Grêmio Arena

Key facts

Club: Grêmio FBPA | Opening: 2012 | Capacity: 60,450

History and description

The Grêmio Arena was built to provide Grêmio with a modern home to replace Estádio Olímpico Monumental.

The project kicked off in 2007 when a project consortium was set up, and in 2008 a site was selected in the north of the city of Porto Alegre.

Council approval was received in late 2008, and building works began in September 2010. The Grêmio Arena officially opened on the 8th of December 2012 with a grand show and a friendly between Grêmio and Hamburger SV.

Even though the Grêmio Arena complies with all FIFA requirements, it has not been selected to serve as a playing venue for the 2014 World Cup. Instead, this honour will go to the renovated Estádio Beira-Rio of local rivals Internacional.

Getting there

The Grêmio Arena is located in the Humaitá area in the north of the city of Porto Alegre, about 8 kilometres from Porto Alegre’s historic city centre.

The stadium can be reached with line 1 (the only line) of the metro. Take a train at station Mercado in Porto Alegre’s historic centre and get off at station Anchieta, which is right next to the arena.
