History and description

Arena Castelão, originally called Estádio Governador Plácido Aderaldo Castelo, opened on the 11th of November 1973 with a match between Ceará and Fortaleza (0-0).

The stadium was built at the initiative of state governor Plácido Castelo, after whom the stadium got subsequently named. It soon got referred to as Castelão though, after the area it stands in.

Castelão initially consisted of one small continuous oval-shaped tier and large ramps at both sides. The stadium did not have cover yet and could hold about 70,000 fans.

In 1980, the second tier was extended over the entire stadium, and soon after an estimated 118,000 people attended an international between Brazil and Uruguay.

The stadium received cover in 2002 and subsequent renovations brought back capacity to about 60,000.
Not much later, Castelão got selected as one of the playing venues of the 2014 World Cup, and therefore required a more substantial redevelopment.

Works started early 2011 and involved the demolition and reconstruction of the bottom tier, the installation of a new roof, and the refurbishment of the rest of the stadium. The stadium officially reopened on the 16th of December 2012. At the same time it got renamed Arena Castelão.

Arena Castelão is scheduled to host six matches at the World Cup, which include one round of 16 match and a quarter-final.

Getting there

Arena Castelão is located in the south of the city of Fortaleza, about 10 kilometres from the Dragão do Mar area and nearby Iracema beach and a similar distance from the beaches in the east.

Fortaleza has recently opened a new metro, though it does not pass Castelão directly. Stop Parangaba is somewhat in the direction, and you can take a taxi from there or inquire about buses.

From the centre one can take bus 666 to get to the stadium. Take the bus from the Rua Pedro I at the corner of the Rua Solon Pinheiro. Take the bus that goes to Jardim Castelão.

Fortaleza’s airport lies also toward the south, approximately 3.5 kilometres north of the stadium, and is therefore a reasonable taxi ride away.

Address: Avenida Alberto Craveiro s/n, Castelão, Fortaleza
