    OK Chavos, only 2 years away.. The time is now to start planning and saving those dollars.

    I know there were a few of us that went to Brazil 14, I met up with a few Bigsoccer people and it was fun partying in the fan fest and @ games.

    I'll try and update this thread with news and tips.

    if you have any questions, Ask away.. I wish i was more informed in Brazil, could have saved a lot of money.

    Mod note: This isn't a thread to talk about the team or to bitch about the coach..

    Let's do this!

    @Wiso If you don't mind, how much did you spend versus how much did you PLAN on spending? You don't have to be exact, if it's private. However, you can share the difference! :)

    And based on your inside info, how much are we mutants going to need for Russia?

    Strength in numbers in case the Russian hooligans want to get violent. I assume we'll be drawing huge crowds once more.

    I don't mind sharing Hugol..

    I budgeted for 10k, saving money for about 3 years. Total amount i spent was actually cheaper. I spent a total of $9200..
    That was for a total of 5 matches.

    Mexico vs Croatia (Recife)
    Mexico vs Holand ( Fortaleza)
    Costa Rica vs Italia ( Recife)
    US vs Germany ( Recife)
    Ecuador vs Francia ( at the Maracana in Rio)
    2 weeks of Hotels and flights between cities.


    I actually think it will be cheaper than Brazil or about the same. Im planning for 10k again but i believe transportation will not be as crazy as it was in 14. There will be trains instead of flights, unless Mexico plays in the east of Russia..

    Plus i heard Russia might help us travelers with free train passes with the purchase of tickets

    "Mejorame la raza, George" me van a decir las rubias extaciadas cuando llegué a Rusia.

    Después de los triunfos de México a pelear un rato con los ultras rusos y luego a celebrar con drogas duras, carajo!
















    On the real though, I really want to go. And this World Cup looks like the one for me. Keep us updated with news and specially tips since I'm going to need all the help I can get.
    And like Hugo said.. hopefully it doesn't come down to that.. but if the Euros are any indication of the violence that might happen with the Russians then we need all of our compas to be strong in numbers.

    Couldn't get those tickets on the lottery.. That's another thing you have to be thinking about, tickets are hard to get.

    it's not as easy as it sounds. Fifa mailed the tickets a month in advance. If you found anyone to sell you a ticket you would have to pay a lot more for flights and hotels since it was a month away. Prices were outrageous.

    plus, Stub HUb and other "verified" services were not allowed to sell tickets. it was through Craiglist or forums that people traded or sold tickets. The only way to sell them were to meet someone and look at the tickets since there were a lot of scams..
