4 3 In 2014, the biggest event in world football will return to its spiritual home. Sixty-four years after it first hosted a FIFA World Cup, Brazil will once again stage the showpiece event. With a record five world titles to its name and the distinction of being the only country to have played in all 19 previous editions of the tournament, Brazil is counting down the days until the participating nations and their fans arrive on its shores. Six of the 2014 FIFA World Cup Brazil stadiums have already been inaugurated and were used during the FIFA Confederations Cup 2013, namely those in Belo Horizonte, Brasília, Fortaleza, Recife, Rio de Janeiro and Salvador. Among their number is the legendary Maracanã in Rio, where the final will be played in Six other FIFA World Cup venues are being completed in Cuiabá, Curitiba, Manaus, Natal, Porto Alegre and Brazil s biggest city, São Paulo, with the latter s Arena de São Paulo set to stage the opening match involving the hosts on 12 June.

6 5 Welcome to Brazil! A quick guide to the twelve 2014 FIFA World Cup Brazil TM host cities and stadiums
7 MANAUS FORTALEZA NATAL RECIFE Host cities and stadiums key facts and figures SALVADOR CUIABÁ BRASÍLIA BELO HORIZONTE RIO DE JANEIRO SÃO PAULO CURITIBA PORTO ALEGRE Belo Horizonte Population 2,395,785 Among Brazil s first planned cities and regularly voted one of the Latin American metropolises with the best quality of life, Belo Horizonte sprung up in the shadow of the Serra do Curral and today is famed for its wide tree-lined avenues and architectural wonders such as the Pampulha complex and Liberty Square. It is the capital of the state of Minas Gerais, the second most populous in Brazil. Estádio Mineirão A historical venue in Brazilian football and home of multiple national champions Atlético Mineiro and Cruzeiro, the Estádio Mineirão underwent a complete refurbishment prior to hosting three fixtures at the FIFA Confederations Cup The venue is set to stage six more at the 2014 FIFA World Cup, including one semi-final. Sustainability principles were at the core of the modernisation project, including the capture and re-use of rainwater at the venue. Capacity 62,547
8 7 Brasília Population 2,648,532 Estádio Nacional As you would expect in a city at the vanguard of architecture and design, the Estádio Nacional will be one of the most imposing not to mention the second-largest venues at the 2014 FIFA World Cup Brazil. The stadium was the venue for the opening game of the FIFA Confederations Cup 2013 and will host seven fixtures at Brazil Capacity 70,064 Considered one of the country s most architecturally avant-garde cities, Brasília is home to some of Brazil s most distinctive structures, including the Metropolitan Cathedral, the Juscelino Kubitschek Bridge and the buildings of the National Congress. Many of the striking edifices in the new capital were designed by Oscar Niemeyer. Thanks to its unique architecture, Brasília is the only city in the world built in the 20 th century to have been declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Cuiabá Population 561,329 Cuiabá lies at a privileged focal point for tourists, in a part of Brazil where three of the country s most important characteristic ecosystems meet the Cerrado, the Pantanal wetlands and the Amazon. With nature featuring prominently, it is hardly surprising that the capital of Mato Grosso state has earned the nickname of the Green City. Arena Pantanal Purpose-built for Brazil 2014, the Arena Pantanal will host four games at the showpiece event. Given that the stadium borders the flora- and fauna-rich region that is the Pantanal, it is no surprise that sustainability was a central theme of the construction and maintenance of the new arena from its very conception. Capacity 42,968
9 Curitiba Population 1,776,761 Curitiba is the perfect example of what a city can become through managed and responsible development and economic growth. The Paraná state capital made sure it kept its urban spaces green, something reflected by the Tanguá and Barigüi parks and the city s Botanical Gardens. Other city attractions include the Ópera de Arame (known in English as the Wire Opera House because of its shell of glass and steel tubing) and the Oscar Niemeyer Museum, designed by the famous architect himself. Arena da Baixada Since its inauguration in June 1999, the Estádio Joaquim Américo Guimarães known as the Arena da Baixada has enjoyed the reputation of being one of Brazil s most modern and well-appointed stadiums. Following a series of renovations, the stadium will host four fixtures at Brazil Capacity 41,456 Fortaleza Population 2,500,194 With 34 kilometres of stunning beaches, Fortaleza is one of the main tourist destinations of Brazil s north-east region. As well as its blissful coastline, the city is also a major economic hub. Capital of Ceará state, the city has invested heavily in tourism infrastructure for decades, including new attractions such as the Centro Dragão do Mar de Arte e Cultura (Sea Dragon Art and Culture Centre) and Beach Park, Brazil s largest water park. Estádio Castelão Built in 1973 and officially known as the Estádio Governador Plácido Aderaldo Castelo, the Castelão has been entirely renovated, enabling it to comfortably host three matches at the FIFA Confederations Cup 2013 and another six at the 2014 FIFA World Cup. Capacity 64,846
