Estádio do Pacaembu – design description
The revamp of the Pacaembu sports complex, the most important element of which is the stadium, began on June 29, 2021 with demolition of rectangular south stand (Tobogã). The tribune was erected in 1970 when it was added to existing horseshoe-shaped structure.
In the place of the south stand, a multifunctional building will be created, with five above-ground and four underground storeys. Its total floor area is planned at 44,000 square metres. The building is to house a congress and event centre for 2,000 people and an underground car park with 550 spaces.
The ground floor is to feature interconnected areas such as an outdoor space overlooking the pitch, an interior square with restaurants, cafes and service facilities. In addition, there will be a sports centre and the world's largest esports arena (entirely under the east stand), specialising in the Battle Royale genre with seats for 100 players and 2,000 fans. All this is to be done in the first phase of the investment.
Next stage of modernization is focused on the renovation of east and west stands (along the playing field). The aim of work is to expand back-up facilities with new usable areas, toilets and catering facilities. The football museum will remain there in its present shape.
Historic art deco façade of the venue will be restored, and the northern sections of the stadium's horseshoe arch (green and yellow) are to be refreshed but retain their original appearance. Press zones and a gymnasium with a characteristic roof in the form of wooden arches will be revamped. 25 VIP lounges are to be available within the west stand.
Upon completion of works, Estádio Municipal Paulo Machado de Carvalho can accommodate up to 26,000 people.
