World Cup 2014 stadium: The Estádio do Maracanã.

World Cup 2014 stadium: The Estádio do Maracanã.


The Estádio do Maracanã (English: Maracanã Stadium), officially Estádio Jornalista Mário Filho is a football stadium in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. And this is one of the most famous stadiums in the football history.

Owned by the Rio de Janeiro state government, it is named after the Rio Maracanã, a river in Rio de Janeiro.

The stadium was constructed for the 1950 World Cup hosted by Brazil.

Construction of the stadium began in August 1948 and was completed almost two years later. Maracanã officially opened on 16 June 1950 with a friendly between a selection of players from Rio de Janeiro and São Paulo.

Eight days later, Maracanã hosted the opening match of the 1950 World Cup between Brazil and Mexico (4-0). It would go on to host four more matches in the first round group stage and a further three in the second round stage, among which the deciding final match between Uruguay and Brazil (2-1).

The official attendance of the final was about 173,000 paying spectators, but it is estimated that more than 200,000 witnessed the game live from the stands. At that period it was the worlds’ largest stadium.

The stadium was officially renamed in 1966 following the death of Brazilian journalist Mário Filho, but most people have kept referring to the stadium as Maracanã.

Since then, it has mainly been used for football matches between the major football clubs in Rio de Janeiro, including Botafogo, Flamengo, Fluminense, and Vasco da Gama. It has also hosted a number of concerts and other sporting events.

Although the paid attendance at the final game of the 1950 FIFA World Cup was 199,854 (being the world's largest stadium by capacity, when it was inaugurated), the stadium currently seats 78,838 spectators, making it the largest stadium in Brazil and in South America.

The Maracanã was partially rebuilt in preparation for the 2013 FIFA Confederations Cup, the 2014 World Cup, which will be the first one held in Brazil since 1950, and also the opening and closing ceremonies of the 2016 Summer Olympics and Paralympics. The stadium will also host the final of the 2014 World Cup.

Building works started in 2010 and involved the complete rebuilding of the bottom tier and the installation of a new roof with a capacity of 79,000 seats as a result.

The stadium held a test game on April 27, 2013, with teams led by Ronaldo and Bebeto. The first official match was on June 2, 2013, when Brazil drew 2–2 with England in a friendly match.
