On Friday, Dec. 6, at 1 p.m. local time (4 p.m. GMT; 11 a.m. ET), the draw for the 2014 World Cup will be staged at the Costa do Sauipe resort in the Brazilian state of Bahia.
As we have learnt over the years, FIFA like to make a huge spectacle out of an event that is essentially 32 coloured balls being pulled from clear bowls.
The draw is usually preceded and proceeded by celebrities and world famous musical acts, who are sometimes even involved in the draw itself.
Here are the hosts, celebrity guests, music and world football stars you can look forward to next week.
