The World Cup draw, defining the teams and groups taking place in the event, will take place on 6 December 2013 at the Costa do Sauípe resort, in the north coast of the state of Bahia, FIFA recently announced.
It will be a chance to inject oxygen into a resort that is being outperformed by competitors along the coast of Bahia. Bear in mind that contrary to what we have seen reported in several media outlets, Costa do Sauípe is not in the vicinity of Salvador de Bahía. It takes two hours to drive the distance of 110 km from the resort to the capital.
On that date, the national teams that make it to the Brazil World Cup will get to know their first rivals and also the cities where they will be based during the initial stage of the tournament.
