RIO DE JANEIRO --- A poll published yesterday on
the wealth and race of fans who attended a World
Cup match in Brazil illustrated what any TV viewer
in the nation has seen: Those attending games are
overwhelmingly white and rich.
That s particularly striking in Brazil, with its highly
mixed population that has more blacks than any
RIO DE JANEIRO --- World Cup organisers
say two people were treated for injuries after
fights involving fans from Brazil, Colombia and
Uruguay at Maracana Stadium on Saturday.
Brazilian broadcaster Globo showed footage of
fans clashing in a stadium concourse after Colom-
bia beat Uruguay 2-0 in the Round of 16.
Organising committee spokesman Saint-Clair
Milesi said yesterday that "people can get overex-
cited and problems can happen."
Milesi says "our security will be looking at
those images to see if there was operational fail-
ure," and take the incidents into account for the
next game at the Maracana, a quarterfinal on
He adds that two reported injuries is about
the average for matches at this World Cup.

Brazil versus Chile match, 67 per cent of attendees
classified themselves as white and 90 per cent came
from Brazil s top two economic classes, which rep-

Similar trends have been seen at other Cup match-
es, though no polls were carried out previously.
The Datafolha poll was based on interviews with

and had a statistical margin of error of 4 percentage
"Sure, there are only whites in the stadium. It
comes down to money," said Ana Beatriz Ferreira,
a 27-year-old parking attendant in Rio de Janeiro,
who is black. "Nobody I know could find affordable
Face-value prices for the Brazil versus Chile match
officially ranged from $200 to $25 for Brazilians, the
cheapest tickets making up roughly 5 per cent of
those sold. They were only available for students,
senior citizens or poor people who participate in a
government welfare programme.
The prices are tough for ordinary Brazilians to
afford. The minimum wage in the country is $330
a month, just about what Ferreira said she earns.
In an emailed statement, Fifa said that during
group stage matches, it sold a total of 143,364 of the
cheapest tickets, which amounted to roughly 3,000
such tickets available per match.
Those quickly sold out, locking out the vast majority
of fans in soccer-mad Brazil.
Marcos Carvalho, an 18-year-old Brazilian fan who
was hanging out near the Estadio Nacional in Brasilia
before Brazil played Cameroon earlier this week, said
that he "didn t even try getting tickets, they were
"There was no way we could afford them," he
said. "We ll just watch the match at home, it s all
we can do. We are seeing everyone going to the sta-
dium, everyone happy, but we won t be going."
