FIFA.com and FIFA TV are pleased to present the 13th episode of the official 2014 FIFA World Cup Brazil™ Video Magazine. The focus this time is on host city Cuiaba, where there’s a lot more to life than just football. We also take a look back at the qualifying competition in Europe.
Four group stage matches at next year’s global test of footballing strength will be played at Arena Pantanal in Cuiaba. To whet the appetite, join us on a trip of the capital city of Mato Grosso state.
We were there to cover a FIFA tour of inspection and to take a closer look at the Pantanal stadium. We also introduce you to Cuiaba Esporte Clube, four-time winners of the Mato Grosso state championship.
But as you’ll find out, football isn’t the only thing stirring local passions, because this is Brazil, and music and dance inevitably play an important role in everyday life in Cuiabas.
