The qualifying has already started in some places, so I thought we should get this thread started, even though we're all focused on the WWC right now. What we know so far: Teams (12): Host (1): Brazil CONCACAF (2); tbd in beginning of 2016 CONMEBOL (1): Colombia CAF (2); tbd later in 2015 UEFA (3); decided by top 3 teams from the 2015 WWC so to be decided soon! If England finishes in the top 3 UEFA teams, their spot will be passed down to the 4th team as Great Britain will not enter a football team. AFC (2); tbd in 2016 OFC (1); tbd in October when winner of Pacific Games has a play-off versus NZ Stadiums (7): Itaquera Arena (São Paulo) Maracanã Stadium (Rio de Janeiro) Olympic Stadium (Rio de Janeiro) Fonte Nova Arena (Salvador) Amazônia Arena (Manaus) Mané Garrincha Stadium (Brasília) Mineirão (Belo Horizonte). Tickets are already open to Brazilian residents for the matches in São Paulo.
