FIFA Secretary General Valcke, IOC President Bach To Travel To Brazil Next Week
Published January 21, 2014
FIFA Secretary General Jerome Valcke "is set to crisscross Brazil again to view stadia that are behind schedule" with the opening of the World Cup less than five months away, according to the AP. IOC President Thomas Bach "is also in the country next week" meeting with President Dilma Rousseff and organizers of the "sputtering" 2016 Rio de Janeiro Olympics. Valcke and Bach "have similar concerns." Both mega-events face delays. There is "increased public scrutiny over the billions in public money being spent and, in the case of the World Cup, time is short" (AP, 1/20).
