Abstract Resume

Background: This study aims to analyze the relationship between the Brazilian Armed Forces (FFAA) in military management process for receiving mega sporting events in Brazil.
According to the Brazilian Federal Constitution of 1988 and the Statute of the military, the FFAA are for the defense of the country, the guarantee of the constitutional powers and, at the initiative
of any of these, of law and order. But the FFAA has been used in security for major sporting events in Brazil as a way to facilitate the implementation of these activities, even when private events
linked to FIFA, IOC and ODEPA. The aim of this study was to survey the sports mega-events that happened in Brazil in the last decade (2006-2016) and identify which made use of the FFAA as a key
element to provide public security and the realization of events.

Methods: The methodology used was the scenario analysis employed by Mataruna (2006) as a way to assess the environment, the time and the employment situation of crisis management.

Results: As a result met the 2007 Pan American Games as the precursor to the use of the FFAA acting together with the auxiliary forces and the newly created National Force. During the
5th Military World Games in 2010, the FFAA were employed in full security, as well as aid to intelligence, with the creation of the Center for Integrated Command and Control (CICC), which was a legacy
for the later events such as Cup World Soccer and the Olympic and Paralympic Games. The Navy acted protecting the coast and seas; The Brazilian Air Force in the control and protection of airspace; and
the army, control and protection of land borders and also in security areas close to stadiums. Through Intelligence Center, the auxiliary forces had all the support for the security implementation in
these mega events by the FFAA. The President of Brazil called the FFAA to act in the security of the Olympic and Paralympic Games Rio 2016 as a way to ensure the event. The armed forces will act
directly on the convoy batsmen, safety and protection authorities, and VIP delegations, as well as stadiums, airports and within the city.

Conclusions: Conclusion: The use of troops has given more frequently due to avoid problems related to safety and possible inconvenience caused by strike movements of
private security companies, as happened in 2010 in South Africa and in 2012 in London in which the FFAA of the respective countries were started up emergency plans. It was also concluded that the
Brazilian Armed Forces have important role beyond the defense of the national territory for the realization of sporting events. It was necessary to create language and specific management mechanisms
that meet the reality of policy institutions, in this case the IOC and FIFA, the reality of the country and above all, to guarantee a reduction in costs for the organization of the event.
