It suffered a fire in October 2013, due to polystyrene insulation panels catching alight.Although nobody was injured, the fire came within 24 hours of the state governor of Mato Grosso warning that it may not be finished for the World Cup. On the day of its opening, on April 24, 2014, 5,000 seats were still to be installed in the stadium.
