In the summer of 2010, millions of people experienced the FIFA World Cup™ together at public locations throughout South Africa and transformed the host country into a month-long celebration.
To ensure that the FIFA Confederations Cup 2013 and the 2014 FIFA World Cup™ will also be unforgettable football festivals for all Brazilians, and in order to protect the TV rights of the FIFA Media Rights Licensees in the country, FIFA has put in place a special licence agreement with TV Globo, the official broadcaster of the FIFA Confederations Cup Brazil 2013 and the 2014 FIFA World Cup Brazil™ in the territory.
In addition, FIFA is working together with the 12 host cities on the implementation concept for the official FIFA Fan Fests in Brazil.
Online platform for the submission of requests
All parties interested in staging Commercial Public Viewing Events (“Commercial Public Viewing Events”) and Non-Commercial Public Viewing Events with a spectator capacity greater than 5,000 people (“Special Non-Commercial Public Viewing Events”) in Brazil are requested to submit their proposals to TV Globo on its dedicated online platform via www.exibicaopublicafifa.com.br
The FIFA Confederations Cup 2013 section of the online platform will be active as of 9 July 2012, while the launch date of the 2014 FIFA World Cup section will be communicated at a later stage this year.
The online platform will host two different subsections for the FIFA Confederations Cup Brazil 2013 requests and for the 2014 FIFA World Cup Brazil™ applications.
Free Non-Commercial Public Viewing licences
Thanks to the support of TV Globo, the Official Media Rights Licensee in Brazil, no licences will be required to project the matches in a non-commercial environment and with a spectator capacity under 5,000 people. Organisers of such events shall, however, comply with the terms and conditions stipulated in the FIFA Regulations for Public Viewing Events in Brazil (see “Documents” section on the right).
World football’s governing body hopes that with free access to non-commercial public viewings, all fans in Brazil will be able to enjoy and be part of the incredible FIFA World Cup™ experience.
Licence for Special Non-Commercial Public Viewing Events
All parties that are interested in staging Special Non-Commercial Public Viewing Events – non-commercial public viewing exhibitions with a spectator capacity greater than 5,000 people – are requested to apply for a licence to TV Globo and comply with the FIFA Regulations for Public Viewing Events in Brazil (see “Documents” section on the right). No fee will apply to these events.
Commercial Public Viewing Events
Brazilian exhibitors who wish to organise a Commercial Public Viewing Event will need to apply for a public viewing licence from TV Globo to show matches of the FIFA competitions at such events. Please refer to the FIFA Regulations for Public Viewing Events in Brazil (see “Documents” section on the right).
Donation of fees
As was the case in 2006 and 2010, revenue generated by licence fees in Brazil will be donated by FIFA and TV Globo to a charity programme in Brazil yet to be announced.

Queries for licences for 3D and public viewing exhibitions in theatres and cinemas should be addressed to FIFA at email@example.com.
