Came to watch the World Cup quarter final game, it was amazing to actually be there. Even though we were on the sunny side and it was hot I do not regret this once in a life time opportunity

Visited finally the famous Maracana stadium during the Brasil World Cup in July 2014. Shame I could not get tickets to enter the stadium for any of the world cup matches played in Rio. However, visited the surrounding stadium facilities a day before the Brasil World Cup Final on the 12 July 2014 and it was awesome and fantastic. The... More

I got to visit this stadium during the World Cup 2014 to catch a game. It was great! I think they usually have tours of the stadium, which is really different from any stadium I have seen in the US. If you are catching a game here, you're going to have a blast! Great views all the way from the... More

The Maracana is a must when in Rio. Transport links are excellent. The service in the food courts is OK, no better or worse than any other sporting venue.

Had the great experience of watching the FIFA World Cup Round of 16 Match between Colombia 2 and Uruguay 0. Unbelievable atmosphere, what a feeling to watch your national team win in a World Cup at this temple of football!

I was there. I got to see "my" team, Germany, win the World Cup here. What else is there to say? I am pretty sure that, many years from now (hopefully), while on my death bed, I will remember July 13, 2014 and my, by then old and wrinkly face, will use up all the energy that is left to... More

A stadium that mixes the amenities of the modern world with a real sense of history. Went to the Belgium v Russia game at the 2014 World Cup - a superb experience. Great views from every seat.

We watched the world cup final here and we had an absolutely amazing time during the game and in the fan zones around it... however I am not sure I would go to the stadium itself as an attraction if there wasn't an event going on

My husband and son just had to go see the hallowed ground! Unfortunately Brasil did not get to lift their 6th World Cup here.
