The gigantic Maracanã Stadium was built to open the 1950 World Cup and holds the record for the largest attendance at a World Cup Final thanks to the 199,854 paying spectators who crammed into the stadium.

If you’re after the intense Brazilian football experience complete with the drums, flares, and chanting, then get to a game; Rio's four main football teams all play here. Otherwise, the sports museum inside the stadium offers a calmer experience with photographs, cups and Pele's famous No. 10 jersey (enter at Gate 18).

Its official name is Mário Filho Stadium, but the arena is called Maracanã after the small river that runs alongside it. In the 1990s, the site was modified to become an all-seated stadium and now holds under 100,000 people.

Practical Info

The metro will take you to Estacio Maracanã where it is only a short walk to the stadium. At night a taxi might be a safer option.
