Has anyone here ever been to the World Cup ? On the Fifa website the third game for Peru in Sochi says unavailable. I looked online for resellers and found a link to a stub hub type thing but then I read that FIFA is issuing special tix with your name and some sort of hologram on them and that you need a separately issued fifa id to get into the stadium and that if you buy from a reseller you wont get in

Does anyone have any idea about this or any legit companies that do packages ? I guess kind of like what CoSport does with the olympics ( which is a ripoff )

The one tour company that seems legit in Peru that Nathalie found wants like 8k per person for a 6 day 1 game package and no way am I going to get ripped off for that for 1 game and only a few days in Russia

Nothing yet, but everyone was focused on the final week of the Bundesliga yesterday.

Focused on what exactly? The league was determined in what November? ;)

Maybe they are all fans of the dinosaur finally going down.

Don't go. As much as it sucks, wait it out 8 years. Russia and Qatar are not places I can recommend going to.

With that said, it seems as if StubHub does have a dedicated international site to sell tickets, i.e: intl.stubhub.com/football-world-cup-2018...80&utm_source=sh-com

Thx I'll call stubhub but after reading the FIFA website I'm not sure I'm comfortable trying to buy from third party reseller. Especially not to Russia with all that planning etc

My nephew and niece live in Cologne but they are rabid Borussia Dortmund fans. It is hard to be a fan of FC Köln when they are annually bottom dwellers. This year they are are even worse than Hamburg!
The Bundesliga is likely the strongest league in Europe but this year especially it is Bayern and everyone else.
