SAO PAULO, BRAZIL (NBC) - Over 600 performers are training in Sao Paulo, Brazil, for the opening ceremony of the 2014 World Cup next month June.

The FIFA World Cup Opening Ceremony will showcase the diversity and beauty of the host country, Brazil.

The Executive Director of the Local Organizing Committee said preparations for the ceremony began four years ago.

She said the timing of the event, during daylight hours, and the need to protect the grass on the soccer field were special problems organizers had overcome.

Organizers say the ceremony will last about 25 minutes, and performers will get together for 84 hours of rehearsals before the event.

The focus of the ceremony will be a central "living" ball with more than 90,000 LED light clusters.
