I'm not swayed by emotions to the Maracana because I didn't like the stadium before this renovation.

So my vote is for Maracana, but Pernambuco is close behind.

It would be a great waste to build new stadiums. Both are a little old, but very "solid" to be demolished (or abandoned). I don't think their interior are awkard, but very modern.

that´s not totally true. Brasilia and Cuiabá has a big concern about their use after the WC. Cuiaba is a better position because they can downgrade the capacity. But Brasilia with a 70k stadium for a city without a football tradition is an issue.

I disagree about Argentina and Colombia. I think they can host with about 6 to 8 stadia with no white elephant. That's why a support the bid of Argentina and Uruguay together for the FIFA WC 2030.

The right way to say is Brazil could have had no white elephant, It could have happened if they had chosen at least one of the following options: use only 10 stadia; use more than one stadia in cities like Sao Paulo, Rio and/or Porto Alegre; select other venues instead of the ones with no football tradition, for example Goiânia, Florianópolis, Campinas, Belém or Santos.

Anyway, I'm not a opositor of the cities chosen, due to the idea of "spreading" the WC throught the country, and even doing this, we have "only" two white elephant candidates (four for the most pessimists). But I diverge with you about Cuiabá, exactly for the capacity reduction as you sad, just like Natal. I would replace it for Manaus.

Thank God you are not the one who makes choices.... otherwise the US would never host a World Cup.
It is amazing how the sport grew in the country after 1994.
Before that occasion, I could never see a boy playing soccer, not even in Florida with such a large hispanic and brazilian population. Today, lots of american boys choose soccer over basketball or baseball everywhere. The same is true to girls.
Hopefully the same will happen in Brazil at those places without any tradition on the sport.
Nothing like amazing and great arenas to support that.
That is definitely FIFA's intention as well.
Don't worry... there will be NO White Elephants in Brazil, nor gray elephants either. They don't belong here.

The problem is not that those cities cant host, but the fact the the stadiums are way too big for them. Brasilia could have a 45k/35 after WC stadium, but never a 70k, thats big even for Sao Paulo.

This Brasília thing is just obscene. US$ 600 million burnt like that, in a stadium that will never be used again.

Meanwhile, Porto Alegre, home of two world champion clubs, will say good buy on the round of 16. This WC is just wrong.

Yes, Brasília's stadium will never be used again (Andrade, Yuri S. 2013). Why didn't the organizers hire you in the first place, after all, your powers to foresee the future, and here I say 'foresee' because it's not even a 'prediction,' it's a certainty, are better than anyone else's, and by being so it would help everyone save their time and money on this doomed stadium. Poor us.

Before running your mouth with things that clearly you are anything but aware of, go look it up in the stadium's agenda for this year and you'll see there's plenty to check. By the way, Beyoncé sends you a kiss, she's gonna be here in September putting up a concert in the stadium that will never be used (she will be the fisrt of many international singers and bands). Bye, dear, and I won't bother coming here to answer any of your prophecies for there is no point in debating with someone who already knows the future, is there? So have a taste on what's coming here:
