• FOOTBALL UNCERTAINTY CLOUDS 2014 BRAZIL PREPARATIONS

    0

    RIO DE JANEIRO: Just six months before 32 teams arrive for the World Cup in Brazil and a week before the draw, the giant nation still has work to do to prepare 12 venues worthy of the occasion. Wednesday’s fatal accident at the Sao Paulo Arena, scheduled to host the opening match on June 12 and five other games, have put back ongoing construction at the stadium. And it is not clear whether the stadium can now make FIFA’s December 31 deadline — though the local organizing committee insisted Thursday that despite the delay the stadium will still host World Cup action. Brazilian Sports Minister Aldo Rebelo insists “there will be a party atmosphere, not one of protest,” for the event running from June 12 to July 13.
