Games played at troubled World Cup stadiums

Games played at troubled stadiums

SAO PAULO – Brazilian organizers held test events at two of the problematic World Cup stadiums, including the one hosting the tournament’s opening game next month in Sao Paulo.

Nearly 20,000 people attended Saturday’s exhibition between past and present Corinthians players at the Itaquerao stadium, which remains under construction and will not hold a full test event until next weekend.

In Porto Alegre, about 35,000 Internacional fans saw their team beat Atletico Paranaense 2-1 in a Brazilian league match at the Beira-Rio Stadium. It was the last test event at the venue scheduled to stage five World Cup matches.

FIFA Secretary General Jerome Valcke said recently the Itaquerao and the Beira-Rio were among the stadiums still causing concern, along with the Arena da Baixada in Curitiba.
