  • One of the first Standard FIFA Brazil's Arenas. With a capacity of approximately 25000 is beautiful. One of the most modern except for the fields that were made exclusively for the World Cup. Parking, Access, chairs ... all great. Worth watching a game and meet the Railway Stadium.

  • When passing in Araraquara made a point of visiting the light source, Railway Stadium. I called earlier to the phones of the Railway Club for the purchase of uniforms and visit to the stadium. I was informed that there would be the uniform in the shops of the Centre where Luppo acquired the mine, and that the stadium could be visited through the visit to the Museum. We went there in the morning and we can do the visitation requesting the personnel working at the stadium because the Museum was closed, apparently for reform. The stadium was very good after the reform, along the lines of the new arenas, the pictures come out beautiful because it's all organized, with little chairs fully wine throughout the seating area, as well as being virtually all covered. Highlight very clean place, had game the night before and the stadium was amazing, magnificent, and it's not normally like that. For those who like football is worth but I was upset not to have visited the Museum.
