History and description

The plans for the construction of Estadio do Arruda were made as early as 1955 when the major of Recife, Jose de Rego Maciel, gifted the club a piece of land that it had leased 12 years earlier. The purpose of this stadium would be to serve as the home ground for Recife's football team. Santa Cruz initially moved between various stadiums before starting construction on a new stadium that could hold 64,000 spectators in 1964.

The building was originally made to hold just 8,000 people, but it soon became home to some of the most iconic clubs in Rio. The Estadio do Arruda has played host to Copa do Brasil titles, Copa Libertadores finals, and several Olympic games. The Estadio do Arruda officially opened in 1972 with a match between Santa Cruz and Flamengo (0-0). It has been home to some of the most iconic clubs in Rio over the years, including Copa do Brasil titles, Copa Libertadores finals, and several Olympic games.

After a plan was made for a major expansion of the stadium, works were completed in 1982. 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, Estadio do Arruda was known for hosting various internationals. In 1993, a qualifier between Brazil and Bolivia resulted in over 96,000 spectators being in the stands. However, official attendance was only set at 75,000 people.

A few years ago, capacity gradually decreased because of further safety restrictions. Now, the capacity is generally limited to about 55,000 people.

Since 1982, the stadium underwent only 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 Estadio do Arruda is located in the north of Recife, in the Arruda area, at about 5 kilometres from Recife's old town and about 10 kilometres from the popular Boa Viagem beach resort area. Reaching Recife's long distance bus terminal, TIP, can be a bit of an adventure. First, take metro line 1 into the city center. The airport is located in the south near Boa Viagem beach area and lies on metro line 2.

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