The first game of the World Cup in Brazil is just a couple of months away and it looks as though the country is ‘rushing to finish the last of its brand-new stadiums’. Just eight of the World Cup stadiums are ready to be used (out of 12), with some venues half-built, ‘sometimes tucked between slums, and sometimes needlessly expensive’.

While The Maracana in Rio de Janeiro is finished, the Arena Corinthians in Sao Paulo is the furthest behind in schedule due to multiple construction worker deaths in the past year. Fingers crossed all 12 arenas are completed before the kick off!
