I decided to create a thread just to put some pictures of the Brazilian stadia, mainly those that will see some action in 2014. However, it can be also a space for other stadia that is currently being built or reformed. Feel free to post on it too. I will start with Maracana. How the stadium was changed from a three-tier to a single-tier bowl. Here is a picture of 1965: Now, one picture of a before-and-after the U$700,000,000.00 reform of 2007, without the stehplatz (the second-tier engulfed the lower one): Finally, the U$1,000,000,000.00 project for the 2014 World Cup (yep, that means almost 2 BILLION dollars in ten years!): The old third tier will go straight to the floor.
