For the confederations cup the only stadium in danger of being out is Maracanã. only 39% of the refurbishment done in 2 years and they employed 5200 workers (holy ****!). Cariocas are too lazy.

I agree, my friend intoronto!

39% in Maracana? They must work really fast now!

This number was released in early march. According to the last measurement made now in april, after the progress of the installation of metallic structures, the works reached 45% and is expected to be 50% ready by the end of this month.

This Bezzi`s coloured version is much better than the original. Good job, Bezzi!

FIFA Fan Fest locations confirmed

When the next edition of the FIFA World Cup™ kicks off in Brazil in 2014, the excitement will not be limited to the stadiums hosting the matches. FIFA and the Local Organising Committee (LOC) have been working together with the twelve Brazilian Host Cities to plan the FIFA Fan Fest programme which will come to life in iconic locations throughout Brazil. One major milestone of the planning has been reached today with the twelve FIFA Fan Fest locations confirmed by the Host Cities.

The FIFA Fan Fest first became part of the official programme for the FIFA World Cup™ in Germany in 2006, following the huge success of unofficial public viewing events in Korea Republic during 2002’s edition of football’s flagship event. The huge success of the FIFA Fan Fest programme in Germany led to the concept being developed further for the 2010 FIFA World Cup™, when not only the South African Host Cities but also six international venues hosted an event which welcomed over six million football fans over 31 days.

The locations of the FIFA Fan Fest in the twelve 2014 Host Cities are as follows:

1. Belo Horizonte – Praca da Estacaoo;

2. Brasília – Esplanada dos Ministerios;

3. Cuiaba – Parque de Exposicoes;

4. Curitiba – Parque Barigui;

5. Fortaleza – Praia de Iracema (Aterrao);

6. Manaus – Memorial Encontro das Aguas;

7. Natal – Praia do Forte;

8. Porto Alegre – Praça Glenio Perez;

9. Recife – Marco Zero;

10. Rio de Janeiro – Praia de Copacabana;

11. Salvador – Jardim de Alah;

12. Sao Paulo – Vale do Anhagabau;

Oh, I see! apparently my numbers were out-dated. Still 44% is very little since the site have 5400 people working almost 20h per day.

45%! And will be 50% by the end of month. It's a good advance. The number of workers is compatible with the size of the stadium.

I agree, Danny.Btw, one of the construction company that was refurbishing Maracanã just left due to lack of money.

The same company is being accused of Money Laundering. and it's involved in the biggest corruption case right now in Brasil.

Oh, and it was the same company that built the Engenhão (Rio Stadium) that had to deal with a big structural problem and, of course, the cost of building Engenhão went 10x up during the works...

Quite sad.

The departure of this company of the consortium doesn't change anything in the construction of the stadium. Just leave this troll speaking alone.

And..............?

you don't live in rio so I thought you wouldn't care but I care about my money being used for corrupts SOBs like Rio's governor to eat in Paris with his corrupt friends.

Maracanã wont be ready for the CC unless they give the companies extra money.

Confederatons Cup schedule to be released despite uncertainties

(AP) -FIFA will announce the match schedule for the Confederations Cup on Wednesday despite uncertainties surrounding the tournament in Brazil next year.

The schedule will be released at an event in Rio de Janeiro, but it remains uncertain where all the matches will be played because FIFA is unsure if two venues in northeastern Brazil will be ready in time to host the warm-up tournament in little more than a year.

FIFA recently approved six host cities for the Confederations Cup but has also prepared match schedules with four and five cities "to adapt smoothly to the actual situation in due time.''

Last week, Brazilian officials said only 5 percent of all the World Cup projects have been completed and just eight of 51 infrastructure undertakings will be implemented in time for the Confederations Cup.

FIFA Secretary General Jerome Valcke will be in Brazil for the announcement, marking his first trip to the country since a recent spat with local government officials following his critical comments about preparations.

...

The Confederations Cup in Brazil is scheduled for June 15-30. The tournament is played among the champions of the sixth continental champions, in addition to the World Cup winner and host country.

Five teams have secured their spot for next year's competition - Asian champion Japan, CONCACAF Gold Cup winner Mexico, South American champion Uruguay, World Cup winner Spain and host Brazil. The Oceania champion will be decided on June 10, the European champion on July 1 and the Africa Cup of Nations winner in February 2013.

The tournament's draw is expected to take place in late November or in December, when the eight teams will be distributed into two groups of four

In this joint Cup. I am concerned about Neymar. His performance is surprising. I bought your shirt.
In the 2014 World Cup hope he can remain on the battlefield of the color.
