  • I went to the football game Brazil x Bolivia female, but I didn't expect so much of the space. The arena is very organized, clean, and has a huge capacity. The architecture is amazing and it's all very well maintained. The visibility of the field is perfect, in any position. And, leaving the Center, only one bus is necessary, and it gets you in the door. One of the best programs I've done.
