SAO PAULO, May 18 (Xinhua) -- Local organizers have hailed as a success the first official test event at the Itaquerao stadium, which will stage the World Cup opener between Brazil and Croatia next month.
The venue in Sao Paulo and Arena Pantanal in Brazil's western city of Cuiaba opened on Sunday by hosting Brazilian Serie A matches.
At the Itaquerao, Figueirense upset hosts Corinthians 1-0 while Atletico Mineiro defeated Santos 2-1 at Arena Pantanal.
Despite a capacity to seat 70,000 fans, only 40 nike air vapormax scontate ,000 were allowed into the Itaquerao on Sunday due to unfinished construction work.
Local World Cup organizing committee director Ricardo Trade said the Sao Paulo venue was on track to be ready for the World Cup, to be played from June 12 to July 13.
"It was one of the best tests that we have carried out," Trade said.
"We can't say that everything is 100%. There were some leaks in some areas and an elevator didn't work, but these things can happen even in our own homes. Now we have to work to get things right."
The Itaquerao will stage six World Cup matches and Arena Pantanal four.
Brazil's World Cup stadiums have been hit by construction delays and ongoing safety concerns.
At least three venues - in Sao Paulo, Cuiaba and Curitiba - are yet to be fully ready for football's signature event, despite a December 2013 deadline issued by football's governing body FIFA.
Safety concerns have been raised by the deaths of eight stadium workers, including three at the Itaquerao in the past six months.
BEIJING, July 4 (Xinhua) -- China's 21 major securities brokers convened on Saturday nike air max 97 uomo scontate , vowing to "firmly" stabilize the country's stock market, which has been shaken by continued plunges.
The brokers will spend no less than 120 billion yuan (19.62 billion U.S. dollars), or 15 percent of their total net assets, on exchange traded funds (ETF) that track the performance of blue chip stocks, according to a joint statement.
These firms will not sell the stocks they held as of July 3 and will buy more, at their own digression, when the benchmark Shanghai Composite Index is below 4,500 points.
They will also actively repurchase stocks in their own company from the market and encourage major stock holders to increase their stakes.
China's top three brokers -- CITIC Securities nike air max 97 scontate , Haitong Securities and Guotai Junan Securities -- were among the 21 signatories of the statement.
The Securities Association of China said in a statement that it appreciated the brokers' decision and asked all brokerages to view the economic situation and capital market in a correct way and take similar actions to underpin the ailing market.
Zhang Shuyu, a finance researcher with the University of International Business and Economics, said the brokers' move will likely cushion the downward pressure on the market.
The brokers' meeting on Saturday is the latest attempt to break the market's three-week losing streak, which has cut the benchmark Shanghai Composite Index by more than 28 percent.
Last Saturday, China's central bank lowered both the interest rate and reserve requirement ratio for banks to inject liquidity into the market.
On Wednesday, the Shanghai and Shenzhen stock exchanges announced a roughly 30-percent cut in stock transaction fees.
On the same day, the China Securities Depository and Clearing Company announced a reduction in stock transfer fees by about 33 percent from Aug. 1.
On Thursday, the China Securities Regulatory Commission (CSRC) said it will investigate suspected manipulation of the stock market.
On Friday nike air max 2017 scontate , the CSRC said it will cut the number of IPOs in July in order to reduce the supply of stocks.
