The Tour

The tour, lasts for 50 minutes, on average, and can be done with bilingual guides or individually.

The Tour is one of the attractions most sought after by tourists in Rio and by the city’s residents.

Whoever goes to the stadium can get to know one of the locker rooms, decorated with shirts of clubs that compete for the Brazilian Championship A Series, the warm up room and the press conference room. In the locker room, a video with historical football kicks opens the highest point of the journey: the entrance on the pitch. When reaching the edge of the sacred stage, participants can even sit on one of the benches.

In addition to the pitch, visitors will also be able to see items related to players who have marked their names in the stadium’s history, such as Pelé, Garrincha and Zico.
