FIFA and Brazilian authorities say they spent some $11 million organizing this draw. That included erecting a tent the size of an aircraft hangar for the draw, with nearly 50 kilometers of cabling, 36 tons of lighting and 9,000 square meters of floor space — making it larger than nearly all of the world’s cathedrals.

Husband and wife team Fernanda Lima and Rodrigo Hilbert, both presenters on Brazilian television, will emcee the show. Samba singer Alcione, Sao Paulo rapper Emicida and others are providing the entertainment.
