    The city of Natal with its 800 thousand inhabitants is not only the administrative capital of the Brazilian state of Rio Grande do Norte, but also its main football hub being the hometown of its three largest teams.

    Four of the matches of the 2014 FIFA World Cup will be hosted by the city, all promise to be really exciting.

    Estadio das Dunas

    The city of Natal had a very prominent and well known stadium called Machadao that was inaugurated in 1972, but this was not modern and large enough to host matches during the 2014 FIFA World Cup. So the old was completely demolished to give space to the new.

    That is how The Estadio das Dunas came to life. The new arena got its name from the breathtaking sand dunes that the area of Natal is famous for and also its special design is  imitating the form of these natural landscape.
