Hey soccer fans! Are you feeling some serious post-World Cup depression? Having regrets about not going to Brazil to experience the excitement in person? Wishing you could still see your favorite players dominate the game?
We know. We feel it too. We’re here to help.
To travel to Brazil for the World Cup, you could have easily spent $7,000, and that’s if you were lucky enough to get tickets before they hit the secondary market. Airfare, lodging (even couch surfing isn’t as cheap as you’d think), match tickets, transportation, team jerseys and corresponding face paint, food, drinks…the list goes on and on. Call it an once-in-a-lifetime adventure or call it a savings-sucker: either way, it was a huge chunk of change.
While World Cup tickets are notoriously expensive, there are plenty of chances to catch old pals like Clint and Omar without breaking the bank. Take the home field advantage literally and get your Major League Soccer tickets!
