World Cup ticketing centers opened in Brazil on Friday allowing fans who have managed to purchase match tickets for the June 12 to July 13 extravaganza to claim them.
Centers opened in ten of the 12 host cities — fans will only be able to pick tickets up in the capital Brasilia and the southern city of Porto Alegre from next month.
More than 2.5 million — or three quarters of those available — have been sold to date via the FIFA web platform set up for the purpose and each bears the name of the buyer in an attempt to limit scalping.
Dozens of fans queued up at the Maracana stadium in Rio de Janeiro, venue of the final, after the center opened at midday (1500 GMT).
Joao Bosco, 67, and Vanderson Balbino, 27, were both in place by 9 a.m to ensure they were first in line.
“I have tickets for four matches — including two at the Maracana,” Balbino told reporters.
“As I want to see a Brazil game I am going to try (to get a ticket) in one of the cities where they are playing.
Hip-hop star Chris Brown will stand trial on Monday for an alleged assault outside a trendy hotel in Washington.
If convicted, Brown could face up to six months in jail and a $1,000 fine.
Brown, 24, appeared in court Friday in the US capital in a crisp suit that made him look more like a genteel Wall Street banker than an actor, dancer and rap artist.
He stood with his hands by his side as Judge Patricia Wynn instructed him to return next week for the start of his trial.
In court supporting him was his mother Joyce Hawkins, friend and model Karrueche Tran and rapper Bow Wow, who the day before moderated a discussion with First Lady Michelle Obama at Washington’s Howard University.
Wynn put back the trial date after deciding she needed the Easter weekend to reach a verdict in a related case involving Brown’s bodyguard Chris Hollosy, 35, outside the downtown W Hotel on October 27 last year.
“I have to be confident about my verdict.
The United States said Friday there had been progress but no final deal in talks with Japan that are crucial to advancing the ambitious 12-country Trans-Pacific Partnership trade deal.
Negotiations failed to achieve a significant breakthrough just days before U. S. President Barack Obama, who has made the TPP a key goal of his administration, arrives in Tokyo on a state visit.
Intense negotiations this week narrowed the gap between the two sides, but “considerable differences remain,” U.
Seven of 51 guns discovered by TSA agents in airports across the country last week.
Another week heavy on the self-shootings. We have 40 total listings, and 21 of them involve people accidentally shooting themselves.
Seven of our listings involved law enforcement officers, active duty military, or security guards. Their seven accidents wounded three and killed two, including the astonishing death of a Marine guard posted at the entrance to Camp Lejeune, NC, accidentally shot by the other guard with whom he was standing duty.
Speaking of astonishing stories, here's one I didn't include in the list, because it just doesn't fit the category:
The Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department acknowledged Thursday that its deputies mistakenly shot and killed an aspiring TV producer earlier this week while responding to a stabbing and hostage standoff in West Hollywood.
