Description: Arena Corinthians

New stadium for the football club Corinthians is growing in eastern district of Itaquera, perceived as unattractive due to low living standards. The venue is built with private funding (though with preferential loans from public banks). When ready, it will hold 48,000 people.

Public funding is provided for the temporary sections that will be used during 2014 World Cup. Due to FIFA capacity requirements for opening venue, the Sao Paulo stadium will have a temporary capacity of 65,000.

Construction along very controversial design by CDC Arquitectos began as the last of 2014-projects, in May 2011. Despite financing problems, permanent structure is hoped to be delivered by the end of 2013, while additional tournament sections behind goals will be added later.
