Common name: Estadio Maracana.

Maximum capacity: More than 200,000 people in the football World Cup final of 1950.

Milestones: World Cup of the Year 1950 - 1000th Goal of Pelé.

MARACANA STADIUM INAUGURATION:

The legendary Maracana Stadium opened it´s doors on 24 July 1950. Its original name was "Estadio Municipal", (Municipal Stadium), but in 1964, acquired its actual name, "Mário Filho Stadium", in honor of journalist founder of the "Jornal dos Sports".

However, for the Cariocas his name was and remains Maracana Stadium.

 

 

MARACANA STADIUM ORIGIN OF THE NAME:

Maracana was a bird that lived in the area where today is located the Maracana neighborhood, and also the Maracana Stadium.

MARACANA STADIUM ORIGIN

The Maracana Stadium was built with the aim of hosting the soccer world cup 1950. Unfortunately (for Brazil), Brazil lost the final of the World Cup of 1950, against Uruguay, in what was, and still is, one of the biggest football and sporting upsets known. This sporting fact gainde the name of "Maracanazo".

MARACANA STADIUM - LOCATION:

Maracana Stadium is located in the northern part of the city of Rio de Janeiro. It is easily accessible, since it has metro and bus stations in front.

From the neighborhoods of the southern area of Rio de Janeiro (Copacabana, Ipanema, Flamengo, Botafogo), you reach the Maracana Stadium by subway or bus in 40 minutes.

MARACANA STADIUM TODAY:

Football is the national sport in Brazil and the Maracana Stadium is it´s major symbol. Today, after several reforms introduced by FIFA, and respected by Brazil, in virtue of its desire to host the football World Cup of 2014 (which in fact it will host), Maracana Stadium had it´s capacity drastically reduced to approximately 75,000 people seated. The Maracana Stadium was once able able to accommodate 183 341 people in the game where Pele made his 1000th goal, and over 200,000 in the football World Cup final of 1950.

MARACANA STADIUM VISITS AND TOURS:

You can visit the Maracana Stadium daily, mondays to mondays, between 9 and 17 pm, except on match days. The visits are suspended 4 hours in advance to the beginning of football games.

The tour begins at the entry of the Maracana Stadium, at a place called "calçada da fama", in english "walk of fame", spot where the feet of the top football players that passed through Maracana Stadium are recorded on the floor.

Inside the stadium, panels and murals explain the Maracana stadium construction and the history of Brazilian, and world football.

Afterwards you go up to the 6th floor where you can enjoy a panoramic view of the Maracana Stadium.

Finally, after going through the locker rooms, you can actually visit the pitch of the Maracana Stadium.

Maracana Stadium is also used for recitals and music shows. Frank Sinatra was here, just like Paul McCartney, and even the Rolling Stones played several times at the Maracana Stadium. Next to the Maracana Stadium we find the Olympic Stadium, Maracanazinho, Celio Barros.
