2014 FIFA World Cup in Brazil: Gentrification of Brazilian Football

Abstract

This research focuses on the impacts of the 2014 FIFA Football World Cup on the Brazilian national football scene, especially in terms of its sporting infrastructure, relevant football bodies and fans of the national clubs. Through a qualitative approach based on a three-year longitudinal study (interviews, observations and documentary analysis) the theme was analyzed taking into account the importance of Brazilian football culture, whether as a sport or as a leisure activity, and the local aspects in four host cities of the competition: Belo Horizonte, Manaus, Recife and Rio de Janeiro. The results showed a profound modification of the country’s stadiums infrastructure over the medium term, and a consequent gentrification of the fan base. Although managers of the country’s top clubs are aware of these changes, the scenario for Brazilian football remains precarious when we consider the power of this sport within the country.
