Estádio de Los Larios is a football stadium located in Xerém, a district of Duque de Caxias, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. The stadium is owned by Tigres do Brasil.[1] It has a maximum capacity of 11,000 people.[1] The stadium is named after the club's founders,[1] the Larios family.[2]

History[edit]

Initially, the stadium was used as a training center, named CT do Tigres.[1] It was used as the home ground of Tigres do Brasil in 2008 for the Campeonato Carioca Segunda Divisão, without having an official name at the time.[3]

The stadium was officially inaugurated on January 18, 2009, with two games.[4] The first game was an all-star game, in which players such as Carlos Alberto Torres, Ricardo Rocha[disambiguation needed], Márcio Santos, Vampeta, and Adílio participated.[4] The second game was a friendly game between Tigres do Brasil and Danubio of Uruguay. The game ended 4–4.[4] The first official competition game played in the stadium was the Campeonato Carioca game between Tigres do Brasil and Vasco, played on January 28, 2009.[2] Vasco won 4–0.[2]
