  • Built to host some games of the 2014 FIFA World Cup, the Arena of the Amazon was also one of the venues in the Olympic Football Rio 2016 Olympic Games. With beautiful architecture, this Plaza of sport is designed for multipurpose use, and currently contributing greatly to the coming release of city of Manaus one of the Brazilian cities that best play the great sporting events and concerts. Their external structure is manufactured in Europe and came to Manaus where was assembled piece by piece. Worth knowing is a beautiful space for the intended use

  • Modern Stadium, but there are some problems in some seats, since they are very close to the protections of glass.
