Brazil celebrates 100-day mark to World Cup

05 March 2014, 09:14

Sao Paulo - Brazil is commemorating the 100-day mark to the World Cup by lighting up tourist attractions with the green and yellow colors of the national flag.

Some monuments, bridges, theaters and World Cup stadiums were lit up across the country Tuesday to celebrate the milestone.

Among the stadiums illuminated with the national colors were the Mineirao in Belo Horizonte and the Maracana, which will host the final of football's showcase event in Rio de Janeiro on July 13.

The World Cup begins on June 12 with Brazil playing Croatia in Sao Paulo.

With the tournament approaching fast, local organizers continue to struggle to get venues and infrastructure work completed. Four of the 12 stadiums aren't finalized, and two may be ready less than a month before the opener.
