History and description

The Arena Pernambuco was built to serve as the 2014 World Cup venue for the city of Recife. Instead of redeveloping one of Recife's existing stadiums, e.g. Estadio do Arruda, the city opted to build a brand new stadium out of town. Construction of the stadium started in October 2010 and it was completed in May 2013. The Arena Pernambuco officially opened on 22 May 2013 with a friendly match between Nautico and Portuguese side Sporting CP.

The arena came at a cost of $500 million, which was financed by a public-private partnership between the state of Pernambuco and a consortium led by construction firm Odebrecht including event management firm AEG. The naming rights were sold to beer brewer Itaipava.

The Arena Pernambuco is scheduled to host four first round group matches and the round of 16 match between Costa Rica and Greece during the 2014 World Cup.

After the World Cup, the arena was home to Nautico for five years However, in 2019, Nautico moved back to their old home Estadio dos Aflitos.

How to get to the Arena Pernambuco

The Arena Pernambuco is located in São Lourenço da Mata, a suburb of Recife. You can get to the Arena Pernambuco by metro. The Cosme e Damião metro stop is located on the other side of the Capibaribe river, about a 30-minute walk away. Cosme e Damião is one of the last stops on the orange (line 1) branch of the Centro line, which can be caught from station Recife (Estação Central) in central Recife.

If coming from the airport or Boa Viagem, take a metro on the blue Sul line and transfer to a train on the Centro line. After getting off of the metro at Recife, walk in either direction to the Centro train station.

Recife's long distance bus terminal, TIP, is located in the same area as the arena (albeit not at walking distance). It is one metro stop on the orange line. On matchdays, shuttle buses may run from TIP to the stadium.

Address: Arena Pernambuco, São Lourenço da Mata

Eat, drink, and sleep near the Arena Pernambuco

The Arena Pernambuco is located in a beautiful green area near the suburb of São Lourenço da Mata, outside of the city of Recife. It is adjacent to the river Capibaribe and surrounded by forests and farms. The working class neighbourhoods of São Lourenço da Mata are nearby. The stadium was originally planned as part of a new modern urban development that would include entertainment and accommodation facilities. However, little has been realised so far, and people are best off eating and drinking in the city of Recife.

Most hotels and entertainment options are in the southern part of the city, in the well-off Boa Viagem area along the coast. Click here for an overview of hotels in Recife. Alternatively, if you prefer smaller towns and beautiful beaches, stay at picturesque Porto de Galinhas, which lies about 50 kilometres south of Recife.
