Arena Amazonia

Manaus - Arena Amazonia

The Arena Amazonia is one of 12 stadiums being used for the upcoming 2014 World Cup. The venue is located in Manaus in the northwestern part of Brazil and has been built on the current site of the Vivaldão stadium, which was knocked down in 2010. The all-seater stadium has a capacity of 46,000 and is scheduled to host four group stage matches at next summer's tournament.

The city is situated at the heart of the Amazon rainforest, meaning a sustainable stadium project has been at the heart of the design for the new venue. For example the stadium will have a fixed steel rooftop cover which will serve as a large gutter that drains the tropical rain water, which will then be used for the toilets and to water the pitch.
