The draw for the qualifiers of the World Cup 2014 can be in Cidade da Música (City of Music) in Rio de Janeiro. The draw, one of the main feasts of FIFA, will be held in July 2011 and, until now, the Rio is the only city to apply to host it, according the brazilian website UOL Esporte.
The City of Music is a cultural complex which was officially opened in late 2008, shortly before the former mayor, Cesar Maia, leaves office. The work cost over US$ 200 million to city coffers, but so far remains unfinished and unused.
Rio’s mayor, Mr. Eduardo Paes, have also offered the Aterro do Flamengo’s area, one of the most beautiful locations in Rio, to host part of the TV’studios for the International Broadcasting Center (IBC).
