As the photo above shows, the finishing touches are being put to the Arena Fonte Nova prior to its opening this coming Friday. That image is just one of several to feature in our latest update on the venues that will host the 2014 FIFA World Cup Brazil™.
Located in the city of Salvador, the stadium will be the third to reach completion after the Castelao and the Mineirao, and will host three matches at the FIFA Confederations Cup Brazil 2013.
The update also includes photos of the other nine world finals venues, among them images of the pitches at the Maracana in Rio de Janeiro, where the final of the FIFA Confederations Cup will be held on 30 June, and the Arena Pernambuco, which will stage three games at the Festival of Champions.
