For FIFA, the hotel chain capacity of the World Cup host cities will have no problem to host the 600,000 foreign tourists that are expected for the event.

At least that is what the director of Match Services Paul Whelan thinks, who represents in Brazil the partner company of the entity responsible for booking hotel rooms for tourists who will come from all over the world to watch the World Cup.

Whelan participated on this Wednesday (April 11) of the Tourism and Business Seminar, held in São Paulo. The director of the Accor hotel chain for the Latin America Roland Bonadona also attended the event.

"During the World Cup we will have a demand of 35,000 rooms per day, so that about 600,000 visitors stay, on average, for 10 days. Rio de Janeiro is expected to be open at least 80 hotels by 2014. São Paulo has no project announced," said Bonadona.
