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.

Estádio Independência ( Minas Em Cores )

The Estádio Raimundo Sampaio, more commonly known as Independência (Portuguese: Independence), is a football stadium located in the Horto neighborhood of Belo Horizonte, Minas Gerais, Brazil. It was built in 1950 for the FIFA World Cup, held in Brazil. Initially its capacity was for 30,000 people. After the reconstruction between 2010-2012, the capacity is for 25,000 people. It belonged to the defunct Sete de Setembro Futebol Clube, which is why the stadium is called Independence (the name of the team, September 7, is Brazil’s Independence Day). The stadium is currently property of América Futebol Clube, but has been leased to the Minas Gerais state government for 20 years, as counterpart for the injection of public resources to demolish the old stadium, and built the new one.
Estádio Independência is the second most important stadium in Belo Horizonte, only behind Mineirão. Its formal name honors Raimundo Sampaio, a former chairman of Sete de Setembro. América and Atlético play their home games in this stadium.
