🇧🇷 1950 WC FINAL TICKET
An original ticket 🎫 for the 1950 WC finals ⚽️ played at Maracanã Stadium in Rio de Janeiro, 🇧🇷 Brazil 1 X 2 Uruguay 🇺🇾 aka Maracanzo 🏆🇺🇾 This ticket was reported sold at an auction for R$ 3,000.00 last week (initial price was R$ 70.00 as it wasn’t in perfect condition). The ticket was for the now extinct standing room section called “GERAL”. The stadium held over 200,000 people for the 1950 finals, however, since renovations for the 2014 tournament its capacity was reduced to 78,838 and with that, the one of a kind ‘GERAL’ section went into extinction! Brazilian news source Esporte.uol.com.br reported, and the article is by Gabriel Carneiro.
I added the official FIFA mini poster for the competition, and some additional photos as usual for extra fun: the stadium under construction, President Dutra walking in for inauguration, pre game festivities, the handshake, starting line up, and some photos from the match (photos are from the book MARACANÃ, Meio Século de Paixão, by João Maximo, and are all copyrighted - Abril Imagens, Agência Estado, Agência JB, Agência O Globo, Arquivo Geral da Cidade do Rio de Janeiro, and Jornal dos Sports.
