Xbox One heads to South America for the World Cup, with Destination Brazil

Xbox One heads to South America for the World Cup, with Destination Brazil

We’ve now entered the month of June and, more importantly, it’s a World Cup year. Football (or soccer to those in the US) fans will flock to TVs, as well as making the trek to the host nation, in this case, Brazil. The South American country, which is home to the Amazon, will also be the setting for the 2014 tournament. 

As with US football (AKA the NFL), Microsoft plans to play a big part. While we already knew of FIFA 2014 adding content for the World Cup, now Microsoft has announced a dedicated app, titled “Destination Brazil”. 

“Access Destination Brazil on the Xbox One dashboard to launch Brazil Now, a new app that snaps next to live TV to enhance your match viewing experience, enable you to play ‘EA SPORTS FIFA 14 Ultimate Team: FIFA World Cup’ (EA ‘FIFA 14’ game, sold separately, is required to play) and check out various series about your favorite football clubs from Copa90”, Microsoft says in its announcement. 

The app will also feature an original show, which debuts on June 15th, called “Every Street United”. The show will be available exclusively through the Destination Brazil app. 

Time to get ready for the big matches, dig out your foam fingers, fire up your Xbox One and TV. We are less than two weeks away from the first GOALLLLLLLLL!
