Description
A country, which has produced soccer greats, Pelé, Garrincha, Romário, Ronaldo and Ronaldinho. A people, who know instinctively how to enjoy the festival atmosphere of football. The 2014 FIFA World CupTM opens its doo's in Brazil, the country of samba.

In 1970 Brazil won its 3rd World Cup and was awarded the Jules Rimet Trophy permanently for the first time in FIFA history. Since then, Brazil took two more trophies and was crowned the world football champion. It is due to the Brazilian passion for soccer and the hope that their skillful soccer team will shine brightest on their home turf that every soccer fan eagerly awaits the Brazil World Cup.

This coming World Cup will welcome a total of 32 teams: 13 from Europe, 6 from South America, 4 from North and Central America, 5 from Africa, 3 from Asia and 1 from Oceania. From June 12, 2014, these nations will take part in games across Brazil, including São Paulo, Curitiba and Brasilia among others, with the final championship match being held on July 13 in Rio de Janeiro.

The FIFA World Cup returns after four years. The entire Korean nation is set to cheer for the Korean team with the harmonious chant: “Dae~han~minguk” meaning, Korea. We anticipate the chance to enjoy many exciting matches.
