Home World Cup News World Cup Teams Match Schedule World Cup Groups World Cup Knockout Stage This newly built 42,374 capacity stadium is the most northerly of all the stadia being used at the World Cup this summer. The Arena da Amaznia is based in the city of Manaus in the Amazonas region of the country and is likely to be one of the hottest and most humid locations this summer. In fact England manager Roy Hodgson criticized the location before the draw saying the extreme heat in the location would make it difficult for the players. By a large coincidence his England side were drawn to play Italy at the Arena da Amaznia in the headline event of the four matches to be hosted in the city. The stadium itself caused more consternation as it was still under construction at the start of 2014 and doubts were raised if it could be completed in time for this summer. However, they finished the stadium by March 2014 and the inaugural match was a traditional North Brazilian cup clash between the new residents of the stadium Nacional and Remo. The Arena da Amaznia is built on the site of the Estdio Vivaldo Lima, a stadium that stood from 1970 until its demolition in 2011. That older stadium was more commonly known as Vivaldo and, although Manaus is not a hotbed of Brazilian football, had a record attendance of 56,950 fans for the Nacional v New York Cosmos clash in 1980. The newer stadium will not have anything like that attendance with a capacity of just over 42,000 but with the England v Italy match, as well as USA v Portugal and two other games, there is sure to be plenty of exciting football and great spectacles to been seen in his northerly part of the country this summer.

Home World Cup News World Cup Teams Match Schedule World Cup Groups World Cup Knockout Stage Officially known as the Estdio Joaquim Amrico Guimares, the Arena da Baixada is a 15 year old stadium, opening in Curitiba in December 1999 will host four World Cup matches this upcoming summer, including a match featuring the reigning World Champions Spain. There has been a football stadium at this location for a hundred years and the stadium original stadium was named Estdio Joaquim Amrico Guimares in 1934 before closing down in the 1970s. It reopened in 1984 and stood for 13 years before being demolished for the newly built Arena da Baixada in 1999, which has left the stadium considered one of the most modern and best appointed stadiums in Brazil. Atltico Paranaense, who play in the Brazilian Serie A and finished 3rd in 2013, are the residents of this stadium in the South of the country. The record attendance at the stadium is 31,700 when Atltico Paranaense beat So Caetano 4-2 in the first game of the 2011 Brazilian Championship finals. The capacity will be boosted for the World Cup to almost 44,000 to allow more supporters to enjoy the football festivities on show in this southerly part of Brazil. The headline event at the Arena da Baixada will be the clash of Australia and the world champions Spain in their Group B match, but the fans will also be treated to the sight of Ecuador and Russia as both teams get the opportunity to play their exciting brands of football against Honduras and Algeria respectively. We see there being a fantastic feast of exciting football played at the one of the most historic football locations in all of Brazil this summer.

Home World Cup News World Cup Teams Match Schedule World Cup Groups World Cup Knockout Stage The 45,000 capacity Arena das Dunas was designed by famed sports architect Christopher Lee, who designed his creation as the most perfect stadium in South America, began construction in 2011 on the site of the demolished 39 year old Machado stadium. The stadium was completed at the start of the year and was officially opened late in January 2014 by Brazilian President Dilma Rousseff, FIFA Secretary General Jrme Valcke and Local Organising Committee (LOC) Chairman Jose Maria Marin. The stadium is located in the city of Natal, the capital of the Rio Grande do Norte state, and will host the sides Amrica-RN and ABC following the completion of the World Cup. The older stadium that previously occupied this location had a highest capacity of 55,000, although its maximum was 42,000 at the end of its life, with a highest attendance record of 53,320 set in a 1972 clash of Santos and ABC. The new Arena das Dunas will have a lower overall capacity, but with some impressive fixtures to be played in this North-East section of Brazil, including Italy v Uruguay and Ghana v USA, we are sure that the venue is going to be a sell out and will last long in the memories of the visitors to the area.

Home World Cup News World Cup Teams Match Schedule World Cup Groups World Cup Knockout Stage The Arena de So Paulo is the future home of Brazilian side Corinthians after the stadium was custom built for the 2014 World Cup and it will be the fifth largest stadium in the top tier of Brazilian football once fully completed. It will have a seating capacity of 48,234, but it will have a capacity of 65,000 for the World Cup this summer with the addition of more than 21,000 temporary seats for the duration of the Final. The stadium is located in So Paulo and post the World Cup the stadium will be known as Arena Corinthians when the five time Brazilian champions left their current home of Pacaembu after a 74 year spell at the ground. It has cost more than 215 million to build this impressive stadium but it has had a troubled time during its construction. Two workers were killed in November 2013 as a crane failed while the builders and FIFA were at odds over the progress of construction as late as March 2014. The builders reported that the stadium was 98.82% completed, while FIFA found that the stadium was only 92% completed. Despite this, the stadium will shine come June 12th as it hosts the opening match of the 2014 World Cup. Its 105 by 68 metre pitch, sown with Perennial Ryegrass and intertwined with 22 million artificial fibres, promises to display some of the best football in the competition this summer. Will that be true? Lets hope its controversial construction does not carry over once the stadium is ready to go on April 15th.

Home World Cup News World Cup Teams Match Schedule World Cup Groups World Cup Knockout Stage Based in the Eastern seaboard city of Salvador the Itaipava Arena Fonte Nova, or the Complexo Esportivo Cultural Professor Octvio Mangabeira to give it its full title, is a stadium that played a vital part at the 2013 Confederations Cup and will host six matches this summer. The Arena Fonte Nova is a newly built stadium that opened in April 2013 following a roof collapse of the older Estdio Fonte Nova in 2007. Following this incident that saw seven people killed the owners of the stadium, the Bahia government, tore down the stadium with the Arena Fonte Nova going up on the site of the older ground. Ground was broken on the site in 2010 and it opened with the match of Vitria v Bahia with the game ending 5-1. There were issues with the stadium again though with supporters reporting blind spots as well as excessive dust and puddles all coming from that first match, while after just six weeks there was a partial roof collapse after heavy rain collected. All of these issues have been resolved and the stadium as a success at the 2013 Confederations Cup. There were three matches played at the Arena Fonte Nova, now known as the Itaipava Arena Fonte Nova thanks to a ten year sponsorship with the Itaipava brewery, during the 2013 ConfederationsCup produced 13 goals, including six in the thrilling 4-2 Brazil win over Italy as well as four goals and penalty shootout in the third/fourth playoff between Uruguay and Italy. We are expecting plenty more action and excitement at the Arena Fonte Nova this summer and with matches like Spain v Netherlands and Germany v Portugal we are confident of seeing this happen in Salvador at the 2014 World Cup this summer.
