Estadio Olimpico

The Estadio Olimpico was built in 1940 and officially opened a year later. Situated in the centre of Goiania, the capital of the state of Goias, in central-western Brazil, it is named in honour of the city’s founder, Pedro Ludovico Teixeira, and was its first official sports facility. Refurbished in 2016, it is home to Goiania Esporte Clube and will provide the venue for six group matches at the FIFA U-17 World Cup Brazil 2019, two Round-of-16 games, and two quarter-finals.
