Going back to the logo, I'm not sure if you noticed this similarity before :blink:

brasil-2014-logo-mundial.jpg = FIBA_logo_s.jpg

I believe it's been brought up somewhere here in this thread. I have to say the hands metaphor works far better for the basketball world championship than the World Cup but hey, who am I to disagree with such big names in the design world like Paulo Coelho and Gisele Bündchen?

FIFA officials visit Brazil to discuss 2014 World Cup preparations

By The Associated Press (CP)

SAO PAULO — FIFA officials are concluding a week in Brazil to discuss preparations for the 2014 World Cup.

FIFA secretary general Jerome Valcke has met with local organizers and government officials to get updates on the country's arrangements ahead of soccer's biggest showcase.

On the final day of his visit Friday, Valcke is also expected to visit several areas of Rio de Janeiro to choose a venue for the World Cup draw and find a location for the tournament's media centre.

There was no official word on whether Valcke reviewed Sao Paulo's latest stadium proposal. Corinthians has announced it will build a new arena for the tournament but the project has not been officially unveiled to FIFA. It is the only host city without a venue.

I agree. But considering the age of the stadium and the reform proposed, still a great venue for a (second) world cup final, don't you think?

The mayor of Sao Paulo has just started a survey/study for a possible upgrading of the Pacaembu Stadium, as an alternative for hosting games if Corinthians FC Stadium can´t be built in time or be adquate for as opening game :

That is to say... Sao Paulo still has not a confirmed venue....
