Rio World Cup Activities for the 2014 World Cup are very well in play! The country is definitely ready for the 2014 World Cup to get underway, as the preparations for the World Cup have definitely had the City of Rio de Janeiro under an immense amount of gridlock and the delays.

Even though the events are about to begin within the city, the traffic gridlock that are occurring in random areas are definitely most likely to get worse, before they get better. Whether it be in the city center, or even in outlaying suburban areas, the traffic gridlocks that are happening on the motorways are really discouraging many residents. While being discouraging to many residents, the native Brazilians are still in favor of their country winning the 2014 World Cup!

While there have been many protests in the city of Rio de Janeiro against the 2014 World Cup, events on the motorways, the lack of healthcare, the lack of education, the need for better urban planning and more mass transit and other city necessities are really making people question whether or not it was a good idea to go after these events.


Most Brazilians want Brazil to win the 2014 World Cup, many believe that the decision to host the Wold Cup in the country of Brazil was a bad idea! At end of the day when all the costs and interest payments are added up, many believe this amount will be too much to bear for the country.


Many are beginning to speculate that this would have been better spent in areas such as public education, public healthcare, and public transportation. Also, many Brazilians were promised that there would be a highway from the city of São Paulo, connecting to the city of Rio de Janeiro.


This awesome idea was thrown out, and many Brazilian citizens wonder what they will end up getting at the end of the day for all the expense that we will spend the next 20 to 30 years paying for. The infrastructure investments that they were promised years ago, have never come to be! The only thing that it appears that these events have brought, are new stadiums. When these events are over, these will just be “white elephants”.

Anyway, for those of you that are coming down, you will certainly need a schedule of where to go to see the football matches. Here is a DOWNLOADABLE PDF file that has all the listed games 2014 World Cup Matches. CLICK HERE!
