  • The stadium is old and lack a bit of conservation in some areas. The pool area very nice and watch the matches of Sport Club do Recife is an incredible emotion.

  • I've been visiting the complex (which surprised me, by the way) of Sport Club do Recife. Stage of island retreat has a trap door, with sloping curves that should provide a fantastic acoustics when it receives large audiences. The conservation aspect looked good, I think the stands had been recently painted. Next door is the Club's trophy room where staff are dedicated in explained all about the achievements and history of the Club.
