I came here 5 times during the 2014 world cup, and having been here many times as a child before the renovation, I can confirm the rumors that this stadium has lost its charm. Still, it had now become a standard modern-day football stadium, which is both good and bad. The atmosphere is no good, but the facilities are decent,... More

Watched France and Ecquador play in the WC 2014. What an experience! Great new stadium! Easy access, had a blast in the hospitality suites outside the stadium. Big thanks to Continental SA.

Every visit to Rio should include a game experience at Maracana. It's a historical stadium that is completely renovated and rivals and modern facility.

Seeing a World Cup game is already amazing but to have the privilege of watching one in this holy place of soccer is just amazing. Security was crazy tight but once inside it was all about the game. Staff was a lil uneducated regarding seat locations but in all fairness the place was so packed.

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!
