04/24 11:25 CDT Valcke: Brazilian cities must organize fanfests Valcke: Brazilian cities must organize fanfests TALES AZZONI AP Sports Writer SAO PAULO (AP) --- FIFA Secretary General Jerome Valcke is sending a blunt warning to Brazilian World Cup organizers, saying all 12 host cities have "no choice" and "must" organize their own fanfest. The warning comes as officials in the northeastern city of Recife reiterate they still don't know whether they will stage a fanfest, which allows fans without tickets to watch matches for free on large screens in public areas. Valcke said on Thursday the fanfests are not optional, they are a requirement from FIFA. Football's governing body claims that all cities signed contracts agreeing to the fanfests, and has threatened to sue the ones which don't stage them. Valcke said he hopes the cities that have yet to finalize their fanfest plans "are listening to what I'm saying now."
