Fans will pay $90 for tickets to see World Cup matches in Brazil next year, $10 more than in 2010 in South Africa. Announcing ticket rates Friday, FIFA said $15 seats will be available to Brazilian students, people older than 60 and members of social programs. In 2010, South African residents could pay $20. Host nation residents will have access to at least 400,000 discounted tickets from the publicly available total of about 3 million. Tickets will be sold globally from Aug. 20-Oct. 10 on fifa.com. A second sales phase opens Dec. 8, after the 32-team draw is made and the match schedule confirmed. FIFA said buyers can request a maximum of four seats per match. – AP
