Brasília's "small" National Stadium




I miss OneTimeOnly's comments on "IOC giving a pass to Brazil since Brazil have no ability to built one new stadium"

We are building 16 huge stadiums at the same time right now. -_-^_^;)

Salvador's Arena Fonte Nova

Big lift of the roof structure - Day 1/35




This post is specially to our colleagues of the International media, so "worried" with the possibility of Brazil not have the stadiums done for 2014 World Cup... <_<

^^Some are really big... I'm also impressed.

The Arena Corinthians will be HUGE, just like Brasília's National Stadium - a truly Colosseum!

PS: The comparision with London is unfair.

London hosted the Olympic Games, these are stadiums for World Cup... Different requiremente and legacies...

^^Actually, we are posting the pictures of Maracana in the Olympics thread, leaving this to the other stadiums around Brazil.


Olympics have football too and UK used big stadiums as well. :lol: Including the Wembley stadium which is bigger then any stadium at the Olympics or WC

What is so funny?

Talking about Maracanã here, a report from TV Globo show very recent footage from the stadium that will have 76,000 seats for the WC and Olympics and 86,000 seats after the events (only 4,000 less than Wembley).

maracana look big but why the capacity only 86000?

Fifa requirements on seats and comfort.

Without this, Maracana could have 150,000 in NCAA American Football style seats...

That its easier to compare the WC and SOG then Winter and Summer Medals.

Both comparisions are ridiculous.

How's Fortaleza only 13% from being completed? There seems much to be done ... =\ i think mineirao will be concluded first

Fortaleza have the esplanade and internal corridors/halls more advanced than Mineirao. But both are expected to be ready in December 2012: Fortaleza Dec 8th, Mineirao Dec 21th (celebrating the end of the world :P )

*The NCAA comparision was based in seats like this:

Yesterday, it started the works for the building and other facilities of Sao Paulo International Airport Terminal 3.

The new modern terminal will receive the international flights to the World Cup in 2014.

The three terminals that already exists (yes, weird, but Terminal 4 is already operating) will remain with domestic airliners (the Terminal 2 will receive international flights too from these companies).

How Terminal 3 will look like in 2014 (first phase) and 2022 (second phase):

This airport is now private (ACSA South Africa along with some Brazilian companies) and soon will be not operated by the govt anymore.


Rio de Janeiro International is under big refurbshment and upgrade in Terminal 2.

The works have been increased lately.

There are expectations Government will send Tom Jobim Airport to private companies operate it soon.

The President Juscelino Kubitscheck International Airport of Brasilia is also private now.

They just unveiled the project to be executed 'til the World Cup.

The works already started too.

This Airport is operated by Corporación America from Argentina and some Brazilian companies together.

^^ Biggest Roof "Compession Ring" for a Stadium in the planet.

BTW, the (biggest in the world) compression ring was just finished today



This stadium truly have a "National" capital feeling

People is calling it "The Colossus of the Cerrado"

It blends very well with Brasilia's monumental architecture and that use of pilotis is a trademark of the capital. My favorite stadium by far.

And let's hope they put a big humidifier in there because Brasília demands blood offerings from people's noses in june/july!!!
