The Estádio Beira-Rio is one of the most remarkable soccer arenas in South America. Located in the southern Brazilian city of Porto Alegre, it hosted one of the group stages of the 2014 World Cup, with teams competing to advance to the knockout phase. While that spectacular sports event is now over, it has left a swath of magnificent stadiums that were either built from scratch or modernized, such as the Estádio Beira-Rio, which was inaugurated in 1969 and was expanded prior to the 2014 World Cup. Proudly called the “Gigante da Beira-Rio” by the locals, this stadium, when not hosting World Cup games, is home to one of the best teams in the Brazilian Série A league. It can now seat more than 50,000 spectators – and its newly designed galleries are an architectural dream.
