Companies can now secure tickets and hospitality packages to the Fifa Confederations Cup 2013 and 2014 Fifa World Cup in Brazil.

The FIFA Confederations Cup 2013 kicks off in Brasilia on 15 June, pitting hosts Brazil against Asian champions Japan.

Jaime Byrom, executive chairman of Match Hospitality, said: "Considering the overwhelming interest for the 2014 Fifa World Cup and the record demand on the first day of the ticket sales for the FIFA Confederations Cup 2013, we anticipate that demand for hospitality will continue to be very high.

"Corporate customers and fans who want to be absolutely sure they are there to witness the magic, the vibrancy and the incredible feeling that comes from these competitions are well advised to secure their ticket-inclusive hospitality packages today via the official Hospitality Programme."

The Fifa Hospitality Programme offers clients premium tickets bundled with a wide range of services such as private suites and lounges and marquee tents, gourmet catering, preferential parking, entertainment and gifts.

The build-up to the Fifa Confederations Cup Brazil 2013 began in earnest on 1 December 2012, when the draw for the group phase took place in Sao Paulo. Hosts Brazil line up in Group A with Japan, Mexico and Italy, while Spain, Uruguay and Tahiti will be joined in Group B by the champions of Africa, whose identity will be revealed after next February’s CAF Africa Cup of Nations final.

The qualifying stages for the 2014 Fifa World Cup are in full swing and will be completed in November 2013, with the final draw scheduled to take place in December 2013. The Final Competition of the 2014 Fifa World Cup will be contested from 12 June to 13 July 2014.
