Description: Novo Castelão

As part of preparations for the 2014 World Cup, the ground built in 1973 is to be completely rebuilt with only some 70% of the upper tier left untouched. New lower tier will bring supporters closer to the action while new main stand’s upper tier is to provide skyboxes and other corporate facilities.

Also, old roof was removed with a new one to cover all spectators instead of just some. Additionally, thanks to the slender pylons supporting it, the venue is to change its image completely.

Surrounding the stadium is a complex of both parking (4,200 bays) and further commercial and recreational facilities.
