Natal changes routine to follow the World Cup

As everywhere else in Brazil, Natal is going to change the routine to follow the Brazilian team in the Germany World Cup.
In the first stage of the Cup, Ronaldinho and his peers will play on the 13th, 18th and 22nd, against Croatia, Australia and Japan. Then, if Brazil reaches the finals, there will be another 4 matches until the July 9th.

What's going to change?
Most public offices will be closed at the times Brazil is playing. When Brazil plays at 4pm (see schedule here), offices will close early; when Brazil plays at noon or 1pm, there will be an extended lunch time (but you'd better not count on them opening after the match).
Banks have officially announced that they will also be closed during Brazil matches.

Shops and restaurants which remain open will probably install a TV set. The shopping centers will probably install several TVs and possibly a large projection screen.

Transit will be busy right before the matches, when people will be driving home.
After the matches, if Brazil wins, expect celebrations on streets and meeting points (bars, restaurants, etc).
