SAO PAULO (AP) - FIFA’s top World Cup official is arriving in Brazil to visit the three stadiums yet to be completed. One of them is the host for the World Cup opener in a few weeks.

Secretary General Jerome Valcke will inspect construction work at the Itaquerao in Sao Paulo on Tuesday to begin his latest tour of host cities.

He will later visit the two other stadiums still under construction - one in the southern city of Curitiba and another in the western city of Cuiaba.

Valcke’s agenda also includes a visit to Fortaleza. The northeastern city will be the site of an event that allows people without tickets to watch matches for free in public areas.
