Security Advisory: World CupJune 29, 2014 in 2014 FIFA World Cup - Security Update
Brazil scraped through by the skin of their teeth… without biting! From a fan security point of view, this is probably a positive outcome as the longer Brazil stays in the less likely they are to start trouble protesting. I’d rather see the population glued to the screen than getting into fights on the street with visiting fans who goad them on if or when they lose.
Today’s games are in Fortaleza (31C, clear) and Recife (28C, drizzle and could get heavier). Heavy weather in Recife has proven a problem prior to recent matches when a 40min trip to the stadium has taken 4hrs. Neither city has seen any serious problems with fan security at games or at fan fests.
