History and description

A proposal to build a stadium off of land given to Recife club, Estádio José do Rego Maciel, was made as early as 1955 when the city's mayor, Jose de Rego Maciel, gifted the club a plot of land that it had leased twelve years earlier. Santa Cruz started planning a new stadium in 1964, but it wasn't until 1988 that concrete plans were presented for a stadium that could hold 64,000 spectators.

The stadium can seat up to 30,000 spectators and is located in the municipality of Arruda, in the state of Rio de Janeiro.

After plans were made for a large expansion, construction on the second tier of the stadium was completed in 1982. With this addition, the stadium could theoretically hold over 100,000 spectators though these never entered as real capacity was lower due to safety restrictions.

In the 1980s and 1990s, Arruda Stadium hosted various internationals. During a qualifier between Brazil and Bolivia in 1993, more than 96,000 spectators were said to have filled the stands, though official attendance was set at 75,000.

Since the 1990s, capacity gradually decreased due to additional safety restrictions, now standing at just over 60,000. Generally speaking, it is usually limited to about 55,000.

Since 1982, the stadium underwent minor refurbishments. For the 2014 World Cup, the local government opted to build the new Arena Pernambuco in nearby Sao Lourenco da Mata.

How to get to Estadio do Arruda

The Arruda estadio is located in the north of Recife, in the Arruda area. It is about 5 kilometres from the old town and 10 kilometres from Boa Viagem beach resort area, which is in the south of the city. The Recife long distance bus terminal, TIP, is located in the western outskirts of the city. First take metro line 1 into the center and stop at the TIP station. The airport is located in the south near the Boa Viagem beach area and lies on metro line 2.

The Estadio do Arruda is not on the Metro system, so either take a taxi or inquire about bus routes locally.

Address: Av. Beberibe 1285, Arruda, Recife , 52120-130
