Hotels are reserved three to four years in advance of World Cup for delegates, sponsors, and sports/media representatives. These participants attend in an official capacity and stay the entire thirty days. This coupled with the heavy demand for regular international travel has created a major shortage of accommodations.
Accommodations will be extremely limited and many host cities will not have sufficient accommodations and support systems to handle the masses of fans that will be coming. Do not be left behind! Reserve early to insure that your accommodations are available in the type of hotel that you require.
