As Brazil is set to open the World Cup against Croatia on June 12 at the 68,000-capacity venue, the team were scheduled to take on Cruzeiro – defending Brazil Serie A champions – as a warm-up on May 29 at the venue, in a match that was eagerly anticipated by soccer betting fans and pay per head sportsbooks.
But soccer betting fans found out that in Sao Paulo, fears of traffic chaos forced a rescheduling of the match for the day before, and pay per head sportsbooks learned that instead it switched to Portuguesa’s Caninde Stadium.
Now FIFA, price per head services, and many fans that bet soccer, hope that the Brazilian Football Confederation (CBF) can help by switching Corinthians’ match with Botafogo on June 1 to Corinthians Arena, which was originally scheduled to take place in Rio.
“The second test event ahead of opening World Cup match will be staged at Arena de Sao Paulo (Corinthians arena) on June 1,” FIFA’s secretary general Jerome Valcke said on Twitter. “CBF to re-allocate League match.
“It vital for us that all facilities will be tested under full match conditions including the temporary seats and associated facilities.”
Pay per head sportsbooks also know how important this is – especially before the World Cup gets underway.

And pay per head sportsbooks can also see that even though Corinthians already played at the stadium their first official game, which resulted in a loss last Sunday to Figueirense, FIFA are desperate for more thorough testing before Brazil’s opening game after the match only attracted 38,000 spectators – a situation that concerned many fans that bet soccer.
Soccer betting fans can see that there is a bit of turmoil in Brazil after the change of plans, and they hope things settle down in the best possible manner.
