    Rule-of-thumb with ATMs here: inside a bank? Good. Inside a store? Well, if I don't have any other option. On any public place, like airports, bus stations, the street? Avoid as possible.

    It hurts to see this, I just went to the bank to pay my rent :p

    Un patrocinador le da 10 Entradas para la final a la Federación. La Federación entonces subastas estas entradas. La subasta comienza con el valor del boleto y podría llegar a venderse por 3 veces o 5 veces el precio. No sé el precio final de venta, ya que es una subasta.

    El dinero de esta venta se lo da la Federación a la caridad a través de la FIFA. Esta es una donación real, no es una donación pequeña como una camisa o cinco dólares.

    Hay muchas otras maneras de conseguir Entradas para la final, pero estoy tratando todas las formas posibles para mí y mis amigos. Si tienes otra manera, estoy interesado en eso también.

    Thanks for the advice Lucas! I plan on only going to ATM's inside at the bank branches; that seems like the safest bet.

    I apologize if I offended you by posting the picture of the money! I wasn't trying to rub in anyone's face! Not sure if you are aware of American comedian, Dave Chappelle's famous line "I'm Richhhhh B***tchhh!" It's a very popular funny line here in the U.S. I just wanted to show the forum what the Reais look like to add to my post, and I am by no means 'Rich'. Haha. Hope you aren't really upset with me! Paying rent makes me very sad as well! :(

    My friend is a personal banker and one time I called him up and said, "hey John, I need a loan." "Oh really, well cool, I mean what kind of loan? Car? House?..." "I need 70,000$ in cash to make it rain in a rap video. I'll have it back by Sunday."

    have anyone successfully transfer ALL of their ticket for one match to someone else? I have found a person to trade my 3x game ticket for his 3x game ticket. since i do not have the physical ticket, and according to our schedule, there is little to no chance to meet to swap ticket, so i m thinking of fully transfer the ticket to his name and vice versa.

    i remember in germany 06 and africa 10, i was able to do all that. Thanks.

    I have to remember to measure my words, it's hard to get the right tone in a foreign language.

    By the way, that is the new design of the currency. The old design is still around however, and it's very common. Just so you guys don't get an older-looking note and worry someone's trying to trick you.

    What are the predictions for who will play in Match 58 (Qtr finals in Rio)?

    Need some advice: I have someone I am considering trading my 49 for their 58s and I'm struggling as to whether it's "even value." I found this person on Craigslist, seems legit and who knows...could very well be on this forum.

    His 58 are obviously further along in tournament and at Maracana. However, 49 pretty much guaranteed to be Brasil playing! I've got Cat 1 ($220) and his are Cat 3 ($165). What do you guys think would be fair?

    @tabar you can trade 49 CAT 1 for 58 CAT 1 without any trouble. Brasil game more valuable than Rio game. Rio and SP game more valuable than rest of country game, for trading price not important, is between 2 people and what they think is fair. Be patient, many people have 58 CAT 1, you can get good trade for your tickets. M58 will be European teams so local demand will not be so high like Brasil game.

    Thanks for your input!! That's along the lines of my thinking as well. He's asking for trade + 200, which isn't sitting well with me.

    @tabar tickets start to ship now. You wait few days, see seat of your ticket, see seat of other ticket and then you make good trade decision.

    Good point. I know my Match 55 "Cat-1" seat is right in the lower part of the corner. Who knows, you might be lucky and your seats are in the center. But the question is, when will FIFA really start shipping the f'ing tickets??!!

    @tabar I'd recommend holding off to be honest. I think you'd be getting the short end of the stick unless there was some sort of price difference factored in given the disparity in the category.

    A lot of tickets are still going on sale and unfortunately (SP games eventually).

    Just make sure you have the Scorpion Scanner running so you can make moves at 4am in case those tix you want pop up.

    And if you can't work out a deal with the Craigslist guy, I'll be more than happy to take the 2nd Round games off your hands since that has been my white whale along with the Opener. :D

    hold up, does this mean the people who are buying tickets during this phase are going to get better seats than me since i bought mine in the fcfs of march? when they use the word "allocated" it really confuses me, does my seat get assigned the moment i collect ticket???

    I don't think so. I got a Cat-1 ticket to Match 55 yesterday (the only one where I remembered to take a screenshot), and it's not a top Cat-1 seat, at least in my opinion. It's right in the corner. I hope Row AA means it's 27 rows up so I can see the other end of the pitch, although I guess it would be cool for corners to be right down in front.

    I know at some stadiums I've been to, row AA was one of the front rows closest to the field. I remember being pissed because I was row A and thought I was field level, ended up having this damn AA row in front of me. Buzz-Kill!

    AA could also be after Z.

    I was thinking AA came after Z, but I don't know. I guess it would be cool to be the actual front row, at least when the action is right there in front of you.

    Ibought 10 match tickets using two FIFA accounts,but I don't know if they can let me collect all the tickets in FIFA venue ticketing centres.... Can anyone please give me an answer?

    Thanks, I purchased with two credit card but all under my name. I am a little bit worried they could take all the ticket back saying that I have violated the sales restrictions... It's a big problem...

    Just so you guys know for the future, if you click on the AA or 42 in the above example it will zoom in to there and show you exactly which seats you are in
