MARACANA STADIUM RIO DE JANEIRO BRAZIL:

Maracana Stadium was inaugurated on the 24th of july of 1950. Marana Stadium, Brazil, was originally called "Estadio Municipal", but in 1964, it received it's actual name, "Mário Filho", in honour to the sports jornalist and founder of the "Journal dos Sports".

Anyways, for the locals it has always been "Estadio Maracana", (Maracana Stadium), and most probably will remain the same. The name Maracana derives from a bird of the region and also because Maracana is the name of the neighobourhood where the stadium is located.

 

The world's largest football stadium, Maracana, was built for World Cup IV, that was held in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, in 1950. Brazil unfortunately lost to Uruguay that year at Maracana Stadium, but today it's the only nation in the world to hold 5 titles.
