    The stadiums: Arena de Sao Paulo, Sao Paulo




    Of the three biggest clubs in Sao Paulo, the only one which previously did not own a stadium with the necessary size and infrastructure to host games was the city’s best-supported side: Sport Club Corinthians Paulista.

    Yet this long-yearned for dream of the Corinthians faithful will finally come true ahead of the 2014 FIFA World Cup™ in the shape of the Arena de Sao Paulo. Under construction in the neighbourhood of Itaquera, which is in the city’s Eastern Zone and a traditional Corintianos stronghold, the project is scheduled to be completed by early 2014.

    The stadium works are also expected to boost development in the Eastern Zone, which is one of Sao Paulo’s most deprived areas and home to nearly four million people, as well as ensuring hundreds of workers gain professional qualifications. A total of close to 6,000 people will be employed either directly or indirectly over the course of the construction process.

    The Arena de Sao Paulo has been chosen to host the Opening Match of Brazil 2014 and will also welcome five other encounters, including one semi-final.

    Second test match to be staged at Arena de Sao Paulo

    On Wednesday 21 May 2014, FIFA formally requested the Brazilian Football Association (CBF) to organise a second test match at Arena de Sao Paulo on Sunday 1 June 2014. CBF is working to re-schedule a Brazilian championship fixture for the test to ensure it attracts more than 50,000 spectators.

    Given the attention drawn from the Opening Match of the FIFA World Cup™, it is vital for the organisers that all facilities will be tested under full match conditions, including the use of temporary seats and associated facilities. These additional installations were not in place when the first test match took place on 19 May.

    The decision was taken to have the match on a Sunday rather than a weekday to reduce the impact on the city's operational routine, after a request from local authorities.
