We support and acknowledge the right of free speech and to demonstrate peacefully and condemn any form of violence. We are in constant contact with the local authorities and have full trust in the security arrangements in place.

We will continue to monitor the situation. At no stage neither FIFA, the Local Organising Committee (LOC) nor the Federal Government discussed or considered to cancel the FIFA Confederations Cup.

We are in constant contact with all stakeholders, including the teams, and keep them updated on all arrangements made. We have not received any requests to leave Brazil from any team.
