Opened in 1977, the Estadio Bezerrao is situated in the administrative region of Gama, 30 kilometres from Brasilia, the capital of Brazil. The stadium has hosted Copa do Brasil matches and its most recent renovation was marked by a friendly between Brazil and Portugal, a game that ended in a 6-2 win for the hosts. Brazil’s U-23 team used it as a training base for the Men’s Olympic Football Tournament Rio 2016.
The stadium will host 12 matches in the group phase of the FIFA U-17 World Cup Brazil 2019 – including the opening match – two Round-of-16 ties, both semi-finals and the final.
