  • An amazing stadium. We had the chance of watching the Corinthians play another team. The stadium is big comfortable, and we watched the game at sunset so the lighting was spectacular. I highly recommend going, the audience has a bunch of chants that they sing and it’s quite amazing.
  • Amazing stadium! The enthusiasm in this place is contagious. Great family event. For tourist, this is super safe because there is security and police all over the place and everyone is searched prior entry into the stadium. If you are a soccer lover, coming to this place will do you justice. What blew my mind is that for the whole 90 minutes, no one sat down. Just an amazing experience overall
