  • Even with the scoreless tie the game was good and it was worth it to have gone to the stadium. The stadium needs a makeover so that in the future can continue the ribeirão team to stay in the first division of the paulista football or aspire someday to reach the elite of brasileirão. Need good parking, good structure of public transport (subway and bus service 24 hours) or even demolish the current and choose another site for easier access. The important thing is that there are options and businessmen should invest, as it will bring progress and development and the public service should not get in the way and reducing the taxes to which this becomes possible. We have a good team, now do a great stadium!

  • I went to the play of Botafogo x Palmeiras. Stadium was too full, so much confusion in. But I liked the stadium. Had already done a tour 1 day before. Recommend to all passionate about football!

  • At the entrance to the city, and near the stadium of FC Shopping, you will find the Santa Cruz Stadium, one of the largest in the State of São Paulo, which belongs to Botafogo FC of Ribeirão Preto. Because it was built so long ago, the distance is too large. The larger public arrived almost 60,000 people.
