2014 FIFA World Cup Host City - Manaus
Support the 2014 FIFA World Cup Host City of Manaus, with official FIFA Merchandise! Since it was first inhabited in 1669, Manaus steadily evolved into the capital of the state of Amazonas and finally into the metropolis of the Amazon. Manaus is now the 12th most populous city in Brazil, with just over two million inhabitants, and became an economic powerhouse during the 20th century. Vivaldo Lima stadium, also known as the Vivaldão, is the most important football ground in Amazonas and has been hosting the state's decisive matches since its inauguration on 5 April 1970, when the Brazilian national team stopped by Manaus a few days before travelling to Mexico for the FIFA World Cup™. Brazil defeated an Amazonas State Team 4-1. For the next FIFA World Cup, the Vivaldão will be turned into one of the most beautiful stadiums in Brazil, the 42,618-seater Arena Amazônia.
