Oi, Brazil's Largest Telecom, Becomes FIFA 2014 Sponsor

Brazil’s largest telecommunications company, Oi, has signed an agreement with FIFA to be the first Brazilian sponsor for the 2014 FIFA World Cup Brazil.

Oi is the largest telecommunications company in Brazil, offering local and long-distance voice transmission, mobile telephony, data communication, internet and entertainment. The agreement, which begins in 2011 running through 2014, will make Oi the official FIFA World Cup telecommunications service provider for the 2014 FIFA World Cup Brazil.

"Efficient and reliable communications are a vital and integral part of everything we do in the modern world, and to approach a FIFA World Cup without the help and expertise of a major telecommunications provider would be unthinkable. We are therefore delighted to announce that Oi will be joining FIFA as a global sponsor for the 2014 FIFA World Cup Brazil," said Thierry Weil, Director of FIFA’s Marketing Division.

"Already Brazil’s largest telecommunications company, Oi has a rapidly-expanding reputation throughout Latin America and represents a perfect fit within the portfolio of FIFA’s World Cup Sponsors. We’re especially pleased that Oi is committed to continuing its emphasis on the sporting development of its own youth as this is obviously something that remains extremely close to our own hearts here at FIFA."
