2014 FIFA World Cup Travel

The 2014 World Cup in Brazil has officially begun and is one of the biggest sporting events on the planet, with fans travelling from all corners of the globe. Whether you are a football fanatic or more relaxed unless there’s a World Cup on (like me) you’ll discover some staggering stats about those who travel, how much each country is spending on airfares and who’s travelling the furthest.

This will be Brazil’s second time hosting the FIFA World Cup, the last time being in 1950! Celebrating its 20th edition, the streets in Brazil have been decorated in an incredible fashion. If you have ever visited Brazil or know of the Rio carnival, you’ll know just how much love and passion that goes into lining the streets with colour and the World Cup is no exception..

This year’s sweepstakes was a complete disaster with myself managing to end up with Iran. It’s fairly safe to say I don’t think I’ll be celebrating this year with a winning team 🙁

We have found this brilliant infographic displaying World Cup travel by the numbers – Maybe you are supporting one of the teams listed..

    I got Ivory Coast in the sweepstake at work. Only just realised as I read this that they played last night and I forgot to check the score! That’s clearly a sign of how interested I am in football!

    I’ve had a fantastic time in Brazil touring it for 17 days from Copacabana to Pelourinho – Salvador,from Chapada Diamantina to Fortaleza, Belo, Ouro Preto and of course Brasilia , but the moments that struck me the most were the ones when the Brazilian fans started being proud all of the sudden at random games it was unbelievable, if Brazil wins the Cup, it will be because of them for sure World Cup’s unofficial anthem – Eu sou brasileiro com muito orgulho com muito amor! – Arena Castelão in Fortaleza –
