    Excellent for Soccer enthusiasts
    We visited during a weekday. There is a museum with displays honoring Brazilian soccer greats and history. For an additional fee, you get to experience scoring a goal on the pitch (actually a side pitch not the actual football pitch), getting a medal, and giving a press conference (simulated). Enjoyed the experience. Gift shops are pricey but have nice mementos for purchase

    what a game
    I watched the final between Botafogo and Flamengo in a cup final some years ago, and it was the most incredible football experience of my life.

    You gott ago at least once in your life
    I couldn't have had a more biased experience the two times I've been. First was for the opening ceremonies of the 2016 Summer Olympics and then a little later for the gold medal final mens football (soccer) match where Brasil defeated Germany, the team they had lost the World Cup to two years earlier. So you won't see anything quite so powerful but every event in this temple of sport is an emotion charged adventure

My husband and our 12-year old son visited the stadium as a paid experience purchased elsewhere on the internet. They attended a very important local football match with a local (Bruno) and they enjoyed it immensely. For any football/soccer fans, attending a game in Maracana is a must, just make sure that you go there with someone knowledgeable..

We initially did the tour of the stadium with the gate for this being conveniently located at the bottom of the ramp of the station. The tour itself was ok, probably 4 out of 5 stars. It is a self guided tour which has pros and cons. You could take things at your own pace but on the flip side there is a lot of reading to do. We wanted to buy tickets for the match the same week but annoyingly the ticket office is located all the way round the other side of the stadium. We managed to get two tickets at a reasonable price without too much fuss, although you will need ID to purchase if a foreign visitor. The match itself was a great experience, being right in the middle of the passionate fans. We left the game a few minutes early to catch the train back to Ipanema which was easy. Would recommend to any football enthusiast.

Legendary stadium is one of the most famous soccer/futbol venues in the world. Built for the 1950 World Cup and totally renovated for the 2014 World Cup and 2016 Summer Olympics. Has also hosted 3 Papal appearances and several major concerts. Has had as many as 200,000 attendees for some events. We stopped for a quick photo stop and drove around the perimeter in the rain. If you have time, some tour operators offer VIP tours of the stadium and have tickets for some matches by the major Rio pro soccer clubs.

The guide tour was great, the young lady who gave the presentation shared some great history on the Stadium and some insight on the 2014 World Cup in Brazil. The displays and tribute to "Pele" was outstanding. We even got a chance to go out to the stadium and tour the field.

Fantastic one in a lifetime experience, with an excellent and interesting museum. The staff was very helpful. the only minus was that it was a pity that, offering for a price the opportunity to kick a penalty in the pitch with a goalkeeper provided, it's only about a penalty kicked in a smaller goal just outside the rectangular, what a pity.

I booked to see Flumenise v Portuguesa through my hotel and really enjoyed the experience.

As a football fan of many years to visit the Maracanã was a dream come true!

It was good to sample the atmosphere of a typical Brazilian football match. Now all the standing areas have been filled in with plastic seats, but it’s easy to imagine what it would have been like with 150,000 + crowds yesteryear.

The home side won 2.0.

This was one of the stops on our day tour of Rio. This is a obviously a very important stadium for Brazil opened to host the 1950 World Cup. These days it’s pretty run down and not very impressive. Lots of people hang around the front selling football memorabilia and water snacks etc. Can be unsafe and caution should be exercised.

I have never followed soccer of any form. I'm a hockey fan. During my visit to Rio, we ended up with an Uber driver convincing us to buy tickets to a Flamengo game live. OMG!!! 40,000 limited due to Covid guidelines. The fan participation is off the charts!!! The noise from them is unlike anything I have ever experienced!! I don't even know if the PA system even works. After the game we walked to our parking spot a couple of blocks away. You could still hear them cheering after the game!!!! To think that crowd is only half the size of a normal sold out game!🤯

Spun around here on the day of a Flamengo match. The ground is actually named after a builder of Brazilian football, but it is in the Maracanã neighbourhood, hence the name. Has been cut down in size from days gone by and is now part of a larger complex. Signage easy, safe place to be, easy access. Soccer fans should not miss it.

Great atmosphere with great fans. We enjoyed the game for 60min, but left, because the way out end away from the stadium is horrible. You need to take your time to get there. THe atmosphere in front of the stadium is already amazing.
