The inauguration party was held at the Arena Corinthians stadium in Sao Paulo and, although it only lasted 26 minutes (data that has made it the shortest opening ceremony of all the soccer World Cups), it had a cost that exceeded nine million Dollars.

One of the main attractions of the ceremony was the giant LED ball (with the same details of the Brazuca that is the official soccer ball of the World Cup), the same one that was built with seven thousand nits of luminosity and ninety thousand clusters and that It remained active throughout the ceremony, the same as the organizers indicated, it was designed to be a tribute to Brazil and its main treasures: Dance, Soccer and Nature.

Jennifer Lopez, Pitbull and Claudia Leitte were the ones who sang the song of the World Cup "Ole, Ola" and, although many think that the audio system was terrible and almost not heard, it was finally learned that they sang with playback.

The president of Brazil, Dilma Rousseff, like his pair in FIFA, Joseph Blatter, decided not to give an inaugural address because of the fear of public reaction due to his discontent.
