Estádio Romário de Souza Faria, also known as Marrentão, is a football (soccer) stadium located in Xerém, a district of Duque de Caxias, Brazil. It is named after Brazilian footballer Romário de Souza Faria.[2] The stadium is owned by Duque de Caxias.[3] It replaced Estádio Mestre Telê Santana, nicknamed Maracanãzinho, as Duque de Caxias' home ground.[4]

History[edit]

The stadium was inaugurated in December 2007, when Duque de Caxias and Vasco da Gama drew 1–1.[3] The first official game was played on January 30, 2008,[5] when Cardoso Moreira beat Duque de Caxias 2–1.[6]

On October 2, 2008, the Brazilian Fire Department approved the use of all 10,000 stadium seats.[1] The stadium's capacity was previously limited to 4,000 people.[1]
