These 75% that Curitiba have is not suitable for a World Cup. The percentages above refer to what each city needs to complete the project to adequate the stadium for the World Cup. It's the same situation of Mineirão, Maracanã and Castelão, which are also being renovated and started the counting from zero.

World soccer body FIFA has appointed Bahrain Football Association president Sheikh Salman bin Ibrahim bin Hamad Al Khalifa to its 2014 World Cup committee despite the Bahraini officials denial of the sentencing and torture of national team soccer players for their involvement in anti-government protests earlier this year.

Bahrain’s official Bahrain News Agency heralded the appointment as “adding to Sheikh Salman’s rich record of prestigious positions he has held at the Asian and international sport arenas, testifies to the global acclaim of the kingdom’s role in enhancing sport movement.”

The agency quoted Sheikh Salman as saying that his appointment would “enable him to reaffirm the capability of the kingdom’s cadres to hold such key international positions.”

The appointment comes as national soccer players are fighting in Bahrain courts charges brought against for peacefully demonstrating and despite the fact that other major sports institutions have steered clear of the Gulf island because of the brutal crackdown on anti-government protesters seeking greater political freedom, an end to discrimination against Shiite Muslims and more economic opportunity.

Sheikh Salman played an important role in the crackdown as head of a committee that identified 150 soccer players, athletes and sports executives who had participated in the demonstrations. They were either arrested or fired from their positions.

Among them were three national soccer team players, including brothers Alaa and Mohammed Hubail. Alaa last month recounted in an interview with The Associated Press how he and his brother were arrested, abused and humiliated during the government’s brutal suppression of the protests.

The arrests were part of a government sweep that targeted medics, government employees and activists, many of who said they were tortured while in detention.

Bahraini courts last week sentence 36 people, including 21 medics and two hand ball players, to prison terms of up to 15 years.

Sheikh Salman’s involvement in the crackdown has privately prompted questions within the Asian Football Confederation because he is a frontrunner to succeed disgraced Qatari national Mohammed Bin Hammam as the organization’s president. The AFC in July postponed initiating the process of electing a new president to give Mr. Bin Hammam time to appeal a world soccer body FIFA ban for life on involvement in football because of his alleged engagement in bribery. AFC officials suggest privately that electing Sheikh Salman would send the wrong signal.

Jeez, this would be like if the IOC had appointed Uday Hussein to one of its coordination committees! Are they putting hallucinogens in the bottled water in the Zurich HQ?

captain obvious to the rescue.

That's what I said. The stadium is 75% done, they only need to do the following 25%. So they have enough time to do this, while saying it have 0% misleads people into believing there's nothing done there and if there was nothing done then CTBA would already be out of the WC.

Some more recent pictures of the Corinthians stadium:

Brazil star Romario slams Fifa World Cup 2014 demands

Former Brazil football star Romario has said Fifa must not be allowed to dictate changes to Brazilian law ahead of the World Cup in 2014.

Romario - who is now a congressman - said laws that guarantee half-price tickets to students and pensioners should not be swept away.

The Brazilian congress is currently debating a bill that would meet Fifa's conditions for the tournament.

Romario, 45, led Brazil's attack when they won the World Cup in 1994.

The former star was speaking on a visit to Rio de Janeiro's Maracana stadium, which is being refurbished for the tournament.

"If Fifa is not put in its rightful place it will soon have more power than our president," he told journalists.

Romario said Fifa could bear the cost of maintaining discounted tickets for students and pensioners during the tournaments estimated at around $100m (£64m).

"Fifa could earn a little bit less so that the Brazilians can take part," he said.

Fifa says the money it makes from World Cup tournaments is reinvested in football.

Delays

Earlier Romario expressed himself more strongly on his Twitter account.

"Brazil needs to stop this business of becoming a slave of Fifa," he tweeted.

"The sovereignty of the country must be respected".

Romario also warned that infrastructure projects needed for the tournament, including airports and urban transport, were behind schedule.

"Brazil is certainly not going to stage the best World Cup in history as some have said," he warned.

"It is not going to be a World Cup for the Brazilian people".

This picture of Maracana breaks my heart.

Somehow I start to think it would be better to demolish all the stadium and start it over.

It would be quicker and Rio could have done something magical and new.

Meanwhile, the National Stadium in Brasília is getting shape and, IMHO, will be the most beautiful in Brazil for decades!

Sao Paulo to be confirmed as opening match host and Rio to be confirmed to final match host next thrusday.

All the fixture for the World Cup is already done and Brazil should play the first round in Sao Paulo, Brasilia and Fortaleza.

All the fixture of World Cup and Confederations Cup will be unveiled thursday. Also the logo for Confederations Cup will be unveiled, despite the fact even Bezzi is already using it as avatar here in GBForums.

It seems FIFA is not good on creating momentums for their announcement. All media know all that will be unveiled.

Sure Dannyel :lol:

But there are still things we don't know like the cities that will host the quarter-finals and the match for third place. Despite the leaked information, the event will still have a little excitement.

Let's wait Ancelmo Goes tomorrow's article on O Globo... Maybe he will publish the entire fixture for 2014 World Cup, and who knows, even for the 2022 World Cup.

The guy is always right!

FIFA and Sao Paulo Organizing Comittee already decided: the Corinthians stadium, during the World Cup, will be called "Estádio São Paulo".

Sorry, I need to laugh!!!

It will fit well the proposed colors: Black, White and Red. A nice tribute to the rival Sao Paulo FC.

kkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkk

Corinthians, always making me laugh!!!

FIFA World Cup tickets on sale from 2013

...

The sale of FIFA World Cup tickets will begin after the FIFA Confederations Cup 2013, probably towards the end of August 2013. Tickets for the Confederations Cup will go on general sale after the draw at the end of 2012. We made this decision in order to prevent confusion between the two events among fans.

...

The first sales phase will be a lottery in which fans can apply for tickets, which are then allocated via random draw. Everyone can take part and will have an equal chance of securing tickets. The majority of tickets will be sold through FIFA.com, the official FIFA World Cup website. Similarly to South Africa 2010, there will also be ticket outlets in Brazil for local fans who do not have access to the internet. Furthermore, we will be working with local organisations to ensure we are able to reach every fan.

I'm pretty happy with all choices.

Brasilia and its fantastic stadium will open the Confederations Cup.

Belo Horizonte and Fortaleza semis

Rio final

Sao Paulo will open the World Cup

Brazil plays in Brasilia and Fortaleza in the first round

Sao Paulo and Belo Horizonte semis

Rio final

The biggest stadiums will play major role in the World Cup. Fair.

Not sure about first round matches at 10 PM Brazil time. This will be really not seen by European audience and it seems it will be Brazil matches just after the soap opera in TV Globo... Didn't like it.

I wouldn't like to be the team E4... A match in Curitiba and few days later, another match in Manaus... What a trip!!!

Also for H4 playing in Cuiaba and Porto Alegre in first round.

Both will feel very different climates in less than an week.

The E4 team will face a 4,5 hours plane trip between match 2 and 3 in the first round... A bit unfair....
