Maracana will be ready for 2014 World Cup

Brazil,Sports, Wed, 11 Apr 2012 IANS

Rio De Janeiro, April 11 (IANS) Rio de Janeiro's special events secretary Ruy Cezar said the majestic Maracana stadium will be ready for the 2014 World Cup though construction work is just 40 percent complete.


Cezar's comments came after Brazilian newspaper Folha de Sao Paulo reported that Maracana would not meet even the International Olympic Council's (IOC) demands for the 2016 Olympics despite its $545 million revamp, Xinhua reported.


"We are completely satisfied with the way the refurbishments have been going and we have a commitment to the governor Sergio Cabral to have it ready in time for competition," Cezar said during a business World Cup seminar in Rio.


Cezar said Rio's municipal council had opened the tendering process for the restoration of the stadium's surrounding area, which is prone to flooding.


Works are also being done on roads connecting Maracana to the Engenhao stadium, which will host the Olympic athletics events.


"We are going to build systems that resolve these problems, apart from recuperating the transport corridor to the Engenhao which is currently in a poor state," Cezar.
