  • Go to Salvador for the 2014 FIFA World Cup

    Arena Fonte Nova

    Arena Fonte Nova

    The capital of the Brazilian state of Bahia, Salvador is located on the north-eastern part of the country and is home to about 2.7 million people. It is probably the perfect example of the collusion of the African, Native and Portuguese culture with colorful colonial houses, circles of capoeira on the markets and the rites of Condomble.

    As many large cities, Salvador is also separated into two groups of rivaling fans of the city’s two big football teams, the Esporte Clube Bahia and the Esporte Clube Victoria. 

    Arena Fonte Nova, Salvador

    The brand new Arena Fonte Nove in Salvador can accommodate over 52 thousand spectators. The old stadium, built in 1951, was demolished in 2010 to give space to the new one that was designed after the old arena.
