PICTURES: Natal, the little beach City that's about to get World Cup-ified

Posted On Monday, 30th December 2013

Watch some of the exciting beach scenes of Natal, the venue which will host Ghana’s 2014 World Cup opener against USA. 

On the edge of Rio Grande do Norte, a northern state in Brazil, there’s a relatively quiet little city called Natal. Average activities there include fishing for things like shark Cartiledge (a lucrative export) and giving buggy tours around town– tourists only truly discovered Natal in the 80s.

Needless to say, this beachy little enclave is about to get a real shakeup when the FIFA World Cup steamrolls into town this summer.

Natal is home to many football teams, so it’s natural the city would host a few rounds of the World Cup this summer.

In June, Natal’s residents will trade long, quiet days on the beach for the hustle and hurry of sports-obsessed tourists.
