The Estádio do Maracanã, one of the largest football stadia in the world, was named after the Maracanã River. The nearby and smaller Ginásio do Maracanãzinho indoor arena is a derivative name, Maracanãzinho meaning Little Maracanã.
The subsequently developed Maracanã neighbourhood around the stadium and that which the river flows through, took its name from the stadium.
