The Municipal Government of the Brazilian city of São Paulo has announced that it would also avail itself of the terms of the "Lei da Copa" and declare June 12, 2014, the day of the inauguration of the upcoming world cup soccer championship, as a one-off non-working municipal public holiday.

In addition, São Paulo mayor, Fernando Haddad, left the door open to the later declaration of 5 additional one-off non-working municipal public holidays.

Earlier this year (13-Mar-2014), the Municipal Government of the Brazilian city of Rio de Janeiro had declared 3 one-off non-working municipal public holidays in June and July 2014; June 18 and 25, 2014, as half-day public holidays, and July 4, 2014, as a full-day public holiday.

The "Lei da Copa", gazetted 2 years ago (07-Jun-2012), allows Brazilian states and municipalities to declare one-off public holidays whenever a FIFA World Cup game occurs in their jurisdiction in 2014.
