Brazil Sport Business

AldoRebello_BlatterBrazilian Sports Minister Aldo Rebelo has confirmed that the country is interested in hosting the Women’s World Cup in 2019 or 2023.

Rebelo confirmed that he had talked to FIFA President Sepp Blatter about the idea and if successful Brazil would host the Women’s tournament in the same year they host the Copa America.

''I think other countries are interested in holding the event,'' Rebelo said. ''We'll have to look at the calendar. If we don't get it for 2019, then we'll have to look at another year (2023).''

Brazil is currently preparing for the 2014 World Cup after hosting the Confederations Cup this year.

The country will also host the 2016 Olympic Games in Rio but both tournaments are struggling to stay on schedule and have caused outrage from the public over the spiralling costs of hosting the events.

New International Olympic Committee (IOC) Vice-President John Coates described Rio 2016 and their slow preparations as the IOC’s “biggest challenge,” last week, piling extra pressure on the event organisers.

Canada will host the 2015 Women’s World Cup.

Thank you very much for sharing additional perspectives, Fiona. I welcome differing views. They help me better understand and appreciate the variety of perspectives that I come across in the sport community. They also help me further develop my own thinking. While business and sport are indeed different in many ways, what they have in common is an interest in safeguarding reputation and trust with their key stakeholders. Since these stakeholders increasingly ask for them to be part of a solution to address societal issues, it is good reputation and stakeholder management to find ways of becoming part of a solution rather than accepting being seen as part of a problem only. Ultimately, for sport it is about preempting the risk of sponsors walking away from a big sport event due to loss of commercial value. It is about preempting the risk of governments of other countries forbidding their athletes to participate in a big sport event – or the athletes deciding themselves not to go. It is about preempting the wider general public from deciding not to attend or follow a big sport event in the media – or even generate negative news from demonstrations and other activities that could take away the attention from the event itself. And, not least, it is about showcasing the values of sport at play in the context of a big sport event – inside and outside the stadium. As for the perspectives that I offered on how to go about becoming part of a solution, I believe that leaders of any organization, including sport, can only benefit from getting outside advise and access to additional expertise, experience and perspectives. I have offered my perspectives on one of probably many valuable solutions in terms of a process. I do not think that that there is such a thing as one size fits all or that sport leaders should necessarily engage consultants to help develop solutions. In fact, for this particular event governance related challenge, sport leaders have a unique opportunity to engage and learn from their sponsors. They probably already all have comprehensive stakeholders engagement strategies in place and do specific corporate responsibility related projects to address societal issues. Thanks again for sharing your perspectives. I very much appreciate to be able to count you as an avid reader of my contributions for iSportconnect’s expert column on governance. And I would sincerely welcome future online discussions with you.

Steve, you are absolutely right. Regulations are needed. A pattern where for example each team would have 3 calls per game (or per half). So they have to chose wisely. It takes 10 seconds max to examine and give the decision based on the video replay. I think it will solve a lot; from players' cheating, faking, on/off sides etc...

The cities will be ready in time, but the question is: what kind of "ready" are we talking about? The city of Porto Alegre, which is in South Brazil, is not one of the six host cities of the Confederation's Cup and have a beautiful new arena (called "Grêmio Arena"). Besides, the city is one of the most developed in the whole country. Because of politics, Porto Alegre is out of Confederation's Cup, while cities with big problems of urban mobility, for example, will host the competition. I have no doubt that the cities will be "ready" in time, as I said, but the Confederation's Cup and the World Cup will expose the biggest Brazilian problem: inequality.

Sports' infrastructure will be up and ready, but we all know that a mega event, such as the World Cup is much more than sports arenas. Telecommunications, hospitality and security infrastructure should be the pressing issues, but I don;t think FIFA is giving enough attention to those details.

Update: FIFA & Brazil Settle Differences Will the Brazilians now be able to push on with their preparations without the distractions from a dispute with FIFA? How important is it for the Brazilian federation to co-operate with FIFA in order to create a successful World Cup?

It seems the answer to the above question is, no he won't! That job now falls to Marco Polo del Nero. The full story is here:

Eric, why is Brazil unable to keep it’s star players and attract the European superstars? Could it be explained by the reckless amount of money that is pumped into European football? Will Financial Fair Play affect this at all? Or is the attraction of wealth in Europe secondary to the problems in Brazil? Regarding the presidency, the common belief is that it’s too early to tell whether it will have an immediate impact and that Mr Teixiera will still retain his influence, albeit from in the shadows. Now that he has stepped down from the executive committee of FIFA, has anything changed? I heard that former footballer and legend Ronaldo has thrown his name in the hat for the presidency job. I’m not too convinced about his off-the-field acumen as I am about his skills with a ball at his feet. Although, he doesn’t look as fast as he used to be. Talking about matters on the pitch, Renato, I’m surprised to hear that the national team is not playing with the flair and style that is normally associated with Brazilian football. You guys are blessed with a production line that will continuously churn out future stars – Lucas, Ganso, Alex Sandro etc. Guess the responsibility lies with the coach… On another note, with the World Cup situation, it’s a positive sign that Rousseff and Blatter had a meeting: “no doubt the government will implement all the guarantees that have been given to FIFA." Those are strong words.

Sorry Brian. The arena specification for each World Cup changes depending on the location and Fifa's political approach for that specific area. At least to my knowledge Fifa's arena specification book is not available online. This is exactly why this arena demands such a grey area. My company deals with engagement technology and Medias for venues, and we have at least a couple 2014 World Cup venues in the prospecting process, and both of them are using different standards. I’m sorry I cannot be of assistance to you on that regard. Cheers Renato Geribello
