Stadium Competition in Sao Paulo Ahead of 2014 World Cup

Officials representing Sao Paulo's Palmeiras soccer club have officially submitted their documentation to be considered as a host pitch during the 2014 World Cup.

The Arena Palestra is under construction and is expected to be ready by the end of 2011. Corinthians' Pacaembu stadium needs renovation that would cost nearly 200,000 U.S. dollars and Morumbi has been repeatedly criticized by FIFA for fan visibility problems and accessibility.
