South Florida is the gateway to Brazil for World Cup travel.

Miami International Airport (MIA) spokesman Greg Chin says people coming through MIA will now be able to enjoy soccer-themed attractions on their way to the games.

There are exhibits, Brazilian music and dancing, and mini-soccer fields to entertain passengers as well as Nintendo soccer game stations.

Chin says 100,000 passengers are expected to go through MIA as they head to the games.

MIA offers service to 10 of the 12 host cities, so it will be the busiest U.S. gateway to Brazil for the next 31 days.

Local businesses are also planning on cashing in on World Cup fever, since the area is considered a way station for both travelers and teams.
