2014 Fifa World Cup: Germany to build training complex in Brazil

Three-time World Cup winners Germany will use a purpose-built training base in Brazil during next summer’s finals.

The under-construction venue, which will be developed by a Munich property firm, will cover 15,000 square metres and will have 60 bedrooms, a training pitch as well as a fitness centre.

Analysis

“Campo Bahia, as the German football authorities are calling it, has all the comforts of a seaside holiday village.

“It is still under construction amid the palms on the sand-dunes of north eastern Brazil but the basic structures are there: a circle of white buildings for accommodation around a pool, a press centre plus a training pitch for the national side. It is well located for an airport to give short flights to Germany’s initial fixtures.

“According to the German association, the work is being organised by a German entrepreneur who said the facilities would be “optimal” for the team. There’s been a lot of controversy about whether facilities will be adequate for the World Cup. In November, a crane collapsed at one stadium still being built.

“The Germans are leaving nothing to chance. They’ve been to Brazil, decided what they need and are now building it themselves.”

The German Football Association (DFB) said it is not funding the project.

A football youth academy and an orphanage will also be built on the site, 30km north of Porto Seguro.

The DFB said the Campo Bahia base is within two hours’ flight of the three cities – Salvador, Fortaleza and Recife – where Germany will play their Group G games at the tournament.

Joachim Low’s team face Portugal on 16 June, Ghana on 21 June and the United States on 26 June.

“Bearing in mind the size of the country and the considerable distances between each tournament venue, it was important for us to minimise the strain of travelling to and from matches as much as possible,” said Germany national team manager Oliver Bierhoff.

“Acclimatisation and recovery will also play a major role at this World Cup, and our camp offers ideal conditions in these respects.

“Due to the early kick-off times and the heat and high humidity expected in Salvador, Fortaleza and Recife, we looked for a base where the players could adapt effectively to the kind of things they can expect to encounter during each match.”
