Brazil’s stadiums got an extensive make-over for the 2014 World Cup. The massive concrete colossuses of the past were replaced with a new set of giants and most of Brazil’s leading clubs now play in modern arenas. Unfortunately, due to high ticket prices and crowd trouble, Brazil’s stadiums still do not consistently fill up, though on the right day nothing beats a game at a classic ground like Maracana or Morumbi.
