Morumbi Stadium, Sao Paulo

#57 of 1,023 in Things to do in Sao Paulo
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.

  • We were at the stadium for one of 4 concerts of U2, in October 2017. It was my first international show. Everything went very well, very good organization. As the stadium is not covered and it rained, we had rain. Food prices were very expensive. One Burger more or less cost 20 reais. Water only in Cup plastic, no bottles, umbrellas, anything that could be dangerous. I think the biggest problem is because it is a residential neighborhood, having nothing nothing even: bakery, bar, snack bar, nothing. And a few parking lots. We made the reservation of parking spaces on the internet and gave everything right. Also it is very difficult to access by public transport. Else, you can only get out of the car after the closure of the 1:00 event given the amount of people and vehicles.

  • We were at the stadium for the U2 concert and I have nothing to complain about. Access and general condition of the well-preserved Stadium.
