Digital Sports Group today announced that Sport.co.uk will be providing extended coverage of ‘World Cup Draw Day’ with all the news and build-up to the draw on Friday 6th December.
32 of the best international football teams will soon know who they will face in the opening group games of the FIFA World Cup 2014 in Brazil. The draw, which will be presented from the Bahia’s Costa do Sauipe resort on the east coast of Brazil, will have a glittering guest list of football legends including Zidane and Sir Geoff Hurst.
The show will be run by the FIFA Secretary General with the assistance of World Cup legends with more specific details about the draw procedure being announced on the 3rd of December. It is widely expected however to be broken into four pots with the hosts and seeds being in the first pot. Sport.co.uk will be following news and rumours around the draw all day with the show itself starting at 4pm and running until 5:30pm when every nation will know who they will face, where they will play and the scale of their challenge.
Head of Operations at DSG, Matthew Tait had this to say “With 32 of the best teams in the world there is going to be big teams playing big teams all the way through the groups. I think every England fan will be hoping they are not drawn against certain teams but they were not seeded high enough so the probability is obviously strong of getting one of the very best teams. That said England are known to play better against the bigger teams and are less likely to face defence minded opposition. I would personal love to see England in with Brazil.”
Simon Boynton, Managing Director of DSG believes that sport.co.uk will be the perfect place to get the up to the second updates on the draw. ”We have a great website and community in sport.co.uk with a pervasive social presence, bundles of experience and respected experts to present and analyse the draw online. Join us as we take you to the Bahia’s Costa do Sauipe resort and discover the first games that will shape the destinies of the 32 best international football teams in the world. ”
