  • The stadium is well located. In the surrounding area have several parking options. The stadium has an ancient structure. How to watch games in visitor, too bad. Weird street access and security. The access inside the stadium to the bleachers is also bad.

  • Medium Stadium with reasonable accommodation and food structure. But beautiful when crowded, like a cauldron about to explode. BEAUTIFUL

  • The Retiro Island is the home stadium of Pernambuco that has the best location, not to mention the best water park. Watch the matches of sport on the island of retreat is a fantastic experience. Recently the Board replaced the fence of the social sector by glass, which not only best in aesthetic aspect, as improved deeply functional point of view, because you can watch the game without the interference of the old wires and irons.
