As has already been announced, with the draw procedures for the 2014 FIFA World Cup preliminary draw having been approved by the FIFA Executive Committee on 30 May 2011, there is no longer any need for a meeting of the Organising Committee of the FIFA World Cup to take place before the preliminary draw.

The Organising Committee will therefore meet in October 2011, some days before the FIFA Executive Committee meeting of 20 and 21 October which will be in charge of ratifying the match schedule of the 2014 FIFA World Cup.
