A blind spot at the World Cup Arena da Baixada in Curitiba, has left fans disappointed. One of the disappointed fans is Adamor Otto, 38, who bought a ticket to watch the last game of Spain on the World Cup. He paid R$ 180 (about U$D 70) for the ticket and discovered that the sector is poorly located. “I paid to see a corner kick,” he protested.
Otto had to look for another seat to watch the match. “I switched and stayed at another location on my own.”
The governing body of football said the problem of blind spots occur, besides the Arena da Baixada, at Arena Corinthians and at Beira-Rio Stadium – which were finished last and in the nick of time. But FIFA explained that they have a positioning plan, which includes 300 contingency tickets to reposition fans who bought tickets in places without wide visibility.
