"The football kingdom without tickets"
Protesters gather in the surroundings of the FIFA Fan Fest in Copacabana Beach in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil on June 12, 2014, just minutes before the FIFA World Cup kickoff. Brazil's ambivalence toward the World Cup was on full display as the country geared up for the game, the sea of green and yellow in some areas contrasting with the billowing smoke from burning garbage and clouds of tear gas that filled the air as military police and protesters clashed in the nation's financial hub.
