Parque do Sabia, Uberlandia

Playground Fun & Games
The biggest stadium in the Mina Gerais countryside with a capacity of 50,000 people, Parque do Sabia is a must see for the soccer pilgrim. It is the home of Uberlandia Esporte Clube and Clube Atletico Portal and currently only hosts soccer matches. Although the stadium’s full capacity is 50,000, its record attendance is 80,000 for an inaugural match between Brazil and Ireland in 1982. The game attracted almost twice as many fans as the seats can hold, so fans stood shoulder to shoulder as they cheered on their home team. Its name was changed from Parque do Sabia to Estádio Municipal João Havelange in 1995, but the change wasn’t popular with fans who continue to call it Parque do Sabia. Buy tickets to a game early and you may be able to experience the intensity of the stands for yourself.  To visit Parque do Sabia on your trip to Uberlandia, use our Uberlandia travel itinerary planner.

  • A very nice Park, has a lake where you can walk, has a zoo where you can see many species of animals and also with an aquarium with several types of fish. A good ride over the weekend.

  • A great Park! Ideal for those who want to go it alone (a walk in the Park has 5 Km), walking or running, for anyone who wants to go with his girlfriend, fiancée or wife and for those who want to go with the family (Aquarium, Zoo and playground). Very cool place!

Where to stay in Uberlandia

It's no coincidence that many of Uberlandia's most upmarket hotels line the city's main shopping street, Avenue João Naves de Ávila. Stay in one of the hotels along the avenue, or in the streets of the city center just behind it, to have easy access to the city's excellent shopping options. If high-end acommodation and glitzy retail isn't what you're looking for, look a few minutes away from the avenue and stay in one of many budget guesthouses and hostels. You can also find a cluster of accommodations slightly to the northwest in the neighborhood of Higino Guerra, around Praça da Bíblia.
