World Class Headaches for a World Cup Tournament

Sao Paulo Transit Strike Threatens Tournament Kick-Off (UPDATE)

UPDATE: Late Wednesday, Sao Paulo transit workers ended their three day strike, meaning the city’s transit system will be up and running for the start of the World Cup. But as VOA reports, although the strike is over, lingering effects could make it difficult to get around.

Original story:

The World Cup is only a day away, but despite all the preparation and planning, a transit strike could have a major impact on the tournament.

As VOA reports, transit protests in Sao Paulo – the site of tomorrow’s opening match – have caused numerous traffic problems. But transit workers have agreed to meet today to possibly end the strike, which would open the city’s public transportation system just in time.

Will the strike be resolved? Or will it impact the start of the tournament? Follow VOA Football on Facebook and Twitter to see.
