Brazil World Cup

The 2014 FIFA World Cup will be the 20th FIFA World Cup, scheduled to take place in Brazil from June 12 (when Brazil plays Croatia in the opening match) to July 13, 2014. It will be the second time that Brazil has hosted the competition, the previous being in 1950. Brazil was elected unchallenged as host nation in 2007 after the international football federation, FIFA, decreed that the tournament would be staged in South America for the first time since 1978 in Argentina, and the fifth time overall.
