The 2014 FIFA World Cup will be the 20th FIFA World Cup, an international men’s football tournament that is scheduled to take place in Brazil from 12 June to 13 July 2014. It will be the second time that Brazil has hosted the competition, the previous being in 1950. Brazil was elected unchallenged as host nation in 2007 after the international football federation, FIFA, decreed that the tournament would be staged in South America for the first time since 1978 in Argentina, and the fifth time overall.

The national teams of 31 countries advanced through qualification competitions that began in June 2011 to participate with the host nation Brazil in the final tournament. A total of 64 matches are to be played in twelve cities across Brazil in either new or redeveloped stadiums, with the tournament beginning with a group stage. For the first time at a World Cup Finals, the matches will use goal-line technology.

With the host country, all world champion teams since the first World Cup in 1930 (UruguayItalyGermanyEnglandArgentinaFrance and Spain) have qualified for this competition. Spain is the defending champion, having defeated the Netherlands 1–0 in the 2010 World Cup final to win its first World title. The previous four World Cups staged in South America were all won by South American teams.

Host Selection

On 7 March 2003, FIFA announced that the tournament would be held in South America for the first time since 1978, in line with its then-active policy of rotating the right to host the World Cup among different confederations.  The decision meant that it would be the first time that two consecutive World Cups will be staged outside Europe.

On 3 June 2003, the South American Football Confederation CONMEBOL initially announced that Argentina, Brazil, and Colombia wanted to host the finals, but by March 2004, the CONMEBOL associations had unanimously voted to adopt Brazil as their sole candidate.

During the intervening months, Colombia decided that it would enter its own bid, and formally declared its candidacy in December 2006.  A week earlier Brazil had also formally announced its interest.

However, Colombia officially withdrew its bid in April 2007, leaving Brazil as the only host candidate.  On 30 October 2007 FIFA officially confirmed that Brazil would host the event.

Qualification – 2014 FIFA World Cup qualification

The allocation of places for the final tournament was decided on 3 March 2011, with the distribution of the 31 places determined through the qualification process unchanged from that of the previous tournament.  The qualification draw for the 2014 World Cup was held at the Marina da Glória in Rio de Janeiro on 30 July 2011.  As the host nation, Brazil automatically qualified for the tournament.

203 of the 208 FIFA national teams at the time participated in the qualification stages, which began on 15 June 2011 and concluded on 20 November 2013. 24 of the 32 eventual qualifiers were present at the previous tournament, with the only debutant being Bosnia and Herzegovina, which qualified for the first time as an independent nation.  The highest-ranked absentee in the FIFA World Rankings at the time of the draw for the tournament was Ukraine, while the OFC region will have no representation at a World Cup Finals for the first time since 2002.

The following 32 teams, shown with October 2013 rankings used for seeding in the draw, qualified for the final tournament.

Prize Money

The total prize money on offer for the tournament was confirmed by FIFA as US $576 million (including payments of US$70 million to domestic clubs), a 37 percent increase from the amount allocated in the 2010 tournament.  Before the tournament, each of the 32 entrants will receive US$1.5 million for preparation costs. Once at the tournament, the prize money will be distributed as follows:

As with the previous World Cup, FIFA will make payments to the domestic clubs of the players representing their national teams at the tournament. This will see a total of US$70 million paid to domestic clubs.

Venues

Eighteen locations were presented as potential World Cup host cities: BelémBelo HorizonteBrasíliaCampo GrandeCuiabáCuritibaFlorianópolisFortaleza,GoiâniaMaceióManausNatalPorto AlegreRecifeRio Branco, Rio de Janeiro, Salvador and São Paulo.

FIFA proposes that no more than one city may use two stadiums, and the number of host cities is limited between eight and ten. The proposal of Ricardo Teixeira, the then-Head of the Brazilian Football Confederation, to use twelve host cities in “the interest of the whole country” was however accepted by FIFA in December 2008.

The twelve host cities were announced on 31 May 2009, with Belém, Campo Grande, Florianópolis, Goiânia and Rio Branco being rejected; Maceió had already withdrawn in January 2009. The twelve selections – each the capital of its state – cover all the main regions of Brazil and create more evenly distributed hosting than the 1950 finals in Brazil provided, when matches were concentrated in the south-east and south.  As a result the tournament will require significant long-distance travel for teams.

A reported US$3.47 billion has been spent on stadium projects.  Five of the chosen host cities have brand new venues built specifically for the World Cup, while the Estádio Nacional Mané Garrincha in the capital Brasilia was demolished and rebuilt, and the remaining six are being extensively renovated.  The Estádio do Maracanã in Rio de Janeiro, which already holds the record attendance for a FIFA World Cup Finals match (199,854), is the largest of the stadiums and will stage the final. The CBF originally intended to host the opening match at São Paulo’s Estádio do Morumbi but it was dropped in 2010 and replaced by the Arena Corinthians after failing to provide financial guarantees for the required improvements.

The first new stadium, the Castelão, in Fortaleza, became operational in January 2013. According to Joe Leahy of theFinancial Times, the works in the Castelão, “could set a precedent for other sporting public works”, since the project “came in within budget and cheaper per seat” than the Maracanã stadium in Rio.  Six of the venues were used during the 2013 Confederations Cup.  Six further stadiums are however forecast to miss FIFA’s original 31 December 2013 deadline for completed works.  The completion of the new Arena Corinthians has been hindered by a fatal crane collapse in November 2013 that destroyed part of the stadium and killed two construction workers.

On 22 January 2014, FIFA general secretary Jerome Valcke visited the Arena da Baixada site in Curitiba and stated that the city may be dropped as a World Cup host city if sufficient progress in the renovation of the arena was not shown by 18 February.  On 18 February, FIFA confirmed that Curitiba would remain as a World Cup host, despite delays in construction of the stadium.

On 9 March 2014, the Arena da Amazônia, in Manaus, became the ninth World Cup stadium to host a football match, withRemo and Nacional coming to a 2-2 draw.  Arena das Dunas, in Natal, and Estádio Beira-Rio, in Porto Alegre also hosted soccer matches already, and are ready for the World Cup.
