2014 FIFA World Cup venues

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search

Twelve venues (seven new and five renovated) in twelve Brazilian cities were selected for the 2014 FIFA World Cup. The cities also house the 32 teams and fan-zones for spectators without tickets for the stations. Around 3 million tickets were put on sale of which most were sold in a day. Eighteen locations were presented as potential host cities with the twelve successful host city candidates being announced on 31 May 2009: Belém, Campo Grande, Florianópolis, Goiânia and Rio Branco were rejected, while Maceió had already withdrawn in January 2009.[1][2]

FIFA proposes that no more than one city may use two stadiums, and the number of host cities is limited between eight and ten. However, FIFA subsequently accepted the Brazilian Football Confederation's suggestion to use twelve host cities in "the interest of the whole country".[3] The twelve selections – each the capital of its state – cover all the main regions of Brazil and create more evenly distributed hosting than the 1950 finals in Brazil provided, when matches were concentrated in the south-east and south.[4] Consequently, the tournament will require significant long-distance travel for teams.[5] Statistics show that nearly 10 million passengers used around 20 Brazilian airports in 31 days of the football World Cup.[6]

FIFA Fan Fests[edit]

Fan fest in Brasilia, Brazil vs. Croatia

For a third consecutive World Cup tournament, FIFA announced that they would be holding FIFA Fan Fests in each of the twelve host cities. Prominent examples are the Copacabana Beach in Rio de Janeiro, which already held a Fan Fest in 2010, São Paulo's Vale do Anhangabaú and Brasília's Esplanada dos Ministérios, with the Congress in the background.[10][11] The official "kick-off event" for the 2014 Fan Fest is set to take place on Iracema Beach, in Fortaleza, on Sunday, July 8, 2014, according to information on FIFA's official website.[12]
