FIFA President Sepp Blatter has pledged to give at least $100 million from profits back to Brazil after protests over the high cost of staging the World Cup, reports the Associated Press.
FIFA gave $100 million for development projects after the 2010 World Cup in South Africa but had not previously said it would establish a similar fund after next year's tournament.
Speaking in Rio Di Janeiro, Blatter said: "an amount like that or even higher will be possible to have here."
