Description

What to expect:
Maracanã, The Legendary Stadium, officially called Estádio Mário Filho, was built to serve as the flagship venue for the 1950 World Cup. It was meant to become the biggest football stadium in the world. Maracanã hosted the opening match of the 1950 World Cup between Brazil and Mexico (4-0).  It would go on to host four more matches in the first round group stage and a further three in the second round stage, among which the deciding final match between Uruguay and Brazil (2-1). The official attendance of the final was about 173,000 paying spectators, but it is estimated that more than 200,000 witnessed the game live from the stands.When Brazil got awarded the 2014 World Cup in 2007, it was clear that Maracanã was destined to host the final and would therefore need a massive redevelopment. During the 2014 World Cup, Maracana hosted seven matches, including the quarter-final between Germany and France (1-0) and the final between Germany and Argentina (1-0).
Feel the excitement as you stand on the site of 2 World Cup finals and imagine how the world’s biggest football stars felt on the field. Follow in the footsteps of some of the world’s most famous football players like Zico, Ronaldo, Beckenbauer, Ghiggia and hear anecdotes about Brazil’s best-known players, such as Pele, Garrincha and Zagalo.
Your tour begins visiting the outside of the stadium where you have chance to take pictures by the Bellini monument, the meeting point on games days.
Then take a tour inside stadium itself. See an amazing collection of soccer relics and learn the history of the venue through multimedia video and sound displays. Go into one of the changing rooms, where jerseys from different Brazilian teams are hanging, and follow the tunnel onto the pitch, where a panoramic view of the whole stadium can be enjoyed. Get fun on the Maracanã the Legendary Stadium tour.