10 9 Having the FIFA World Cup in Brazil, the land of football, will be a unique experience and a great way to celebrate the sport. I am looking forward to the kick-off. ZINÉDINE ZIDANE, FIFA Ballon d Or winner 1998, 2000, 2003 Manaus Population 1,861,838 Manaus, capital of Amazonas state, is the gateway to the biggest tropical habitat on the planet the Amazon rainforest. The confluence of the dark waters of the Rio Negro (literally, Black River) and the muddy waters of the Rio Solimões is one of the Amazon s most majestic spectacles and one of the city s biggest attractions. Arena Amazônia With a prime location in the heart of the largest continuous expanse of forest in the world, the Arena Amazônia, formerly known as the Estádio Vivaldão, will host four group-stage games during the 2014 FIFA World Cup. Capacity 42,374
11 I didn t have the chance to do so when I was a player, but now I m going to be able to experience all the excitement of a FIFA World Cup played in my own country, o País do Futebol (the country of football). BEBETO, 2014 FIFA World Cup Brazil ambassador Natal Population 817,590 Natal is proud to be known as the Cidade do Sol City of Sun, mostly thanks to the tropical climate that guarantees an average temperature of 28 C and almost 300 days of sunshine a year. Natal is also the closest South American city to Europe, which is seen as another advantage for the city s international tourism. Estádio das Dunas The Estádio das Dunas does not simply take its name from the surrounding sand dunes, which are one of the most impressive natural attractions in the Natal region, as it also refers to the bold undulating structure of the stadium, which mimics the flow of the dunes. Here, fans will be able to enjoy four fixtures at Brazil Capacity 42,086
12 11 Porto Alegre Population 1,416,714 Porto Alegre stands on the banks of the Lago Guaíba at a point where five rivers converge, together making the vast Lagoa dos Patos. From its subtropical climate meaning milder temperatures to its cultural traditions, the capital of Rio Grande do Sul is completely different to Brazil s other state capitals. It is a place which is now home to thousands of immigrants from Portugal, Italy, Germany and Poland. Estádio Beira-Rio The highlight of the transformation undergone by the Estádio Beira-Rio was the installation of an innovative metallic roof, which will protect the seats, ramps and access gates. The remodelled venue will stage five fixtures during Brazil Capacity 48,849 Recife Population 1,555,039 The beaches of the capital of Pernambuco state and the nearby cities are truly impressive, especially those at Boa Viagem and, some 70 kilometres from Recife, at Porto de Galinhas. Recife and the surrounding areas also offer visitors a wealth of history, such as Fort Orange on the island of Itamaracá, and the historic centre of Olinda, a UNESCO World Heritage site since Carnival is particularly different in these two cities, with two exciting, distinctive music styles known as frevo and maracatu. The Galo da Madrugada (Dawn Rooster) street parade is considered the biggest in the world, entering the record books in 1994 when it brought together no fewer than 1.5 million people. Arena Pernambuco The Arena Pernambuco, which hosted three games during the FIFA Confederations Cup 2013 and will stage another five during the FIFA World Cup, will be complemented by adjacent commercial projects aimed at driving the economic development of Grande Recife, in an area considered to be economically deprived. Capacity 44,248
13 Rio de Janeiro Population 6,390,290 The incomparable natural beauty, rich history and, most of all, the contagious joy of Cariocas people from Rio make this city one of the best-loved on the planet. Important local events include the New Year s Party on Copacabana Beach and carnival on Marquês de Sapucai. This vibrant metropolis is renowned for its picturepostcard scenes, such as Sugarloaf Mountain and Corcovado, atop which sits the Christ the Redeemer statue. Estádio do Maracanã Built for the 1950 FIFA World Cup Brazil, the Estádio do Maracanã provided the venue for that year s truly memorable deciding game between the host nation and Uruguay, one of the most dramatic chapters in the history of the competition. The venue will stage seven games at Brazil 2014 (just like the Estádio Nacional, in Brasília), including the final on 13 July. Capacity 76,804 Salvador Population 2,710,965 Arena Fonte Nova The newly built Arena Fonte Nova has been faithful to its original features but has gained a light metallic roof, as well as a panoramic restaurant and a football museum. The capital of Bahia state hosted three matches in 2013 and will be the venue for four group-stage matches as well as a round-of-16 game and a quarter-final at 2014 s showpiece event. Capacity 48,747 Brazil s first capital, Salvador has a rich African heritage dating back to the time of the slave trade, from the circles of capoeira (a combination of martial art and dance) to the rites of the Candomblé (an Afro-Brazilian religion). Salvador s privileged topography is one of its most appealing attributes, with a clear escarpment separating the Cidade Baixa and Cidade Alta (Lower Town and Upper Town), which are linked by the Elevador Lacerda lift. In terms of antiquity, pride of place goes to the Pelourinho, a historic centre famed for its churches and colourful colonial buildings that has been a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1985.
