Will luxuries, or lack thereof, translate onto the playing field of the 2006 World Cup in Germany? Beginning on June 9 in Munich, is expected to draw millions of soccer fans from around the world, a potential boon to the country's hospitality and retail sectors. Visitors will no doubt run the gamut from champagne-sipping aristocrats sleeping in five-star hotels and sitting in box seats, to the heartier spectators wearing paint on their faces and shelling out €35 for a spot behind the goalposts. Judging from the hotels pictured above, perhaps the same could be said for the players themselves. While the national teams of France and England will spend their evenings ensconced in, literally, castles, the footballers of Iran and the Ukraine will find themselves sleeping in less glamorous accommodations.
