Estádio Nacional de Brasília (formerly known as Estádio Mané Garrincha) is a multi-purpose stadium in Brasilia, Brazil. It is currently used mostly for football matches. The stadium holds 45,200. The stadium was built in 1974.

Estádio Mané Garrincha is owned by the Department of Sports, Physical Education and Recreation of Distrito Federal. The former name is taken after the footballer Mané Garrincha.



In 1974, the works on Estádio Mané Garrincha were completed. It was built when Garrincha was approximately 40 years old. The inaugural match was played on March 10 of that year, when Corinthians beat CEUB 2-1. The first goal of the stadium was scored by Corinthians' Vaguinho.

The stadium's attendance record currently stands at 51,000, set on December 20, 1998 when Gama beat Londrina 3-0 at the 1998 Série B final, which gave Gama its first national trophy and consequent promotion to Série A in 1999.

On December 8, 2007, the final of the first edition of the Copa do Brasil de Futebol Feminino, won by Mato Grosso do Sul/Saad, was hosted at Estádio Mané Garrincha.[1]

There are plans on reconstructing the stadium to increase its capacity to 71,000 as well as to reach the requirements for the 2014 World Cup, which will be held in Brazil. The stadium was renamed in early 2010 to the Estádio Nacional de Brasília and the reconstruction began on April of the same year. The reconstruction involves dismantling the lower tier and retaining the upper tier into the new rectangular bowl, and reducing the size of the playing field so that the stadium can be a football-specific stadium.

The stadium will also host some matches in the football tournament of the 2016 Summer Olympics to be held in Rio de Janeiro.[2]
