2014 FIFA World Cup Brazil
From 12 June - 13 July 2014 Brazil will host the 2014 FIFA World Cup, one of the largest sporting events in the world.
With less than three years until kick off, the reality of the undertaking is becoming apparent. The event will take place across 12 host cities in a series of new and re-developed stadia, and it is estimated that between R$24 – R$33 billion will be needed to complete the multiple infrastructure projects required to successfully host the World Cup.
There remain enormous opportunities not only in terms of infrastructure development around airports, roads, rail and hotels, but also for security, event management, training and legacy planning among other areas.

This UKTI report provides an update on the considerable changes since the publication of UKTI’s 2009 report ‘It’s All to Play For’. It also reiterates the important message that the scale of Brazil’s undertaking for delivering a successful tournament is so large, and its political commitment so strong, that it should continue to be an attractive prospect for British companies for the foreseeable future.
The report highlights a range of infrastructure projects across Brazil as well as pointing towards the opportunities that exist for technology solutions within the stadia.
