Estádio Nacional Mané Garrincha[2] is a multi-purpose stadium in Brasília, Brazil. It is currently used mostly for football matches. The stadium holds 72,788.[1] and was built in 1974. It is named after famed Brazilian footballer Garrincha.

The stadium is one of several structures comprising the Ayrton Senna Multisport Complex, which also includes the Nilson Nelson Gymnasium and the Nelson Piquet International Autodrome.

It was inaugurated on May 18, 2013 after the reformation for the FIFA Confederations Cup with the participation of the Governor of Brasília Agnelo Queiroz and the President of Brazil Dilma Rousseff. The original architect was Ícaro de Castro Mello.

Estádio Nacional Mané Garrincha is owned by the Department of Sports, Physical Education and Recreation of Distrito Federal. The name is a homage to the football legend Mané Garrincha, who won the 1958 and 1962 World Cup with the Brazil national team.

History[edit]

In 1974, the works on Estádio Mané Garrincha were completed. It was built when Garrincha was approximately 40 years old. The inaugural match was played on March 10 of that year, when Corinthians beat CEUB 2-1. The first goal of the stadium was scored by Corinthians' Vaguinho.

On March 2, 1996 he received the last concert of the legendary Brazilian band Mamonas Assassinas, after it the group suffered an airplane accident which left no survivors.

The stadium's attendance record currently stands at 51,200, set on December 20, 1998 when Gama beat Londrina 3-0 at the 1998 Série B final, which gave Gama its first national trophy and consequent promotion to Série A in 1999.[3]

On December 8, 2007, the final of the first edition of the Copa do Brasil de Futebol Feminino, won by Mato Grosso do Sul/Saad, was hosted at Estádio Mané Garrincha.[4]

Brazil won the first game since the reopening of the stadium 3-0 against Japan on June 15, 2013, in the 2013 FIFA Confederations Cup.

2014 FIFA World Cup[edit]

The Mané Garrincha Stadium was demolished in 2010 to give way to a new stadium with a capacity of 72,788 fans and in order to reach the requirements for the 2014 World Cup, which will be held in Brazil. The stadium was renamed in early 2010 to the Estádio Nacional Mané Garrincha[2] and the construction began in April of the same year. The reconstruction involves dismantling the lower tier and retaining the upper tier into the new rectangular bowl, and reducing the size of the playing field so that the stadium can be a football-specific stadium.

The stadium will also host some games in the football tournament of the 2016 Summer Olympics to be held in Rio de Janeiro.[5]
