The home stadium Claúdio Moacir de Azevedo was not approved for 2009 Campeonato Estadual Carioca, due to the renewal of the whole stadium. A concrete structure was lifted, but the building process is far from complete yet. Then new stadium is said to hold 25,000 people, when done, besides having stores and a school underneath the seats structure. Unfortunately, there will be no floodlights yet.
As the Carioca championship is underway, Macaé Esporte is playing his "Homeground" matches in Araruama, a city 100 kilometers far away of Macaé, the hometown of the club. The stadium which Macaé is playing as homeground is the Arena Guanabara, owned by Guanabara Esporte Clube, a small but very comfortable stadium, which has a small capacity of 2.000 people. Just for instance, in Macaé's first match of the championship, against Volta Redonda on January 24, 2009, the public was said to be 541.
