2014 FIFA World Cup
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The 2014 FIFA World Cup is the 20th
FIFA World Cup, a tournament for the
men's football world championship, that is
currently taking place in Brazil.
It began on 12 June, with a group stage,
and is scheduled to conclude on 13 July
with the nal.
[1]
It is the second time that
Brazil has hosted the competition, the rst
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 rst time
since 1978 in Argentina, and the fth time
overall.
The national teams of 31 countries
advanced through qualication
competitions that began in June 2011 to
participate with the host nation Brazil in
the nal tournament. A total of 64 matches
are being played in 12 cities across Brazil
in either new or redeveloped stadiums. For
the rst time at a World Cup nals, match
ocials are using goal-line technology, as
well as vanishing foam for free kicks.
[2]
With the host country, all world champion
teams since the rst World Cup in 1930:
Argentina, England, France, Germany
(who won three times as West Germany),
Italy, Spain and Uruguay, have qualied for
this competition. Spain is the defending
champion, having defeated the
Netherlands 10 in the 2010 nal to win its rst World Cup. All previous four
World Cup tournaments staged in South America were won by South American
teams.

Host selection
In March 2003, FIFA announced that the tournament would be held in South
America for the rst time since 1978, in line with its then-active policy of rotating
the right to host the World Cup among dierent confederations.
[4][5]
The decision
meant that it would be the rst time that two consecutive World Cups were staged
outside Europe. Only Brazil and Colombia formally declared their candidacy but,
after the withdrawal of the latter from the process,
[6]
Brazil was ocially elected
as host nation unopposed on 30 October 2007.
[7]
Participating teams and ocials
Qualication
Following qualication matches between June 2011 and November 2013, the
following 32 teams shown with their nal pre-tournament FIFA World
Rankings
[8]
qualied for the nal tournament. This marks the return of Croatia,
Ecuador, Costa Rica and Iran after they missed the 2010 edition. Colombia
qualied for the World Cup after 16 years of absence. Bosnia and Herzegovina is
the only team with no previous World Cup Finals experience.
[9][nb 2]
Only three
top-25 ranked teams did not qualify for the tournament: Ukraine (16), Denmark
(23) and Slovenia (25).
[8]
Paraguay failed to qualify for the nals for the rst time since 1994. Further 6
teams, who participated at the 2010 FIFA World Cup, also failed to qualify: South
Africa, North Korea, Slovakia, Slovenia, Serbia, Denmark and New Zealand. It is
also the rst time since 2002 that no OFC team will be among the nalists as New

Final draw
The 32 participating teams were to be drawn into the eight groups of the group
stage. In preparation for this, the teams were organised into four pots with the
seven highest-ranked teams joining host nation Brazil in the seeded pot.
[10]
As
with the previous tournaments, FIFA aimed to create groups which maximised
geographic separation and therefore the unseeded teams were arranged into pots
based on geographic considerations.
[11][12]
The draw took place on 6 December
2013 at the Costa do Sauipe resort in Bahia, during which the teams were drawn
by various past World Cup-winning players.
[13][14]
Under the draw procedure, one
randomly drawn team was rstly relocated from Pot 4 to Pot 2 to create four equal
pots of eight teams.
[11]
Squads
As with the 2010 tournament, each team's squad consists of 23 players (three of
whom must be goalkeepers). Each participating national association had to
conrm their nal 23-player squad no later than 10 days before the start of the
tournament.
[15]
Teams were permitted to make late replacements in the event of
serious injury, at any time up to 24 hours before their rst game.
[15]
During a
match, all remaining squad members not named in the starting team are available
to be one of the three permitted substitutions (provided the player is not serving a
suspension).
[15]
Ocials
In March 2013, FIFA published a list of 52 prospective referees, each paired with
two assistant referees, from all six football confederations for the tournament. On
14 January 2014, the FIFA Referees Committee appointed 25 referee trios and
eight support duos representing 43 dierent countries for the tournament.
[16][17]
Venues
Twelve venues (seven new and ve renovated) in twelve cities have been selected
for the tournament. The venues cover all the main regions of Brazil and create
more evenly distributed hosting than the 1950 nals in Brazil.
[18]
Consequently,

the tournament will require long-distance travel for teams.
[19]
During the World
Cup, Brazilian cities will also be home to the participating teams at 32 separate
base camps,
[20]
as well as staging ocial fan fests where supporters can view the
games.

Team base camps
The base camps are used by 32 national squads to stay and train before and
during the World Cup tournament. On 31 January 2014, FIFA announced the base
camps for each participating team,
[20]
having earlier circulated a brochure of 84
prospective locations.

