     The German Rail Pass
This looks like a good choice for fans coming to Europe for the World Cup from all corners of the globe - except from Europe itself (as this pass is not available to EU residents). 

One price to ride the entire network
For a one-off price, a German Rail Pass is valid for rail travel on any of 4 to 10 days within a given month (
more details from Rail Europe).

The days don't have to be consecutive, so you just pick and choose the days you want.

Youth pass
Good news if you're under 26, you still count as a "youth" on German Rail.  That means you can get a 7-day pass for just $202! 

Youthpass details on the Rail Europe website

All the way to the final for under $30 per match!
If you're no longer under 26 but travelling with someone else of such advanced years, you can also get a special deal.

German Rail Twin Pass
There is a special 'Twin' rate for two adults travelling together.  Travel together to 3 group matches, and four games at the knock-out stage, i.e. all the way to the final, and the twin pass will cost you just $414, i.e. under $30 each per person per game - can't say fairer than that!.

Children half price - Infants free
Children aged 6-11 travel half price, while infants under 6 are free.
