Tourist Spot Arena / Stadium
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.

  • the stadium is one of the best in the city, has good service by staff in General and good organization, the only negative factor is the region that in days of events is difficult to leave the place, too, and even with plenty of bus lines there is difficulty to leave the site quickly and efficiently.

  • Well trained team. Interesting and not boring. Illustrative. It's worth it. Recommend. I was very happy to meet the roots and history of "dearest". do not recommend to pepas and skunks.

  • Thanks very much worth the tour. At the time I hadn't known a football stadium and started well. Very nice, clean and organized! Met all environments, which gave a good idea of how the routine in the days of games. We know the grass, bleachers, box, locker rooms and a small memorial. We've come a Hall with huge and historical photos on the walls, doing the same way players do when they are the second. You could imagine how the adrenaline of going through that corridor.
