The price of a top-end ticket at the World Cup is about $1250, depending on the game and the location. For a bit of context, the average monthly salary in Brazil is just $1193. Another shocking fact? According to Mother Jones, "For the cost of #Brazil2014, we could've paid for seven Mars rovers." More facts: bit.ly/1oNYDml
