I will post here some updated photos of all 12 World Cup stadiums in Brazil. One stadium per post. I will post in the same order as below, so if you want updates in the stadiums still under construction, scroll down to them.

Mineirão - Belo Horizonte (Minas Gerais state)

Arena Pernambuco - Recife (Pernambuco state)

Arena Fonte Nova - Salvador (Bahia state)

Estádio Nacional - Brasilia (Federal District)

Castelão - Fortaleza (Ceará state)

 

other 6 stadiums will be ready for the World Cup 2014

 

Beira Rio - Porto Alegre (Rio Grande do Sul state)

Arena da Baixada - Curitiba (Paraná state)

Arena Corinthians - São Paulo (São Paulo state)

Arena das Dunas - Natal (Rio Grande do Norte state)

Look how much free space there is surrounding each of these stadiums.

 

No wonder we're struggling to expand Stamford Bridge. 

 

Brasilia is a planned city built in the 60s. The area where the stadium is built was already designed to have that free space and the new stadium was built over an old one.

 

Arena Pernambuco was built on the very outskirts of the city, VERY FAR from downtown Recife.

 

Fonte Nova is a very old stadium that was demolished and rebuilt. The park space around was already there.

 

Maracanã was built for the 1950 World Cup. So there was more space in that area of Rio to build the complex.

 

Mineirão was built in the 60s. Some 10km north of Belo Horizonte´s downtown. In that time, the area had almost no settlement, and a huge park with the stadium was built there.

 

Castelão was also built several decades ago, somewhat far from denser areas.

 

 

Plus, all of these first 6 stadiums are PUBLIC (usually belong to municipalities or state governments). That means they were built in areas that either already belonged to the government and had not been opened to private development, or that a lot public money was used to buy areas/resettle people.

 

When I post the other 6 stadiums (plus two bonus modern stadiums that are not in the World Cup), a few are private, and you will see two stadiums in very dense areas. (Allianz Park and Arena da Baixada)

Looking good cant wait

How much posts until next page? I need to post photos of the other 6 stadiums, but I am afraid posting on this same page can make viewing difficult for mobile users and the ones with low video memory, etc.

BONUS - World Cup class stadiums that will not be in the Cup (except as training grounds)

Grêmio Arena (Porto Alegre, same city as Beira Rio)

Aside from the Arena Panthanal they all look fantastic, you wonder how much money the government spent on building/redeveloping them though when there is so much poverty in the country.

Gremio Arena, Beira Rio, Allianz Park, Arena Corinthians and Arena da Baixada are private.

 

the others are public but it´s states/cities money. The total sum of money spent on the public stadiums is about 3.5 billion dollars.
