But if the maya are wrong we are all doomend. and if the Stadium are not ready on time, FIFA would have to Bring the World Cup to a Country that is ready for the Cup, most of the Fingers point to USA in that case, and no the almost finished Red Bull Park would not be able to receive the cup, because it only seats "only" 25000 people FIFA Required at least 40000 People.
Right now Brazilian population are divide in 2 groups " Cool world Cup in Brazil" and " Crap world Cup in Brazil"
The first group usually made o people who live in a city where the cup will be held.
The second Group is partially formated by people who live in the cities where the cup will be held and all of people who don't live in a city who won't be held a cup.
Their biggest argument is that will be a shameful world cup because Brazil, doesn't have a adequate structure to support a event of this scale and violence Plaguing Brazil.
Another big con that this Group cites is the Public money that will be spent on this cup, but still unclear which project would receive money from federal government, and also is if ever some off those projects receive money from federal or state government, how much % of that money will be laundry by the Corrupted Politician.
Just a exemple of the Corruption the last Pan-american Games held in Rio Cost more then the triple of the original cost, the "Engenhão Stadium" alone cost 5x more than the original cost, and was just Barely finished one month prior the game so now the stadium in falling to pieces.
So That's why if FIFA sees that the construction off those projects are late, they can move the world cup for another country, in that case the country with most chances would be the USA, but maybe some European country will held.
