Estadio do Maracana

The Maracana (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) is the biggest soccer stadium in South America despite recieving a severe undersizing in capacity over the years, mostly due to the 1992 disaster when one of the stands collapsed, killing three supporters. The stadium now holds 82,238 fans and is usually the host for the big Rio derbies between Vasco, Flamengo, Fluminense and Botafogo. The Maracana's most famous moment is probably somewhat of a sports tragedy in Brazilian eyes, hosting the 2-1 defeat against Uruguay in the 1950 World Cup in the Finals Group, a match attended by nearly 200,000 fans.
