Description: The Maracanã stadium (official name: Estádio Mário Filho, Maracanã being its neighborhood's name) in Rio de Janeiro (Brazil) is one of the biggest football stadiums in the world, and it is home of the four biggest football teams of Rio: Flamengo, Botafogo, Vasco da Gama and Fluminense.
These four clubs are part of the twelve biggest Brazilian football clubs.
The stadium, built for the 1950 World Cup, originally had a capacity of 200,000. However, its capacity was greatly reduced when it was converted to an all-seater in the 1990s; it can currently hold around 70,000 seated and 120,000 with standing room. It is now undergoing renovations that will increase its all-seated capacity to around 100,000.
