Valcke has stated concern at the slow-moving progress shown by the host nation of the 2014 mega event. The lack of progress has been most evident in Sao Paulo, where a new stadium is under construction. The stadium that was planned to be used in the 2014 world cup is not likely to be ready by 2013. As at first planned, the stadium was to be up in time to host the Confederations Cup to be kept in that year. That will serve as a wedding rehearsal for the bigger event to come, in 2014. 

Another part of tardiness has been in the building of airports and transport links. Brazil is said to lack stadiums, airports and a nationwide transportation system, according to Valcke.

Brazil hosted the FIFA World Cup, once earlier, way back in 1950. The 2014 web host nation has had the most successful team at any time, having won the wedding a record five times. Although the South American country’s planning leaves much to be desired since making a successful bid to host the 2014 world cup event.

Building stadiums was the most challenging task of all, relating to Valcke, who highlighted that the Sao Paulo stadium was unlikely to be applied at all, in 2014, when it was not up to the required standard. Valcke made his comments on a visit to Moscow, in Russia, while speaking to Russian officials of the organizing committee of the 2018 world cup. Russian federation were recently successful in their bid to sponsor the 2018 event, and the FIFA secretary basic advised them to be ready with everything in place, at least 2 years ahead of the event.

Russia will have to build and renovate practically every arena available in the area, according to Alexei Sorokin, chief business of Russia’s world glass organising committee. Nevertheless , Sorokin was optimistic that everything would be up and running by 2016, as required by FIFA.

Sorokin said that Russia did not have a single arena up to FIFA’s criteria, but that it was well within their capacity to get the required infrastructure in place, in time. The new structure is likely to cost Russia $10 billion, pass on across 13 host towns named for the event.
