FIFA postpones Sao Paulo event

Brazil's World Cup ambassador Pelé says he's concerned about the country's airports less than 10 weeks before the tournament begins.
Pele spoke about stadium troubles in Curitiba ahead of the World Cup in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil on Wednesday.

SAO PAULO -- The final test event at the troubled World Cup stadium in Sao Paulo has been postponed because of concerns from local authorities.

FIFA says a test match scheduled for May 29, a Thursday, has been moved to the following Sunday to avoid disrupting the city's ''operational routine'' on a working day.

FIFA said in a statement on Wednesday that it also decided to stage the game on a weekend to ''ensure it attracts more than 50,000'' fans needed to properly test the venue.

Less than 40,000 people attended the first test match at the Itaquerao stadium in Sao Paulo last weekend, when the 20,000 temporary seats being added for the opening game of the tournament couldn't be used.

Nearly 70,000 people are expected for the opener, Brazil-Croatia, on June 12.