14 13 I saw the Maracanã being built and I experienced the emotion of a FIFA World Cup in Brazil, back in Now, a whole generation of young people will have the same opportunity. MÁRIO ZAGALLO, 2014 FIFA World Cup Brazil ambassador São Paulo Population 11,376,685 The financial and commercial centre of Brazil, São Paulo is the country s biggest city and capital of the state bearing the same name. São Paulo offers a plethora of cultural diversions and endless gastronomic variety with more than 12,000 restaurants. The Japanese district of Liberdade, Ibirapuera Park, the city s upmarket shopping centres and the charming city centre are all worth a visit. Arena de São Paulo Fans of São Paulo club Corinthians who have long yearned for their own stadium will finally get their wish in 2014 with the completion of the Arena de São Paulo ahead of the 2014 FIFA World Cup. The venue has been chosen to stage the opening game of Brazil 2014 as well as five other games, including a semi-final. Capacity 65,807

17 Facts about the FIFA World Cup TM The 2014 FIFA World Cup Brazil will be the 20 th time the event has been held. It first took place in the Uruguayan capital, Montevideo, in 1930 and included 13 countries from three continents. The decision to create the tournament had been taken just two years before in Amsterdam on 26 May The first FIFA World Cup in Brazil in 1950 was an unrivalled success, with nearly three times as many spectators as the FIFA World Cup in France in A total of 1,045,246 people watched the games in Brazil a record that would stand until England All six cities that hosted the FIFA World Cup in 1950 Belo Horizonte, Curitiba, Porto Alegre, Recife, Rio de Janeiro and São Paulo will do so again in 2014, but only Rio s Maracanã stadium will have been used for both events. In the 19 FIFA World Cups so far, six host countries have been crowned champions Uruguay (1930), Italy (1934), England (1966), Germany FR (1974), Argentina (1978) and France (1998), much to the delight of their home fans. Meanwhile, Brazil (1950) and Sweden (1958) both finished as runners-up. Chile (1962), Italy (1990) and Germany (2006) all finished in third place. Anational team with a foreign coach has never won the FIFA World Cup. The 18 winning coaches to date have all been in charge of their home nation. Of these, Italy s Vittorio Pozzo is the only coach to have won the trophy twice, guiding the Italians to the title in both 1934 and Only once in FIFA World Cup history has there been no European team in the final in 1930 when neighbours Argentina and Uruguay battled it out for glory in Montevideo. Since then, there has always been a European representative in the deciding game, including the last two which were both all-european affairs Italy against France in 2006, and Spain versus the Netherlands in In the 1950 FIFA World Cup in Brazil TM, the final was not held as a single game, but as four-way final round between Brazil, Uruguay, Spain and Sweden. France has left its own marks on the history of the FIFA World Cup. The French were involved in the first FIFA World Cup match, against Mexico in 1930; France s Lucien Laurent scored the first FIFA World Cup goal; Les Bleus took part in the first match to go to extra time, against Austria in 1934; France s Laurent Blanc scored the competition s first golden goal in
18 17 The FIFA World Cup will leave a legacy, and it s not just the stadiums that will be left for future generations. The biggest legacy will be for young people. For the first time in many of their lives, they ll be able to witness up close an event of this magnitude featuring so many top players. JOSÉ ROBERTO GUIMARÃES, three-time Olympic-winning volleyball coach 1998; and Les Bleus were also in the first game to be decided on penalties, against Germany FR in the semi-finals of Spain The 1998 FIFA World Cup TM in France also broke new ground as it featured 32 countries for the first time. Chosen to host the final of Brazil 2014, the Maracanã will be only the second stadium to have staged the final twice together with Mexico s Estádio Azteca. Brazil were involved in the three FIFA World Cup finals with the biggest winning margin, taking the trophy in two of them. In 1958, they defeated Sweden 5-2 before beating Italy 4-1 in 1970 at the Estádio Azteca. However, in 1998, A Selecão were on the flipside of the coin when they fell to a 3-0 defeat to a Zinédine Zidaneinspired France. France 1998 holds the record for the most goals scored in a single tournament with 171 goals in 64 games. But in terms of averages, Switzerland 1954 still leads the way with 140 goals in just 26 matches an impressive average of 5.38 per game. To this day, 76 national sides have taken part in at least one FIFA World Cup. Brazil is the only country to have been present at every edition, followed by Germany and Italy both of whom have taken part in 17 out of a possible 19 final tournaments. The Brazilian threebanded armadillo belongs to one of only two species with the ability to roll up into an almost impenetrable ball. Fifteen goals across three FIFA World Cups make Ronaldo the top scorer in the competition s history. Still active, Miroslav Klose has hit the back of the net 14 times, equalling the number scored by German compatriot Gerd Müller.
