So now England have qualified for the world cup, how do I get tickets?

Well, you'll have to wait until November 5th, when FIFA will reopen their sales office through their website, fifa.com.

The window will remain open until November 28th, and will be sold on a first come, first served basis. There'll be a further chance to buy tickets after the World Cup draw in December.

A ticket for a group stage match will cost between £58 and £112, and get more expensive as the tournament progresses. A ticket for the final could cost up to £600.

One million tickets have already gone on sale. It was massively oversubscribed, with 6 million applications, mostly from within Brazil.

There are 2 million more to be sold.

Going to the World Cup is going to be expensive, with hotel rooms ranging from betweem £150 - £800 a night.

Average dinner is estimated to be around £29, and even a McDonalds meal will cost £11.

A bottler of water should be around £1.30, and a beer around £ 4.
