Corinthians Arena, Sao Paolo

Corinthians Arena, the home of Corinthians Football Club, was opened shortly before the 2014 FIFA World Cup, when it staged six games, including the opening match. Situated in the east of the São Paulo, Brazil's largest city and financial capital, it will host ten matches at the Rio 2016 Olympic Games. Less than one hour by air from Rio, ‘Sampa’ (as it is known locally) also boasts a rich cultural life and is a renowned gastronomy centre.
