The new Arena Corinthians hosted the opening match of the 2014 World Cup. This stadium has long been the dream of the Sports Club Corinthians Paulista and its construction was finally made possible as a result of the Brazil Word Cup. The ground has a permanent capacity of 48,000 spectators which was extended to 68,000 over the World Cup. Work on the stadium began in May 2011 and the design and construction were carried out simultaneously and in record time. The prefabricated structure of the Arena is composed of over 20,000 components, some of which being already prefabricated while other larger elements were built at a plant on site.
