i saw an article stated that the average tickets for the opening game is $1200 US each.
No...

Opening ceremonies aren't a big deal in World Cup. Ceremonies and other glitzy distractions in general in soccer aren't really paid attention to, it's all about the game.

If anything, traffic might be an issue. At game time or 10 minutes in, the stadium will be full

I am trying to watch the CBC live stream but there is only sound during the commercials. Anyone else getting this?

I'm on CBLT on Rogers and aside from the stupid plastic horns drowning the sound out it's fine.

Com'on, the stads are always full for the Opening ceremonies!
I think it's because of $$$!
It only looks like a few sections at very top are not full now.

$$ is probably a big thing for many in South Africa too. In US dollars for this match, field level middle are $450, field level corners are $300 and upper deck is $200.
That's a bit of a premium, as its the opening match. For most South Africans, this is about 3 months worth or wages. I don't think opening match tickets included the opening ceremony.

Germany really lit up the tourney. It's always a slow burn with the round 1 games, things should heat up by late this coming week.

A good site to check for if the game's worth the time (if you're at work and don't want spoilers) is worldcupgameratings.com as it just lets you know whether it's a bore draw or not, regardless of who's playing.

Hey, anyone get Mobi TV working in Canada, streaming the World Cup games? I don't have Rogers cable so can't get the Rogers on Demand app.

Hmm sort of overwhelms the waterfront tho....:confused:
