Sao Paulo's Estadio do Pacaembu set for renovation

Sao Paulo's Estadio do Pacaembu set for renovation

Tuesday 6th July 2021

The Brazilian city of Sao Paulo is to renovate the historic Estadio do Pacaembu, to increase supporter comfort and corporate hospitality.

The stadium was first opened in 1940 and hosted 6 matches at the 1950 World Cup. Although now mostly used for rugby, the 40,000 capacity stadium does still host some games for Sao Paulo's big 4 clubs - Sao Paulo, Corinthians, Palmeiras and Santos.

The city is now planning to spend around £60m rebuilding various parts of the stadium to bring it in line with modern expectations. As well as remodelling the stands, the project will also include an underground parking garage, underground convention centre and indoor attractions including cafes and restaurants.
