2014 Fifa World Cup - The 12 Stadiums in Brazil

2014 Fifa World Cup – The 12 Stadiums in Brazil

According to Fifa, 3 out of the 12 stadiums will be ready at the very last minute. 5 of them are brand new stadiums, the rest are refurbished and upgraded from existing stadiums. Like all major events, there are scandals such as cost over run, construction delays, corruption and more. Whatever it may be, there is no point crying over spill milk, better new stadiums for the youth over while elephant projects that is of no use in the future.

I believe the most iconic stadium will be the Beijing Bird’s nest, for this event, I think the Arena Corinthians is not pretty cool too. As for which is my favorite team? I am not a football fan, but it would be great to see a country that never win the world cup crown as the new winner.
