The Adidas Brazuca ball was used at this World Cup, and for the first time ever, goal-line technology was used in the tournament to assist match officials. Also, the vanishing spray, a water-based spray that simply vanishes after a minute, was used for markings to be made for free kicks and the 10-yard line for defenders to stand during free kicks. All teams were assured of at least USD 8 million in prize money, with the amount increasing as they progressed through the tournament. The winning team of FIFA 2014 pocketed USD 35 million.

The cumulative audience at the venues for the month-long tournament was around 3.4 million. This was besides the billions of viewers around the world who were glued to their TV sets, either at home or at the nearest bars. This Buzzle write-up was the complete package as far as the 2014 FIFA World cup fixtures, results, and venues were concerned. Congratulations to Germany, who were truly the best team of the tournament, and actually played as a team without replying on just 1 player, like most other teams. See you in 4 years time in Russia for the 2018 FIFA World Cup.