19 CORPORATE SOCIAL RESPONSIBILITY The FIFA World Cup is the biggest single-sport event in the world and that it has an impact on society and the environment is indisputable. Staging such a world-class event requires careful consideration of all aspects to ensure a balanced approach and sustainable outcome. FIFA and the 2014 FIFA World Cup Local Organising Committee Brazil (LOC) take this responsibility very seriously and are committed to delivering a sustainable event in Brazil in In defining a clear, ambitious yet realistic focus for the sustainability strategy of the 2014 FIFA World Cup Brazil, FIFA and the LOC used internationally recognised guidelines for social responsibility such as ISO and the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI), drew on experiences of social and environmental programmes from past FIFA World Cups and considered objectives developed by the Brazilian government. The resulting strategy has seven key areas and multiple activities for implementation in the leadup to and during the competition. Most of these large and small activities will be implemented in Brazil in collaboration with stakeholders from public and private sectors as well as civil society. CAPACITY DEVELOPMENT FIFA and the LOC will organise workshops on sustainable management for stadium managers and training modules to enhance the future employment opportunities of volunteers. CLIMATE CHANGE FIFA and the LOC will estimate the carbon footprint of the tournament and develop measures to avoid, reduce and offset its emissions. ANTI-DISCRIMINATION AND FAIR PLAY FIFA and the LOC will raise awareness of discrimination and fair play during the matches as part of FIFA s ongoing efforts to fight discrimination and promote fair play.
20 19 COMMUNITY SUPPORT Numerous local organisations in Brazil use football to tackle social challenges. FIFA and the LOC will support such organisations with funding, equipment and know-how through FIFA s wellestablished Football for Hope initiative. Responsibility for coordinating sustainability initiatives lies with FIFA s Corporate Social Responsibility Department. Since its foundation in 2005, the department has been developing programmes and collaborating with internal and external stakeholders to maximise the positive and minimise the negative impact of FIFA s activities on society and the environment.

21 FOOTBALL FOR HEALTH Besides developing programmes to protect players health and ensuring that the FIFA Anti-Doping Regulations are respected, the FIFA Medical Assessment and Research Centre (F-MARC) is using the educational power of football to promote a healthy lifestyle and improve public health. By moving from medicine for football to football for health, FIFA is building a better future. 11 FOR HEALTH A FOOTBALL-BASED HEALTH EDUCATION INITIATIVE FIFA 11 for Health is a unique initiative in which the most prominent players leave aside rivalry and play as one team to teach children how to live a healthy life and avoid major health threats such as the big three (malaria, tuberculosis, HIV) and the unhealthy trio (unhealthy food, high-calorie drinks, physical inactivity) that leads to obesity, diabetes and cardiovascular diseases. The programme is a series of football-based sessions aimed at encouraging physical activity while educating children about healthy behaviour. It has a solid scientific background and was developed based on an analysis of risk factors by the World Health Organization (WHO). It consists of 11 simple messages to reduce communicable and non-communicable diseases, all supported by prominent footballers such as Cristiano Ronaldo, Lionel Messi, Didier Drogba and Radamel Falcao. Through football I have been able to understand the importance of promoting a healthy life, and particularly a balanced diet. As a role model for many children around the world, I m committed to conveying this fundamental message, commented Radamel Falcao. The programme, which started in Africa in 2009 as a legacy of the FIFA World Cup in South Africa, is now spreading its positive message around the globe and a pilot project will be launched in Brazil in 2013.
22 A COMPLETE WARM-UP TO PREVENT INJURIES The FIFA 11+ injury prevention programme, developed, tested and promoted by F-MARC, is a simple, time-efficient warm-up programme for amateur players. The programme consists of three parts to be completed in 20 minutes, ideally before each training session. Scientific evidence has shown that overall injuries decreased by a third and serious injuries by half in teams using the FIFA 11+. Moreover, the more regularly the programme was completed, the fewer injuries were sustained.
