History and description
Estadio Cachamay, officially called Centro Total de Entretenimiento Cachamay, got built between 1987 and 1990 to serve as the new flagship venue of the city of Guayana.
Back then, it consisted of one main stand and a second smaller stand on the opposite side, and it could hold about 14,000 spectators.
Estadio Cachamay got extensively redeveloped in 2006 with the perspective of the upcoming 2007 Copa América. New enclosed stands got built on three sides and the main stand got extensively redeveloped, tripling capacity as a result.
