From the opening goal from Didi, the inventor of the “banana kick”, in 1950, to the goals that will move the planet in the seven games that will host the World Cup 2014, including the grand final, the Maracanã has always been a temple of emotions and many joys. It has hosted the largest audience in the history of soccer (Brazil - Paraguay, 1969, about 200 thousand people), the thousandth goal by Pelé (1969), the 1950 World Cup and the Pan American Games in 2007, in addition to unforgettable shows by names like Frank Sinatra, Madonna, Paul McCartney and the Rolling Stones.
In 2016 Maracanã will host the opening and closing of the Olympic Games and is always with open doors for everyone, now fully refurbished and increasingly prepared to receive great matches. With its 78 thousand seats, it emerges as one of the most modern and safest stadiums in the world, offering a new experience of entertainment and leisure with the thrill of the “Maraca” of usually. Enjoy the convenience of public entries by the new access ramps, the proximity of the lawn and the vibe of the crowd in the stands with comfortable retractable seats. Come on! The house is yours! The Maracanã is for all.
