World Cup 2014 stadiums: Itaipava Arena Fonte Nova

World Cup 2014 stadiums: Itaipava Arena Fonte Nova


Salvador is Brazil’s party capital, and it’s also known for its passionate football fans.

Brazil’s third-largest city after Sao Paulo and Rio de Janeiro, Salvador will host six World Cup matches at the 52,000-capacity Arena Fonte Nova.

Origin of name: Otávio Mangabeira was the Governor of Bahia when the stadium was inaugurated, in 1951.

Fonte Nova means "new fountain" in Portuguese; the stadium is situated near Itororó Dam (see photo above), where there used to be water fountains for public use.

The Itaipava Arena Fonte Nova officially Complexo Esportivo Cultural Professor Octávio Mangabeira is a football-only stadium for the 2014 FIFA World Cup.

The stadium is located in Salvador, Bahia and it has a maximum capacity of about 55,000 people.
The stadium was built in place of the older Estádio Fonte Nova stadium.

The stadium has quite bad reputation when in November 2007 part of the structure collapsed during a match, killing seven people. Costs to rebuild the old stadium were high, and results doubtful. When FIFA announced Salvador as one host city, the decision was made to implode the old stadium and rebuild from scratch.

An group of architects from Brunswick, Germany, which also redesigned the old Hanover stadium into a modern arena for the 2006 Cup has been selected after bidding.

From 2013, the brewery Itaipava from Grupo Petropolis, will sign the naming rights of the new arena "Itaipava Arena Fonte Nova" under a sponsorship agreement until the year 2023, amounting to $ 100 million. This was the first naming rights agreement signed to 2014 World Cup stadiums.

The stadium was inaugurated on April 7, 2013, with a Campeonato Baiano game in which Vitória defeated Bahia 5-1. The first player to score a goal in the stadium was Vitória's Renato Cajá.

During this match, some supporters weren't able to see the game completely due to some blind spots. Also, the stadium had excessive dust and some puddles. The company responsible for the stadium, owned by Grupo OAS and Odebrecht, said it was aware of the problems and they will be fixed.

The stadium’s construction was plagued by delays, however, and a small part of its roof collapsed On May 27, 2013 following heavy rain less than three weeks before the World Cup warm-up tournament.

The stadium cover takes nearly 6 miles of cables and weights nearly 2,000 tons.

The Itaipava Arena Fonte Nova stadium will also be one of the venues used for the football competition of the 2016 Summer Olympics.
