Infographic: Who’s buying 2014 World Cup tickets?

Womenforfootball.com – I came across a nicely done Infographic by Globe and Mail newspaper, where it showcases the percentage of 2014 World Cup tickets sold by country.

As expected, due to economic burden of Brazilian population and FIFA’s initiative for World Cup hosts to allocate more tickets to local citizens, Brazilians hold 0.60% of tickets at upcoming 2014 World Cup games.

Next biggest attendants at 2014 World will be Australian nationals. Although it is surprising, but large population of immigrants at Australia and their enthusiasm for football could be one of the reasons.

Chileans, whom are neighbours of Brazil are third largest group of fans at 2014 World Cup games.

Even Argentinians who are not particular fans of Brazil have relatively large portion of World Cup tickets.

Last but not least, it is pleasing to notice football enthusiasts of Canada, mostly born outside Canada, will have bigger fan group than that of Mexico’s, France’s and Germany’s.
