I'm not a huge soccer fan, but coming to Brazil it was something I wanted to experience. My friends and I went to a Botafogo vs Vasco game. Huge, beautiful stadium. Brazilians are crazy about their soccer! Loved the energy of the fans. There were drummers and many people with their teams flag being waved the whole game while chanting.... More

Sit in VIP seats, TV crew sections and walk from dressing rooms through tunnel onto side of pitch. Great experience and well worth an hour stop off.

I have seen a foot-ball game there. The stadium can contain 200 000 people. Seing a game with such a crowd is thrilling because Brazilian do not stay quiet.

The stadium is beautiful from the inside, especially if you're in the "acesso UERJ" lounge. In that lounge, the food is good, at least for stadium standards. And the staff are SOOOOOO nice! I'd definitely recommend going to a match, even though the one i watched was sooooooo boring (Flamengo x Vasco da Gama).

The new stadium is quite good. The access is not that great but the interior is good. For those who really are into football is a must see.

If you follow football then this is a must really. Easy to access on the subway. We joined a tour in English at 11am, they run every 2 hours. Although we felt it was a little rushed (an hour) you get to go to the VIP area, press boxes, pitch level and into the changing rooms. There is a decent... More

Finally,I did it ! It's is one of the most prestigious symbols of Brazil and of soccer in the history of soccer.It has been renovated,of course,more comfortable and modern.And the final of the FIFA WC in Maracana is simply ultimate.

You must visit it during your trip to Rio! The guided tour is more expensive, but worth it! Just remember that you only enter until 12 a.m on game days!
