Opened in 1974, and renovated for the 2014 World Cup at an eye-watering cost of US$900 million, this stadium in Brasilia was named after the Brazilian footballing legend Mané Garrincha, who won the World Cup twice with Brazil. But after the World Cup leaves, what do you do with a 73,000 capacity football stadium in a city which doesn't even have a football team in the top three divisions? Some matches attract only a few hundred spectators, and the stadium has been rented out for weddings, obstacle courses and less-than-prestiguous events like the the 42nd Congress of the Brazilian Zoos and Aquariums Society.
