MARACANA STADIUM _ 0019

IMG_3818

Maracanã Stadium in Rio de Janeiro is of the most iconic soccer temples in the world. It was built for the World Cup of 1950, and fully renovated for the World Cup 2014. The main entrance with the statue of Bellini is where panoramic city tours stop for a quick photo. But, if you are interested, you can visit the stadium itself on guided visits offered daily! And, if you are lucky, even enjoy a match in person.

IMG_3678

It was Francesc Miró-Sans, president of FC Barcelona in 1953, that took the initiative to build a new stadium after an electoral campaign. There was a strong cry to build a new stadium for the all mighty Catalan club. The campaign was represented with the slogan: “We need, we want and we’ll have a new stadium!”. After just 4 months upon approval of the project, works started at Camp Nou, the New Stadium as it is named in Catalan. The stadium was finally inaugurated in 1957. Officially it is named L’Estadi.
