2016 Rio de Janeiro Olympic Stadium

The Maracanã Stadium was built specially for the 1950 World Cup, and demonstrates even today impressive architectural features, such as the 4 great access ramps, allowing at least 100,000 people to leave the stadium in 30 minutes. The system of ramps allows for circulation between the 6 floors of the stadium without even one step.

Being one of the main tourist attractions of the City of Rio de Janeiro, the stadium is located in a privileged spot i.e. on the main rail network, next to a subway station and on the main bus routes to all the principal areas of the city.

The works on the stadium will begin in October, will cost US$ 35 million and will turn it into one of the most modern stadiums in the world. The first stage, will be ready in December, and will meet the demands set by FIFA, which does not allow for spectators to watch the games while standing.

There will be 68,000 new chairs fitted in the stands, thus reducing the total capacity of the stadium from 115,000 to 90,000, yet will increase both the safety and comfort of the spectators. At the end of the final stage, which will be concluded in 2000, a part of the 200,000 sqm of the stadium will be used as a sport - culture and leisure complex. After this refurbishment the stadium arena will also have a total of 120 boxes for 3,000 people, as well as a large and modern press area, following the FIFA's international standards, and many other attractions.
