Edit: My bad, the article is from 2012. Before posting I swear I looked at the date to confirm it was a new article but…it’s not.
I’m not sure if this is actually news to everyone but it is to me. According to a new article by FIFA, there will be a FIFA Fan Fest (at Marco Zero) in Recife during the World Cup. I’m not sure if it was done via a Private-Public Partnership, but I’m guessing it was since the main reason for initially cancelling it was that the Recife gov’t didn’t want to bank the R$20 million cost to host it. Under contract, they couldn’t just plain skip doing it.
