NEW DELHI: The executive committee of Fifa (Fédération Internationale de Football Association), has announced the 12 host cities for the 2014 FIFA World Cup Brazil.

The venues include Rio de Janeiro, Salvador, São Paulo, Porto Alegre, Belo Horizonte, Brasília, Cuiabá, Curitiba, Fortaleza, Manaus, Natal and Recife.


The decision was made public on Sunday by the committee in Nassau, the capital of the Bahamas.

Announcing the names, Fifa president Joseph S Blatter mentioned that the cities are selected on the basis of extensive analysis by Fifa and the local organising committee of the 17 candidate cities.


Earlier, 10 cities were to be selected for the event. Blatter said, "In the very beginning, 10 cities were going to be chosen, but thanks to the influence of Brazilian Football Confederation president Ricardo Teixeira and the interest of the whole country, we agreed increasing the number to 12."

Five cities - Florianopolis, Goiania, Campo Grande, Rio Branco and Belem - were not selected by the committee.

It will be for the second time that the Fifa World Cup will take place in Brazil. The five-time world champions last hosted the flagship event in 1950.