FIFA Fan Fests
For a third consecutive World Cup tournament, FIFA are staging FIFA Fan Fests in
each of the twelve host cities throughout the competition. Prominent examples are
the Copacabana Beach in Rio de Janeiro, which already held a Fan Fest in 2010,
So Paulo's Vale do Anhangaba and Braslia's Esplanada dos Ministrios, with the
Congress in the background.
[24][25]
The rst ocial event took place on Iracema
Beach, in Fortaleza, on 8 June 2014.
[26]
Innovations
Technologies
New technologies that are being introduced to World Cup football for the rst time
include goal-line technology, vanishing foam, and improved football production
technology.
For the rst time at a World Cup Finals, the ocials are being assisted by goal-line
technology. The previous World Cup was a catalyst for the decision to adopt
technology after England were denied a goal in their round of 16 match against
Germany.
[27]
Following the mistake in this game, FIFA President Sepp Blatter said
"it would be a nonsense not to reopen the le on goal-line technology"
[28]
and in
2012 the IFAB approved its usage.
[29]
This is the fourth FIFA competition to use
the technology after successful trials at 2012 Club World Cup, 2013 Club World
Cup and 2013 Confederations Cup. The German company GoalControl was
selected as the tournament's ocial goal-line technology provider in October
2013.
[30]
Its rst use was in the FranceHonduras group game where the
Honduran goalkeeper was found to have scored an own goal.
[31]
Following successful trials,
[nb 4]
FIFA approved the use of vanishing foam by the
referees for the rst time at a World Cup Finals. The water-based spray, which
disappears within minutes of application, can be used to mark a ten-yard line for
the defending team during a free kick and also to draw where the ball is to be
placed for a free kick.
[32]
The Brazuca is the ocial match ball of the 2014 FIFA World Cup.
[33][34][35]
It is
made by the company Adidas, a FIFA Partner and FIFA World Cup Ocial Match
Ball supplier since 1970.
[33][34][35]
Adidas created a new design of ball after
criticisms of the Adidas Jabulani used in the previous World Cup. The number of
panels was reduced to six, with the panels being thermally bonded. This created a
ball with increased consistency and aerodynamics compared to its predecessor.
Furthermore Adidas underwent an extensive testing process lasting more than two

Countries participating in the 2014 FIFA World Cup
years to produce a ball that would meet the approval of football professionals. The
Brazuca was manufactured by Forward Sports of Sialkot, Pakistan, for Adidas.
[36][37]
Cooling breaks
Because of the relatively high ambient temperatures in Brazil, particularly at the
northern venues, "cooling breaks" for the players were introduced.
[38]
Breaks can
take place after the 30th minute of the rst and second half of games at the
referee's discretion if the Wet Bulb Globe Temperature exceeds 32 C (90 F).
Anti-doping
In 2014, the biological passport is introduced in the FIFA World Cup; blood and
urine samples from all players before the competition and from two players per
team and per match are analysed by the Swiss Laboratory for Doping Analyses.
[39]
Format
The rst round,
or group stage, is
a round-robin
competition
between the 32
teams divided
among eight
groups of four.
The two best
teams in each
group will
progress to the
knockout
stage.
[15]
The ranking of teams in each group is based on:
Points in all group matches, with 3 points awarded for a win, one point for a
draw and none for a loss.
1.
Goal dierence in all group matches 2.
Goals scored in all group matches 3.
Points in matches between tied teams 4.
Goal dierence in matches between tied teams 5.

In the knockout stage there will be four rounds (round of 16, quarter-nals,
semi-nals, and the nal), with each eliminating the losers. The two semi-nal
losers will compete in a third place play-o. A draw in the knockout stages will be
followed by two 15 minute periods of extra time to determine a winner. If the
teams are still tied, a penalty shoot-out will be held.
[15]
The match schedule was announced on 20 October 2011
[40]
with the kick-o times
being conrmed on 27 September 2012;
[41]
after the nal draw, the kick-o times
of seven matches were adjusted by FIFA.
[42]
The competition is organised so that
teams that played each other in the group stage cannot meet again during the
knockout phase until the nal (or the 3rd place match).
Group stage
The group stage began on 12 June, with the host nation competing in the opening
game as has been the format since the 2006 tournament. The opening game was
preceded by an opening ceremony that began at 15:15 local time.

Preparations and costs
Forecasts on the eve of the tournament estimate the cost to the Brazilian
government will be $14 billion, making it the most expensive World Cup to
date.
[50]
FIFA is expected to spend $2 billion on staging the nals,
[51]
with its
greatest single expense being the $576 million prize money pot.
[47]
Although organisers originally estimated costs of US$1.1 billion,
[52]
a reported
US$3.6 billion has ultimately been spent on stadium works.
[53][54]
Five of the
chosen host cities have brand new venues built specically for the World Cup,
while the Estdio Nacional Man Garrincha in the capital Braslia was demolished
and rebuilt, with the remaining six being extensively renovated.

