickets
A great place to visit, Porto Alegre is found in the deep south of Brazil and distinguishes itself with a subtropical climate and some unique cultural habits.

Natal is also known for its sweeping sand dunes, and the city’s World Cup stadium is actually designed to imitate these natural attractions.
Rio de Janeiro World Cup Tickets
