FIFA says Brazil stadiums will be ready for World Cup, because alternative is unthinkable

Hey, how’re things going with Brazil’s $3.3 billion in death-plagued World Cup stadium projects, with the opening game just seven weeks away? Very, very poorly, though World Cup officials are still putting up a brave front:

“There is not a single minute we can waste because there is still a lot of work to do to,” [FIFA Secretary General Jerome] Valcke said after checking the construction work at the Itaquerao. “We are running against time. But, yes, the stadium will host the opening game and, yes, we will organize the opening game and all the other games in this stadium.”

Valcke also noted “potential issues” with two other stadiums in Curitiba and Porto Alegre, but insists that everything will be fine in time for the opening, because, well, it has to be? And there’s no way any more workers are going to fall to their deaths and delay construction, because that already just happened last month, and anyway, death always comes in sevens.

  1. If you think Brazil is a bad, the FIFA fools awarded Qatar and Russia the next two World Cups. Qatar has already changed their winning proposal.

  2. Just keeps saying everything is fine and it will be, that is totally how it works, right?