Fuleco, the ocial mascot of
the 2014 FIFA World Cup
An additional R$3 billion (US$1.3 billion, 960 million, 780 million at June 2014
rates) has been earmarked by the Brazilian government for investment in
infrastructure works and projects for use during the 2014 World Cup and
beyond.
[56]
However, the failed completion of many of the proposed works has
provoked discontent among some Brazilians.
[57][58][59]
The Brazilian government has pledged $900 million will be invested into security
forces and that the tournament will be "one of the most protected sports events in
history".
[60]
Marketing
The marketing of the 2014 FIFA World Cup includes
sale of tickets, support from sponsors and
promotion through events that utilize the symbols
and songs of the tournament. Popular merchandise
includes items featuring the ocial mascot as well
as an ocial video game that has been developed
by EA Sports.
[61]
Media
For a fourth consecutive FIFA World Cup Finals, the
coverage is being provided by HBS (Host Broadcast
Services), a subsidiary of Infront Sports & Media.
[62]
Sony has been selected as
the ocial equipment provider and has built 12 bespoke high denition production
40-foot-long containers, one for each tournament venue, to house the extensive
amount of equipment required.
[63][64]
Each match utilises 37 standard camera
plans, including Aerial and Cablecam, two Ultramotion cameras and dedicated
cameras for interviews.
[64]
The ocial tournament lm, as well as three
matches,
[nb 6]
will be lmed with ultra high denition technology (4K resolution),
following a successful trial at the 2013 FIFA Confederations Cup.
[65]
The broadcasting rights covering television, radio, internet and mobile coverage
for the tournament have been sold to media companies in each individual
territory either directly by FIFA, or through licensed companies or organisations
such as the European Broadcasting Union, Organizacin de Televisin
Iberoamericana, International Media Content, Dentsu and RS International
Broadcasting & Sports Management.
[66]
The sale of these rights accounts for an
estimated 60% of FIFA's income from staging a World Cup.
[67]

Broadcast Centre is situated at the Riocentro in the Barra da Tijuca

Controversies
Protests
Prior to the opening ceremony of the 2013 FIFA
Confederations Cup staged in Brazil,
demonstrations took place outside the venue,
organised by people unhappy with the amount of
public money spent to enable the hosting of the
FIFA World Cup.
[70]
Both the Brazilian president
Dilma Rousse and FIFA president Sepp Blatter
were heavily booed as they were announced to give
their speeches at the 2013 tournament's
opening,
[71]
which resulted in FIFA announcing that
the 2014 FIFA World Cup opening ceremony would
not feature any speeches.
[72]
Further protests took
place outside other matches during the Confederations Cup
[73][74]
as part of wider
unrest and rioting in Brazilian cities, seeking to express disenchantment with the
government's nancial management of the country.
[70][75]
Former Brazilian footballer and now political gure Romrio has labelled the
tournament "the biggest theft in history", saying that he believes its real cost will
exceed R$100 billion (US$46 billion). He has called for a deeper investigation into
the widespread misuse of public funds, which he identies as the reason for the
continuing protests.
[76][77][78][79][80]
The weeks preceding the 2014 World Cup as well as the rst days of the
tournament have featured further unrest and protests across the country against
the spending.
[81][82][83]
However, in contrast to the Confederations Cup, security
forces have managed to prevent any protests reaching the stadiums.
[84]
Directly before the tournament, President Rousse reiterated her assurances of
the previous year that all the implemented public works had long-term benets for
Brazilians.
[85][86]
Budweiser bill
After numerous deaths in football stadiums, Brazil passed a law in 2003 outlawing
alcohol sales in stadiums. FIFA demanded that Brazil allow alcohol sales at the
World Cup because Budweiser, a major World Cup sponsor is the "Ocial Beer of

the FIFA World Cup", a role it has played since 1986. In response, Brazil passed a
law paving the way for alcohol sales in the World Cup, nicknamed the "Budweiser
Bill".
[87][88]
Refereeing
In the opening match between host team Brazil and Croatia in Group A, the
ocials were criticised for a number of decisions in favour of the Brazilians. In the
71st minute, defender Dejan Lovren put his hands below Fred's arms in the
Croatian penalty area, after which Fred fell down. Japanese referee Yuichi
Nishimura decided to award Brazil a penalty kick which Neymar subsequently
converted on for what turned out to be the game-winning goal for Brazil. The call
was condemned by various people, including former World Cup referees,
[89]
Japanese fans,
[90]
players from other teams and newspaper writers,
[91][91][92][93]
arguing that Lovren's contact was minimal and that Fred went down on his own.
Massimo Busacca, Head of Refereeing Development at FIFA, defended
Nishimura's decision and stated that Lovren's contact was signicant enough, but
admitted that there are doubts as to whether Nishimura will be appointed to other
games in the tournament.
[94]
12 minutes later, the Croatians had an equaliser by
Ivica Oli disallowed for a foul as Brazilian goalkeeper Jlio Csar went down in a
high-ball duel, another call that was also condemned by various sources.
[95][96][97]
Renowned former top-level FIFA referee Markus Merk questioned FIFA's
appointment of Nishimura as the referee in the opening match, labelling the
refereeing in the match as "embarrassing".
[98]
In the Group A game between Mexico and Cameroon, Mexican midelder Giovani
dos Santos had two goals wrongly disallowed for oside in the rst half. Replays
showed that he was in line with the last defender for the rst, whilst the ball came
from a Cameroonian player for the second.
[99]
Following the game, which Mexico
won 10, Amy Lawrence of The Guardian described the tournament as having
"incompetent ociating", and called for FIFA president Sepp Blatter to allow team
managers to challenge two decisions per match with video review, a possibility
that Blatter discussed before the tournament.
