Broadcasting rights have been awarded to three organizations in Brazil.

  • TV Globo
  • Bandeirantes
  • Rede Record

This is important because all Brazilian citizens will have access to free coverage of the games.

2016 Summer Olympics

October 2, 2009: International Olympics Committee (IOC) announced Brazil as the host country of the 2016 Summer Olympics

Rio de Janeiro beat out Madrid, Tokyo, and Chicago

This marks the first time that South America has ever hosted the Olympics.

2016 summer olympics1

President and Michelle Obama personally rallied for the Olympics to be hosted by Chicago in 2016.

Chicago had the lowest bid at $4.8 billion compared to Rio’s bid at $13.9 billion.

In a recent trip to Brazil, President Obama repeatedly said that “the United States wanted to help Brazil in building infrastructure for the 2014 World Cup and the 2016 Summer Olympics, and in developing Brazil’s recently discovered deepwater oil reserves, and then buying the oil.”

Hosting the games will “inject $51.1 billion into Latin America’s largest economy through 2027.”

Additionally, the Olympics and Paralympics will create nearly 121,000 jobs a year in the seven-year period.

With just two deals, the organizers have already secured an estimated $700 million in local sponsorships, which was a new record for the Olympics.

In addition, the tower will serve as the welcome sign and hold the Olympic flame.

Sports Venues

  • Numerous sports facilities have already been built for the 1950 World Cup and the 2007 Pan American Games, but many more venues await construction.
  • Many big projects are behind schedule. For example, the stadium that is expected to host the World Cup’s first match in Sao Paulo has yet to break ground as of March 2011.

Sambadrome, Olympic Marathon & Archery



  • ``Transportation is our biggest challenge,'' said Felipe de FariaGóes, Secretary of Development for Rio de Janeiro.
  • Three new major highway/bus rapid transit routes will connect the four Olympic venues.
  • The TransCarioca route, which runs from the north to the south, costs $447.5 million and will displace 3,000 families in dense northern neighborhoods at a cost of $171 million.

Airports and Hotels

  • Ricardo Teixeira, president of the Brazilian football federation, has made it clear what is on his mind: ``The three main priorities we have are airports, airports, airports.''
  • The Brazilian government plans to invest approximately $3 billion to update its airports to handle the traffic of visitors for the World Cup.
  • Construction has begun or been approved for more than 300 hotels, but a 20,000 room deficit is still expected for the Olympics. Docked cruise ships will be used to cover about 8,000 of those rooms.


  • Approximately 92% of Brazil’s power comes from hydroelectric sources.
  • Many are concerned about the power grid being overwhelmed during these sporting events, as local blackouts are not uncommon.
  • In November 2009, 18 out of 27 states were affected by a nearly four hour blackout.
  • Just two weeks after winning the Olympic bid, 21 Brazilians were killed and more were injured in a shoot-out between rival drug gangs in Rio de Janeiro. A police helicopter crashed after being caught in the crossfire.
  • The federal government provided state authorities with emergency funding to combat the drug gangs, which control many of Rio’s 1,000 favelas. Rio State Governor Sergio Cabral was promised $59 million by the President to combat crime in the following six months.
  • "We told the International Olympic Committee that this is not easy, and they know that," Rio Governor Sergio Cabral said. "We don't want just to be ready for special days — for that we can put 40,000 police on the streets. I told them we want to get to 2016 and have a peaceful Rio de Janeiro before, during and after the Games.“
  • Approximately $500 million will be provided to the Rio state to ensure the security of the Olympic Games.
  • As of 2009, the Pacifier Police Divisions, which establish a police presence in favelas before crime occurs, had only been introduced in four of the favelas due to a lack of resources and manpower.
  • Authorities are now focusing on hiring rookie cops and paying them bonuses to prevent them from turning to bribes from the drug gangs. President Lula established a law that provides a bonus payment to public security officials, who will serve during both the World Cup and Olympics.
