Report Claims Brazilian World Cup Stadium Was Structurally Damaged By Fire
Published February 17, 2014
CURITIBA PREPARATIONS: The AP reported local organizers in the southern Brazilian city of Curitiba insisted that they "have taken all measures requested by FIFA to guarantee its delayed stadium will be finished in time for the World Cup finals." FIFA gave an ultimatum to local organizers last month, saying that they "had until Tuesday to show work at the Arena da Baixada could be finished in time." Brazil Sports Minister Aldo Rebelo, in charge of the country's World Cup preparations, visited Curitiba last week and said that "everything would be done to try to guarantee the loan as soon as possible" (AP, 2/14).
