FIFA says people in the United States have bought more than three times as many World Cup tickets than those in any other nation except for host Brazil.
Soccer's governing body said Tuesday that of the 2,577,662 tickets allocated for this year's tournament, 1,041,418 have gone to people in Brazil. The U.S. is second at 154,412, followed by Australia (40,681), England (38,043) and Colombia (33,126).
The tournament opens June 12 and is in Brazil for the first time since 1950. The Americans are making their seventh straight appearance and play Ghana, Portugal and Germany in the first round.
Prices range from $90 to $175 in the first round, other than the opener. They go up to $440 to $990 for the final in Rio de Janeiro on June 13.
