BRANSKI, Regina Meyer; NUNES, Elisa Eroles Freire; LOUREIRO, Sérgio Adriano  e  LIMA JR, Orlando Fontes. Infrastructures in the Germany, South Africa and Brazil World Cups. Cad. Metrop. [online]. 2013, vol.15, n.30, pp.557-582. ISSN 2236-9996.

Brazil will host the FIFA World Cup in 2014, which is a worldwide event that occurs every four years and is responsible for moving a large number of people.The preparation to host the World Cup requires high investments in infrastructure that often remains underutilized after the event. The objective of this research is to evaluate whether the infrastructure (stadiums and transport systems) built for the Germany, South Africa and Brazil World Cups are positive legacies for the host countries. The methodology was case study, which was developed from secondary data. The study showed that (1) in Brazil, investments in transport ation systems do not meet the host cities’ real needs, and (2) unlike what happened in Germany, in South Africa stadiums are underutilized, and there are difficulties to maintain them. The perspectives to Brazil are not good and there are great chances that the country will face problems that are similar to those of South Africa.
