i think you people totally miss the ppv aspect. the usa is such a powerful market because of disposable income. thats why the sponsors are willing to pay more and thats why ppv sells in north america but its free overseas. the number of people with disposable income in poorer parts of the world is tiny in comparison.
there is absolutely no chance in hell $250 for the world cup would sell 10 million nevermind 100's of millions. no fucking chance
at $20 yeah sure the #s would be huge but at $250 i doubt they could do 5 million. one of the biggest markets for a $250 ppv would be the USA. nobodys dropping that kind of coin on a soccer game in the middle of a sunday afternoon in the USA. people do not give enough fucks about soccer. the average salary in brazil is $700 per month. minimum wage is $300 per month. its one of the wealthier and biggest countries in south america. thats also a lot more than the majority of people make in asia
i think you have no clue of how big of a flop a $250 ppv for soccer would be. it would do relatively well in germany but thats about it. the rest of the world would be a huge flop
