Background

The twentieth FIFA World Cup Finals were awarded to Brazil on 30 October 2007.

 On 7 March 2003, FIFA announced that the tournament would be held in South America, in line with the policy of rotating the tournament amongst different confederations. On 3 June 2003, CONMEBOL announced that Argentina, Brazil, and Colombia each expressed interest to host the tournament. On 17 March 2004, the individual associations had voted unanimously to back Brazil.

Brazil formally declared its bid in December 2006, however, Colombia also declared a bid a few days later only to withdraw its bid on 11 April 2007,  hosting the 2011 FIFA U-20 World Cup instead.  Brazil won the right to host the event on 30 October 2007 unopposed.
