(800+ reviews on the web)
Tourist Spot Arena / Stadium
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.
