Our world famous stadium, part of the history of our people, a true cradle of many football stars is under a huge renovation work.

And the works have already entered into its final phase. Watch the videos!

The regular guided visit to the stadium is taking place normally.

When do soccer games end? Our trip that was supposed to be in November is now rescheduled for March. Are there still soccer games in March?

For sure there will be soccer matches in March.

Maybe not at Maracana, but at Engenhao stadium.

30th/31st Vasco x Botafogo at Engenhão Stadium

From the list above I´d choose that one. Because its a derby among two of the main teams and more traditional ones of Rio / Brazil.

Hi there, can you tell me now the Maracana is now finished/open, are their tours available?

I am in Rio with my partner between the 4th and 11th July and would very much like to see the new stadium!
