Morumbi Stadium, Sao Paulo

(3.7/5 based on 1,300+ 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.

  • This stadium is very good to go to concerts, mainly by the gigantic size. On the other hand access is terrible, to fool parked almost no place and must pay a fortune for parking attendants. Public transportation over there is pretty bad.

  • Is one or the best stadium that I have seen in South America, is broad, large, with a great Museum to see flags, stories and trophies of the São paulo. Also the grandstands, grasses and dressing room are very modern.
