The Arena Corinthians is a sports stadium located in São Paulo, Brazil that is owned, operated and used by Corinthians. It has a seating capacity of 49,205, making it the fifth-largest stadium used by teams in the top tier of the Brazilian League and the eleventh-largest in Brazil.
It hosted six matches during the 2014 FIFA World Cup, including the opening match on 12 June 2014. Because of a requirement for it to have at least 65,000 seats for the World Cup opening match, temporary seats were added to the stadium for the tournament. The temporary seats started to be removed shortly after its last World Cup match.
In 2016, a scandal arose, when Emílio Odebrecht stated that the stadium was only built because former president Lula asked for it and the stadium was built as a "gift" for him, during Lula's and Dilma's governments. Under PT governments from 2003 to 2015, the Odebrecht group's revenues jumped from 17 to 132 billion.

  • Modern stadium. Easy access. Unfortunately it's a square open corner stadium, but the stands have a very good angle on the pitch, also in the upmost rows.
  • A very secure place. Getting in and out of the stadium is very easy, especially because it's right next to the subway station.
