After the title of Libertadores, Fluminense fans will have to start organizing their trip to watch the team in the Club World Cup. The competition organized by FIFA will be held in Saudi Arabia, between December 12th and 22nd. The information below does not take into account food and transportation costs already on site.
The city of Jeddah, in Saudi Arabia, will host the first game of the Fluminense in the competition. And anyone who wants to be present will have to spend a lot of money on air tickets. Currently, the cheapest round trip price is R$ 9,987 and the most expensive is around R$60 thousand. There are several other flight options that are between the two prices.
According to the Skyscanner website, the cheapest hotels cost around R$ 150 the daily. If the fan wants to stay for the entire duration of the World Cup, the fan will spend something close to R$1,500 just on the hotel.
There is also the option of staying closer to the stadium, which increases the value even further. Daily rates can increase to something around R$500which would total R$5,000 for accommodation alone.
Tickets are the least of the problems. For the semi-final, which will be at the King Abdullah International Stadium, the price for category 3 is 60 Saudi Riyal (about R$79at the current rate), for category 2 it is 125 Riyal (R$ 164) and category 1 costs 175 Riyal (around R$ 230).
