World Cup 2014: Stunning Images of Brazil's 12 Stadiums

World Cup 2014 looms larger with the announcement of each stadium being delivered. This summer's Confederations Cup will put Brazil in the spotlight and it will stay there through the World Cup and the Olympics to follow in 2016.

Six World Cup stadiums will be in use during the Confederations Cup, most notably the legendary Maracanã in Rio, which has been fully refurbished and will host a second World Cup final next summer.

Some of the 12 that will be deployed for the World Cup have been built from scratch; others renovated to be brought up to modern specifications.

Judging by the images you're about to see, the full dozen will provide a spectacular backdrop for the greatest show on earth.

Stadium information from Copa2014.gov.br and FIFA.com. All stadium capacity numbers from FIFA.com.
