  • Is a football stadium in normal, like any other, even more because it is old, however, a good stadium. Good structure, good location.

  • The stadium and large easy access, parking around. The bathrooms are old and poorly maintained and in days of very dirty games. But it's worth it for football lovers.

  • Surely one of the best in the State of São Paulo even more at that distance from the Capital, the best stadium of Ribeirão despite the simple structure compared to large arena, has seen the size structure of Botafogo, receives the great teams always in Paulistão, can be improved but meets the needs.
