2014 FIFA World Cup Host City - Cuiaba
Support the 2014 FIFA World Cup Host City of Cuiaba, with official FIFA Merchandise! The capital of the state of Mato Grosso, Cuiaba is located in the exact geographic centre of South America, an equidistant 2,000 km from the Atlantic and Pacific oceans. Cuiabá stands on a privileged location for tourists, as it confronts three of Brazil's most important and characteristic ecosystems: the savannahs of the Cerrado; the wetlands of the Pantanal; and the Amazon. With such a massive presence of nature, it is no wonder, then, that Cuiaba has been nicknamed ‘Green City'. The Jose Fragelli stadium, also known as the Verdão (Big Green), was the most important stadium in Mato Grosso until 2010. The 45,000-seater ground was built in 1976, and has hosted four of Brazil's friendlies; the most recent one a 6-1 win over Iceland in March 2002. For the 2014 FIFA World Cup, the Verdão will be replaced by the scintillating Arena Pantanal.
