(3.7/5 based on 1,200+ reviews on the web)
The Estádio Cícero Pompeu de Toledo, widely known as Morumbi, is a football stadium located in the Morumbi district in São Paulo, Brazil. It is the home of São Paulo Futebol Clube and its formal name honors Cícero Pompeu de Toledo, who was São Paulo Futebol Clube's chairman during most of the stadium construction and died before its inauguration. Morumbi is the largest privately owned stadium in Brazil. The stadium was designed by the architect João Batista Vilanova Artigas.HistoryIn the early years of its existence, São Paulo Futebol Clube used for their headquarters and home field the Chácara da Floresta, located beside the Ponte das Bandeiras next to the Tietê river in the center of São Paulo. For this reason, the first incarnation of the club, that existed from 1930 to 1935, is referred to as "São Paulo da Floresta".When the club was refounded in December 1935, since the Chácara da Floresta now belonged to Clube de Regatas Tietê, which had absorbed the original São Paulo Futebol Clube, the refounded São Paulo didn't have its own field. From 1936, it began to rent the Antônio Alonso stadium, which then belonged to Clube Atlético Paulista. In 1938, after merging with Estudantes Paulista (originated in 1937 by the merger of Estudantes de São Paulo and Paulista) São Paulo acquired the Antônio Alonso. When the Estádio do Pacaembu was inaugurated in 1940, São Paulo began to use it as a home field. the Antônio Alonso stadium was sold to Juventus in 1942.

  • There's a lot of history involved, even more for those who loves football, but is a bit sloppy and dumped, causing not to feel safe. Could be made a reform in the stands.

  • Initially I thought it was bad to have to pay the value of real 30 just to meet the stadium. As there is an agency of the own stadium that organizes these visits The visit is made with a guide that will explain a little of the history of the Club and the stadium. Worth a visit!

  • We were at the old Morumbi to see a match, Sao Paulo x Ponte Preta, is a stadium with a lot of history, very important for Brazilian football, worth knowing and seeing a match, in the game we were more than 51,000 people, was such a lovely party, victory of SP for 2-0. But today with the arenas, this stadium, as well as all the others, are becoming outdated, the grass is too long and for those who see games in the arena, the game gets boring because of distance, we watch in a box behind the corner and the sight was not good, my wife has difficulties to see far and couldn't meet anybody nor the goal she saw. Recommend.
