The Brazilian Ambassador to Ghana H.E Irene Vida Gala has made a startling revelation of Ghanaian fans who have bought tickets meant for the disabled for the 2014 World Cup.
The Brazilian consulate have started issuing out visas to the numerous Ghanaian fans who intend to travel to Brazil to support the Black Stars in June’s finals.
One of the criterions for securing a Brazilian visa includes the presentation of a valid match ticket to serve as ample proof of the motive for making the trip.
The Brazilian ambassador has however revealed that some of the tickets presented by applicants are that of areas designated to the disabled even though her outfit nevertheless granted these applicants the visa.
“Some Ghanaian fans bought tickets of seats of disabled people,” she disclosed at the SWAG awards ceremony on Saturday.
“Of course they got the visas. One ticket, one visa.
“But I don’t know how they will get into the stadium.”
This situation means, even though the affected fans will be able to make the trip to Brazil, they will have serious difficulties in gaining access to the match venues.
Demand for a Brazilian visa has been in high demand with the World Cup less than a month away.
Many Ghanaian fans are determined to travel to Brazil not only for the football but also for the massively attractive recreational services offered in the South American country.
The very beautiful beaches, carnivals and very attractive ladies in Brazil shown on various advertisements, movies and the like have been a constant infectious attraction for anyone and the Ghanaian fans will not want to be left out.
Ghana will be making a third successive appearance at the finals this June.
The Black Stars are drawn in a tough group alongside Germany, Portugal and USA.
