The World Cup Comes to Mallorca

The World Cup trophy was in Palma de Mallorca yesterday thanks to FIFA's decision

The World Cup trophy was in Palma de Mallorca yesterday thanks to FIFA's decision to make the present trophy holders qualify for the next competition. Spain are of course the holders and their next
qualifying match against Belarus will be held in Palma on October 11th and the trophy (OK, it was only a replica) was on display in the town hall to help publicise the match.

A win against this small landlocked state will give La Roja the three points they need to ensure a trip to Brazil next year, so they'll be all out to give a fine example of tiki taka football

The match kicks off at 22.00 on the Friday evening and tickets are priced at an economical €20 to €50 to ensure a big crowd. The council owned Iberostar stadium where Real Mallorca play can hold
23,000 spectators, and for the 'Mundial' match 75% of the tickets will be priced at €35 or less!

So, if you would like to see the best team in the world (official) in action, with players like Silva, Iniesto and Fabregas on the field, you can buy tickets from Ticketmaster online.
