2014 World Cup City Guide

12 cities will stage world cup games. Cuiabá, Manaus, Natal, Recife, Salvador and São Paulo will host matches in brand new stadiums, while Belo Horizonte, Brasília, Curitiba, Fortaleza, Porto Alegre, and Rio de Janeiro have all seen upgrades made to their grounds.

The final will be held at the Estádio do Maracanã in Rio de Janeiro - the same ground that hosted the final of the 1950 World Cup. While the final in 1950 saw 199,854 spectators attending at the venue, today's renovated ground can only hold a maximum of 78,838 people.
