There’s no soccer games, concerts, or events of any type occurring at the majority of the 12 venues that were built or refurbished at a cost of $3 billion for Brazil’s World Cup. In fact, the most expensive stadium in Brasilia is being used as a municipal parking lot for buses.

Though a stadium renovated for the World Cup will be reused for the games, the country will still spend a projected $13.2 billion on other facilities and infrastructure, a number that’s likely to continue climbing as the games approach.
Quite an interesting read. Check out the full article here.
