With 296 days to go before the World Cup in Brazil kicks off next summer, FIFA have today started the application process to apply for tickets.

With around 3.3 millions tickets to be available for the tournament, the governing body is expecting a demand similar to the one they saw for the competition in Germany in 2006.

Ticket prices will range from £58, for first-round matches, to £632 for the final that will be held at the Maracana Stadium in Rio de Janerio.

Thierry Weil, FIFA’s marketing director, said: “It’s always difficult to predict but I truly believe that it will be more toward what happened in Germany than in South Africa in 2010.”

All applications made before 10 October 2013 will enter a random selection draw, while the leftover tickets sales will begin on 5 November.

A third date of December 8 will be added for ticket applications, after the official draw for the tournament has been made.

With 12 different venues set to host a fixture, the tournament gets underway on 12 June with Brazil playing the opening match in Sao Paulo.

Other prices, complied by BBC World Service, show it's going to be a costly day out.
