Fortaleza World Cup Poster

The Fortaleza World Cup poster shows many objects, symbolizing the city very well. In the front you have the famous Fortaleza beaches with behind the modern skyscrapers. Behind them you see in the middle the Estádio Castelão which will host 6 World Cup matches. A huge football  comes out of the stadium, with each panel showing one of Fortaleza’s landmarks. You see for example the Cultural Center, the fortress Fortaleza do Monte, Ponte dos Ingleses (the English bridge), the cathedral and the old lighthouse of Mucuripe. This is one of the better World Cup Brazil posters.
