  • We saw Brazil v Chile here for a World Cup qualification match, what an experience, the Brazilian fans are so passionate and love their team. An amazing stadium as well.

  • 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
  • I did the Stadium tour and it was a nice experience, due to Covid the tour is a bit restricted to the main hall, pitch side view a bit of the stands and the away dressing room. I was a bit disappointed with the press room - found it quite small. The Stadium is amazing, massive and you can feel that football spirit alive on it. It's a good visit not a great, but if you are in Rio and enjoy football and have some spare time, I would recommend.
