How much do you need to go to the 2018 FIFA World Cup?

This 2018, you can either purchase an apartment, several cars...or support the National Football Team

You need to have over MXN$900,000 (USD$47,000) to go to Russia and watch the first three games of the Mexico National Football Team.

It seems a small fortune is required to support the team of Juan Carlos Osorio against the national teams of Germany, South Korea, and Sweden.

In Mexico, this amount is enough to buy a couple of apartments in the central state of Querétaro, almost five 2018 cars, pay for your child's Med School at a private university, finance three and a half weddings, travel 95 times to Cancún or go four times and a half to the next Super Bowl in Minnesota.

Mundomex Group, the official agency supported by the FIFA and the Mexican Football Association is offering, for the amount of MXN$911,712 per person (USD$47,503), a package including plane tickets to Moscow, tickets for the games of the Mexico Football Team, shuttle to the stadium, and accommodation at a five-star hotel.

Paying to see only the semifinals and the finals is slightly “cheaper”, as you only need MXN$869,158 (USD$45,280) per person.

“All the services hired have been confirmed a long time ago. We are in contact with the [Mexican] Ministry of Foreign Affairs in case someone losses a passport, and we have a 24/7 call center available,” said Rafael Nosti, Sales and Special Events manager of Mundomex Group.

Mexicans are the world's third fanbase to have purchased more tickets for the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia.

To purchase packages including all services, football fans need almost one million Mexican pesos.
