The FIFA World Cup 2014 is going to be held in Brazil. This is pressure which the five time world cup winners will hopefully looking forward to playing in front of home crowds trying to assure them that this time they will not let the cup go away.
However this host nation has been reported as being quite behind schedule in its preparations of hosting the prestigious event, this has been confirmed by FIFA secretary general (Jerome Valcke). Jerome has gone further and expressed concern at the snail speed progress that is being shown by Brazil in playing host of the 2014 mega event.
In places such as Sao Paulo, the lack of progress has been seen as being quite obvious, and this is where a new stadium is being constructed. This stadium was being planned to be used in the 2014 world cup is being seen as its not going to be completed to appoint where its ready for use by the year 2013.
As it was originally planned, this stadium was scheduled to be up in due time in order to be ready to host the Confederation Cup that is going to be held in the year 2013, making this stadium undergo a rehearsal for the bigger anticipated to be held in the year 2014.
In other places where tardiness has been witnessed includes the building of airports as well as transport links. Brazil has ben registered as a country that lacks enough stadiums, airports as well as a national transportation system that would make the stadiums accessible to fans. There were some (astronomy) big investments for World Cup 2014 in Brazil. Everybody hopes everything will be done before.
Brazil hosted the FIFA World Cup way back in the year 1950. And as of now Brazils stands as the most successful country to have a team that has won the event a record five times. However, Brazil leaves little to be desired ever since they made the bid (successful) to host the 2014 world cup event.
Building stadiums was what has proven to be a challenge for Brazil, And the FIFA secretary general Valcke, emphasized that the Sao Paulo stadium would unlikely be used at all during the Brazil FIFA World Cup 2014 for it’s not up to the required standards.
Valcke made his comments while during a visit to Moscow, Russia as he was addressing the Russian officials who are the organizing committee of the 2018 World Cup. Russia was recently awarded a successful bid to host the 2018 event and also the FIFA secretary general advised them to be quite ready having put everything in place at-least two years ahead of the event.
Russia was requested to build and renovate almost every stadium that is available in the country. The chief executive of Russia’s world cup organizing committee (Alexei Sorokin) was very optimistic that everything will be up and running by the year 2016 alongside the requirements of FIFA.
The Brazilian country is trying its best to put in place everything it needs in order to play host to a successful world cup event, The Brazilian national football players are also gearing up to the event where they want the cup to remain home!
