The 2016 Summer Olympics, officially known as the "Games of the XXXI Olympiad," will be an international multi-sport event to be held in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, from August 5 to August 21, 2016.[n 1]
Events will take place at eighteen existing venues (eight of which require some redevelopment), nine new venues constructed for the Summer Games, and seven temporary venues which will be removed following the games. Each event will be held in one of four geographically segregated Olympic clusters: Barra, Copacabana, Deodoro, and Maracanã. The same was done for the 2007 Pan American Games. Several of the venues will be located at the Barra Cluster Olympic Park. The largest venue at the games in terms of seating capacity is the Estádio do Maracanã, officially known as Jornalista Mário Filho Stadium, which can hold 74,738 spectators and will serve as the official Olympic Stadium, hosting the opening and closing ceremonies as well as football finals. In addition, five venues outside Rio de Janeiro will host football events, in the cities of Brasília, Belo Horizonte, Manaus, Salvador and São Paulo.
For the first time since the 1900 Summer Olympics, the Opening and Closing Ceremonies for the Summer Olympics aren't being held in the same place as athletics events, and all gymnastics events will take place in the same arena.
