Club: Grêmio FBPA | Opening: 2012 | Capacity: 60,450
History and description
The Arena do Gremio was built to provide Gremio 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 8 December 2012 with a grand show and a friendly between Gremio and Hamburger SV.
Even though the Gremio Arena complies with all FIFA requirements, it was not selected to serve as a playing venue for the 2014 World Cup. Instead, this honour went to the renovated Estádio Beira-Rio of local rivals Internacional.
How to get to the Arena do Gremio
