FIFA Secretary General Jerome Valcke arrives in a taxi during the 2014 FIFA World Cup Host City Tour in Manaus, Brazil on Feb. 16, 2014. He was riding in a General Motors Co. Chevrolet, and the event’s automobile sponsor is Hyundai Motor Co. A local official covered all the logos with tape, even though there was no contractual reason for doing so. An official from the local organizing committee did it as a precaution, not knowing that it wasn’t necessary, a spokesman said.
