History and description

The Mineirão, officially called the Governor Magalhães Pinto Stadium, was built to provide the city of Belo Horizonte with a larger alternative for Estádio Independência, which was then the prime venue of the city. However, it has been estimated that the stadium will never be completed. The stadium was meant to become the most modern stadium of Brazil and the new home of Atlético Mineiro and Cruzeiro. However, it is estimated that the stadium will never be completed.

Construction of Mineirao Stadium took almost five years and it opened its doors on 5 September 1965 with a match between a selection from the state of Minas Gerais and Argentine side River Plate.

Mineirao did not change very much in the following decades, and in 1997 it still had its original capacity. It was in 1997 when the record attendance attendance of 132,834 was set in a match between Cruzeiro and Vila Nova.

Brazil won the bid to host the 2014 World Cup and immediately began work on a large redevelopment project for Mineirao Stadium. Included in the project was the complete reconstruction of the bottom tier, an extension of the roof, and upgrading to FIFA standards.

The construction of the new Mineirão Stadium took three years, and it reopened on 3 February 2013 with a friendly derby between Atlético and Cruzeiro.

Atletico did not come to an agreement and kept playing most matches at Estádio Independência, while Cruzeiro agreed on a lease to play the next 25 years at Mineirao.

The Mineirao Stadium hosted a total of six matches during the 2014 World Cup. These included the round of 16 match between Brazil and Chile (1-1) and the semi-final between Germany and Brazil (7-1). The stadium also served as one of the playing venues of the 2013 Confederations Cup.

How to get to Mineirao

Mineirão is located in the Pampulha area of Belo Horizonte, Brazil at about 9 kilometers from the downtown area. You can get to the stadium by bus 64. The bus departs from the Avenida Augusto de Lima in downtown Belo Horizonte and takes you to Estacao Venda Nova. The bus passes right in front of the stadium on its way there - it takes about 50 minutes to get there.

There is an alternative bus route that can be taken to get to the Avenida João Pinheiro. The journey will take the same amount of time as taking bus 64.

Address: Av. Antônio Abrahão Caram 1001, São Luiz, Pampulha, Belo Horizonte

I am not sure if I want to go to the party.
