Cheer for your favorite team at Arena Amazonia


The Amazon may not be the first place that comes to mind when you think of football, but Manaus will prove to be a unique area to experience World Cup Matches.

The former Estadio Vivaldao is being renovated into the new Arena Amazonia, which will be enclosed by a metal structure designed to resemble a straw basket - one of the area's famous products.

The Arena Amazonia will seat more than 40,000 football fans cheering on their favorite teams during the 2014 World Cup. It will boast restaurants and underground parking as well as access from busses and monorail services. The design was modeled after the area and the shape of the stadium resembles a traditional indigenous basket.
