Pacaembu Stadium, Sao Paulo
(4/5 based on 750+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • Old, with cement bleachers, stalls, bathroom dirty, chain link fence with possibility of fan there be ... one of the few stadiums in the country that have lost the true essence of Brazilian football that gradually comes to dying.

  • Stadium that keeps the essence of football, watch a game at Pacaembu Morumbi and than go in luxurious arenas of Palmeiras and Corinthians. Who are you going to the subway, it is best to get off at the Clínicas, green line, is close to the stadium. I've been to more than 10 games, most as a visitor, but this year I went in 3 games in which the Flemish sent the game, sensational, plus go in the final of the Copa São Paulo, game that Flamengo defeated Corinthians on penalties.

  • Built in 1940, the stadium with its beautiful architecture, has within its premises the Museum of football. The good and interesting ride!
