Arena Pantanal (Verdao), Cuiaba

Arena Pantanal is a multi-use stadium in Cuiabá, Brazil. Completed on April 26, 2014, it is used mostly for football and hosted four group stage matches during the 2014 FIFA World Cup. During the World Cup, the arena had a capacity of 41,390, and currently can seat 44,003 spectators.
Prior to its use for the 2014 FIFA World Cup, the venue received much criticism. It suffered a fire in October 2013, due to polystyrene insulation panels catching alight. Although nobody was injured, the fire came within 24 hours of the state governor of Mato Grosso warning that it may not be finished for the World Cup. On the day of its opening, on April 24, 2014, 5,000 seats were still to be installed in the stadium. Next to the football stadium is the Tocantins Gymnasium - Ginásio Aecim Tocantins.

  • I felt quite insecure, as in several other places in Cuiabá. Unfortunately it seems to be abandoned...

  • I was amazed when I entered the Arena, but unfortunately on the day of my visit... Important game and ran out of energy for 3 hours. Very big, but I felt it was a little abandoned... Toilets in destruction... Felt sorry for so much money applied there and being destroyed without maintenance.
