  • King Pele stadium was inaugurated on 25 October 1970 with a friendly match between Alagoas (CSA and CRB) 0 X 5 Santos C/o Rei Pelé playing. Until today, it was the largest crowd recorded in the record of Trapichão paying 45,865. Other viewers of the season still claim that were present more than 53,000 people. Was and still is UNBELIEVABLE to the STADIUM in 1970. The Government of Alagoas have to double its capacity, because it does not support more local classics. Only the large mass Azulina can fill the Trapichão on playoffs.

  • The Trapichão was opened in 1970 and retired in 1992. Has a capacity of 18,000 fans. The stadium is in need of care. Still, it's a good ride.

  • The popular Trapichão already was in the early 90 's most modern Stadium in the country. In General, the Stadium serves well, and offers comfort. However, unfortunately the stadium suffers from the lack of care of the competent bodies. I'm always there to accompany the CRB, and it is noticeable that the chairs are with their rusty support, several broken, where there have been incidents. The electronic turnstiles no longer functional for a long time, and part of the sector of special chairs are banned over a year ago by sheer incompetence. But overall, meets the public comfortably like football.
