We will leave the hotels of the passengers in direction to the north zone of the city to visit the Stadium of the Journalist Mario Filho, or Maracanã, possibly one of the most famous soccer stadiums of the world of this sport.
Built for the 1950 World Cup and revitalized for the 2014 World Cup, where it hosted the final matches of the championship, Maraca is also the scene of the glories of Rio de Janeiro`s teams.
We will visit the outside of the stadium, where the iconic statue of Mauro Bellini, historic captain of the Brazilian team, is located. As we enter Maracanã, we will learn about the history and curiosities of Brazilian soccer through historical pieces and objects donated by outstanding players in the stadium, such as balls, shirts, boots, including those of King Pelé and the stars Zico and Garrincha. In addition, we can visit the locker room and the warm-up room, but the best part is for the end of the tour.
We will be able to enter the access tunnel to the field feeling the butterflies in our stomachs that the players feel on match days and step on the field, thus fulfilling the dream of millions of Brazilians.
We will sit on the benches and climb on the chairs in the Maracanã Mais sector, experiencing what the fans feel on match days.
Finally, we will close the tour in the press conference room and then return to the passengers` hotels.
