With just days to go before the first kick off, Hyundai Motor Company, Official Partner of the 2014 FIFA World Cup Brazil, delivered over one thousand vehicles for the ground transportation to organizers of the sporting event in Brazil, while unveiling the branding decorations of the 32 buses that will transport the teams of the qualified nations.

Hyundai officials delivered the branded team buses and the 1,021 sedans and vans including the Equus, Genesis, Azera, Santa Fe, Sonata, Tucson (ix35), Veloster, H1, H100, and Brazil-exclusive HB20. The vehicles will be used to transport FIFA officials, national teams, members of the organizing committee, referees, and media representatives throughout the duration of the tournament.

The 32 team buses are decorated with national team colors, flags and the slogan “Be There With Hyundai.” Furthermore, each bus will be escorted by a specially-decorated Grand Santa Fe, Hyundai Motor’s leading SUV model, as part of the company’s exclusive sponsorship privileges, according to the automaker.

In addition to the delivery of cars, Hyundai Motor will operate a complete Service Team at all World Cup Stadiums and FIFA facilities to ensure the best service support and assistance to drivers and fleet of cars during the entire event. Prior to the delivery, Hyundai’s Service Team trained over 1,000 drivers to become familiar with each model, as well as learn about maintenance, safe driving techniques and routes. Beyond the service support, drivers can also depend on Hyundai Motor’s nation-wide dealer network for dedicated support, according to the automaker.
