The iconic stadium was originally constructed for the 1950 FIFA World Cup but received upgrades when Brazil hosted the 2014 FIFA World Cup, for which it staged seven matches, including the final. With a seating capacity of more than 78,000, it is the largest stadium in South America. It will host the Opening and Closing Ceremonies as well as some soccer matches.
