Seventeen cities showed interest in being chosen as World Cup host cities: São Paulo, Rio de Janeiro, Belo Horizonte, Porto Alegre, Brasília, Belém, Campo Grande, Cuiabá, Curitiba, Florianópolis, Fortaleza, Goiânia, Manaus, Natal, Recife/Olinda (a stadium will be shared by both cities), Rio Branco and Salvador. Maceió withdrew in January 2009.
According to current FIFA practice, no more than one city may use two stadia, and the number of host cities is limited between eight and ten. The Brazilian Confederation already requested permission to assign twelve cities hosting World Cup Finals. On 26 December 2008, FIFA gave the green light to the 12-city plan.
he Brazilian Football Confederation (CBF) estimates that the cost of construction and remodeling of stadiums alone will be over $1.1 billion US, or some £550 million. In addition to the stadium upgrades and renovations, there will be millions more spent on basic infrastructure needs to get the country ready. All of this will be a boom for foreign investment in the country and make it more attractive for those who wish to buy their own home in Brazil.
When informed of the decision to host the tournament, CBF President Ricardo Teixeira said We are a civilized nation, a nation that is going through an excellent phase, and we have got everything prepared to receive adequately the honor to organize an excellent World Cup. Teixeira was on hand at FIFA's headquarters in Zurich, Switzerland when the announcement was made.
Over the next few years we will have a consistent influx of investments. The 2014 World Cup will enable Brazil to have a modern infrastructure, Teixeira said. In social terms will be very beneficial. Our objective is to make Brazil become more visible in global arenas, he added. The World Cup goes far beyond a mere sporting event. It's going to be an interesting tool to promote social transformation.
In September 2008, Brazil's Transportation Ministry announced a high-speed train (TAV RJ-SP) project for the world cup connecting Campinas, São Paulo and Rio de Janeiro. This would cost US$11 billion. The technology will most likely be provided by companies from France, Japan, South Korea or Germany which will form consortiums with Brazilian engineering firms, and he mentioned two companies, Alstom SA of France and Siemens AG from Germany. The project will be put out to bid in March and construction should begin by early 2010 or sooner.
On August 31, 2009 the state airport management agency Infraero unveiled a BRL5.3 billion (USD2.8 billion; EUR2.0 billion) investiment plan to upgrade airports of 10 of the venue cities, increasing their capacity and comfort for the hundreds of thousands of tourists expected for the Cup. Natal and Salvador are excluded because their upgrade works have been recently completed. A significant amount (55,3%) of the money will be spent overhauling the airports of São Paulo and Rio de Janeiro. The investment figure covers works to be carried out up to 2014.
The announcement by Infraero came in reply to criticism made by the Brazilian General Aviation Association, a grouping of private aircraft owners, that Brazil's airports currently could not cope with the World Cup inflow. The vice-president of the association, Adalberto Febeliano, told reporters more than 500,000 football fans were expected, with each one taking between six and 14 flights during the tournament to get to the games in various cities.
The majority of Brazil's airports were built before the end of World War II, and several were at saturation point in terms of passengers, the association said. It added that it should be possible to renovate the facilities within three or four years if the political will existed. Infraero said in a statement: In the race against time, Infraero is making sure that the 67 airports in its network are in perfect condition and can welcome in comfort and security passengers in Brazil and from abroad.
