ECC-Net has published a leaflet for consumers heading for the 2014 FIFA World Cup in Brazil. A practical pdf guide has been made in cooperation with Brazilian Association of Consumer Defence, PROTESTE. The ECC-Net has also received the agreement of the FIFA to use the official title of the world cup in the leaflet.
The leaflet contains overview of the consumer rights in Brazil as well as some practical tips for the tournament visitors: Advice and tips for eating and drinking, payment methods and shopping, mobile and internet connections and charges, emergency numbers, travellers rights when arriving and leaving the country etc.
The ECC-Net Consumer Guide also contains the 2014 World Cup Schedule as well as a list of some key Portuguese words to ease interaction with the locals.
We advise consumers to buy tickets only through official channels. The FIFA webpages offer a secure channel for buying tickets for World Cup games.
