2014 World Cup and 2016 Summer Olympic Games reports
On 30th June 2011 the UKTI Global Sports Projects Team launched two major reports on Brazil’s progress to host two mega sporting events within the next six years:
Game on - Progress in Brazil’s preparations for the 2014 FIFA World Cup
Brazil was awarded the right to host the 2014 FIFA World Cup back in October 2007, 3½ years on and the reality of the undertaking is becoming apparent. This report provides an update on the considerable changes since the publication of UKTI’s 2009 report ‘It’s All to Play For’, but 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.

Brazil’s moment to shine - Opportunities for UK business in the Rio 2016 Olympic & Paralympic Games
UKTI appointed an industry expert to undertake a four month assignment to research opportunities in sports and infrastructure for the UK construction industry arising in Rio de Janeiro, directly or indirectly, from hosting the 2016 Olympic Games. The finding of this research, and outlined in this report, identifies opportunities relevant for all areas of the construction industry, including architecture, engineering, product supply and construction.
