RIO, BRAZIL — Black market ticket prices for the World Cup were sky high in Rio this Sunday evening – for the match Argentina v Bosnia at the showpiece Maracana Stadium.
Scalpers and touts were asking around 11 hundred dollars for tickets to see the game – taking advantage of the huge interest from Argentinian fans. Crowds of Argentinians were gathered outside the stadium talking to touts – but there were not many takers at those prices.
Rio has been alive with tens of thousands of their fans for the past four days – Brazil’s neighbours pouring over the border to support their nation.
Bosnian fans have also made their presence felt in the city’s bars – specially along the sea front on Copacabana Beach.
The game ended in defeat for the team from Eastern Europe – beaten 2-1 by the South Americans, who are many people’s favourites to lift the trophy itself back at the Maracana when the final is held there next month.
