Deemed to be the first World Cup to make use of goal line technology, this edition is expected to be one of the most exciting ones yet. Brazil has spent over 16 million dollars towards the development of infrastructure specifically for this event. Considered to be one of the most expensive editions of the world cup ever, even the official time piece, The Hublot Big Bang, Unico Bi-Retrograde Chrono is an exclusive piece to own.
Get ready for a luxurious viewing in the state of the art stadiums. Out of the 12 ultra-modern stadiums in Belo Horizonte, Brasilia, Manaus, Porto Alegre, Salvador, Sao Paulo and 6 other cities, the matches being held on the Rio de Janeiro: Estadio do Maracana are deemed to be the most exciting. In fact, this is where the finals will be held. For those who intend to stay in Brazil for the entire cup, each one of these cities offers myriad of opportunities to explore its magnificent history, culture, natural environs and opulent urban lifestyles that arrive in the form of luxury brands, boutiques and fine dining restaurants. A great way to witness history in the making is by choosing to book yourself a VIP seat across these stadiums.
With each participating team receiving a minimum of 8 million USD, it has been estimated that the most expensive team, Brazil, comes with a market value of 508.7 million. Players with the highest value include Lionel Messi, Cristiano Ronaldo and Neymar.
With such high value at stake, there is no better way to adhere to your personal mark of quality than by booking yourself at the Vila Kalango, Laphina Spa or any other luxurious hotel in the host cities recommended by Conde Nast Johansens.
