Ceará is one of the 27 states of Brazil and is located in the northeastern part of the country, bordering the Atlantic Ocean and the states of Rio Grande do Norte, Paraíba, Pernambuco and Piauí. Ceará is also known as the "sunshine coast". With thousands of kilometres of beach and hundreds of small towns, Ceará is a mecca for kiteboarders and surfers alike. There is unparalleled wind in Ceará, for more than 7 months, which has tourists coming from all over the world to learn to kitesurf or kiteboard. One of the better locations to kiteboard is Ilha do Guajiru, just north of Itarema, 230 kilometres from Fortaleza, the capital and biggest city in the state of Ceará. Here there's a large flat water lagoon which makes it popular with both beginners and more advanced kiteboarders.

The FIFA World Cup 2014 will be held in Brazil. It takes place from 12 June to 13 July 2014. It will be the second time that Brazil has hosted the competition, the previous being in 1950. The national teams of 32 countries will join the second biggest sports event in the world (after the Olympic Games). A total of 64 matches are to be played in twelve cities across Brazil, with the tournament beginning with a group stage. For the first time at a World Cup Finals, the matches will use goal-line technology. Twelve locations will be World Cup host cities: Belo Horizonte, Brasília, Cuiabá, Curitiba, Fortaleza, Manaus, Natal, Porto Alegre, Recife, Rio de Janeiro, Salvador and São Paulo. They cover all the main regions of Brazil and create more evenly distributed hosting than the 1950 finals in Brazil provided, when matches were concentrated in the south-east and south. As a result the tournament will require significant long-distance travel for teams. Brazil opens the tournament against Croatia, played in Sao Paulo on the 12th of June, and the final will be played on the 13th of July in Rio de Janeiro.
