England fans set to flock to Brazil to see World Cup
25 Apr 2014

New figures released by Fifa, world football's governing body, have suggested that more than 50,000 fans will be travelling to Brazil this summer to watch the World Cup.

Of course, England are not one of the favourites for the event, but that is unlikely to dampen the enthusiasm of fans, who are known throughout the world for their vocal support.

It has been confirmed that England fans have bought as many as 53,387 match tickets for the tournament, which is set to have a positive impact on the local tourism industry.

Elsewhere, it has been revealed that fans from Brazil and the US are responsible for buying the most number of match tickets.

Germany, meanwhile, have been allocated 53,583, which is marginally more than England. 

Elsewhere, reigning champions Spain have been handed 12,985 tickets. The games are to be played in 12 host cities and will then be beamed around the world.ADNFCR-408-ID-801715334-ADNFCR
