Pacaembu Stadium, Sao Paulo

4.0
The first match at Pacaembu Stadium took place on April 27, 1940. Named after Paulo Machado de Carvalho, the stadium seats 37,952 people and has a pitch of 104 m (341.2 ft) by 70 m (230 ft). Although you’ll see a sea of seats for about 40,000 people at the stadium, the attendance record is over 71,000 for a soccer match between Sao Paulo and the Corinthians. Besides the cheering of crowds and the shouting of “goal, goal, goal,” the stadium also saw action as a pit stop in the Amazing Race and as a venue for Pope Benedict XVI's visit to Brazil.

    The stadium has an imposing façade and a well planned structure. Their stands even though small, leaves the city drawing shows the background.

    Really unthinkable is that in a small stadium is has played the final of a copa libertadores (copa libertadores 2012), already just 40,000 people enter. The stadium has a fairly large parking square and is easily accessible through the different means of public transport of the city. As advantage. being so small the playing field has very good visibility to go see a game or any event that develops in the same. Although I do not recommend it, as plus, inside the stadium is the Football Museum, another attraction for the curious.

    It's true! It is an iconic Stadium from the city of São Paulo. Well located, your imposing classical façade and features of 40 years, decade of your opening. The arrival is quiet, despite the common transit retentions to all fields in days of games. Will there be any difficulty for those who are driving. The structure is your deficit and decadent to the new times, whose fans ' demands are increasingly demanding. Access to side doors are difficult. People with mobility difficulties will not have easy life there. Precarious internal structure without diversity of options (you can find more alternatives around than inside): bars, snacks, bathrooms, access, halls ... it seems to me that stopped in time. Field with low lighting and some sectors the lawn doesn't favor. However, the greater of two evils is the logistics: box office, tickets and support staff don't get along, generating chaos and confusion! I suggest for those who go to see a game note carefully the information and access gates. Especially for those who buy tickets on sites and will need to remove them. There's nothing easy about this operation. However, despite the points listed here, deserve a visit. Primarily by football fans! It's a classic!
