The 1982 FIFA World Cup™ was spread across 14 cities, with 17 stadiums used to stage Spain's showcase.

That remains a record for a single-nation World Cup, although Japan and Korea Republic both provided ten venues apiece for the 2002 edition. Contrast these figures to those from the first World Cup in Uruguay, when matches were played in just three stadiums - all in Montevideo.

Brazil 2014, for its part, will tread a middle ground between these extremes, with 12 stadiums in as many Host Cities.
