Brazil clubs seek alternate stadiums

SAO PAULO -- Brazilian clubs are scrambling to find places to host their Brazilian league matches because FIFA has taken over many of the country's stadiums and training centers for the World Cup.

Beginning this week, clubs are not allowed to play at the 12 stadiums that will be used during the World Cup, nor at the venues that will be used for training.

Nearly 30 league matches had to be altered for the last four rounds before the World Cup break. Of the 20 clubs in the first division, 14 are having to relinquish home-field advantage.

The only World Cup stadium holding a league match before the tournament is the Itaquerao, but only because FIFA requested another test event at the troubled venue in Sao Paulo.
