  • I've been visiting the stadium Pacaembu almost by accident. Had an event nearby and I used to meet. Very well taken care of. The lawn is simply a rug, gorgeous, you don't see any ripple. It's exciting to be there next to the lawn and imagining those bleachers full of screaming fans, your team name or player in your field, must be creepy. My grade is not high for that I've been to other stadiums much larger and more modern, but this does not diminish the importance of Pacaembu stadium where many memorable match have already been held. You don't pay anything to enter, I've been on a Saturday morning and the gates giving access to the lawn were open and could go and enjoy the will. The same location also has the Football Museum is a treat for those who love football. then, in a single visit you can meet two really cool attractions, the experience could be a spectacular lawn of those and still learn a little about the past of our football at the Museum. Worth the visit, For which football is all good and who is not as fond as well worth for knowledge and culture. the lawn is so beautiful and perfect that I think even I would play well in it Lol, lie I'm a wooden leg lol

  • The stadium was very important for the clubs of Sao Paulo but today is outdated, that because of the new arenas of the capital paulista. It took me almost 1:00 in the queue to enter the game Saints x Bahia in gate 25 (Bobsled Track). I and several supporters lost a good part of the game. Besides the stadium's indoor arena is minima, and how the sound was hot the experience was not so good.
