Built in about two and a half years, the Arena das Dunas was given to Natal population on December 31, 2013, and had its inaugural football match on January 26, 2014, with a double round of America (RN) and Confiança (SE) by the Nordeste Cup and ABC (RN) x Alecrim (RN) by the Potiguar Championship. Stage four games of the FIFA World Cup in June 2014, received more than 158,000 fans during the days of the event. Especially the duel between world champions Italy and Uruguay. It was the 3rd best rated among the World Cup arenas by the Portal UOL research addressing items such as food, access, volunteers, mobile operation, safety and cleanliness / comfort. In January 2016, it was classified by the Brazilian System Stadiums Classification (Sisbrace) as the best arena in the Brasil, being the only stadium to receive top marks on all counts. Two electronic screens of 60m² each, sound system and modern ticketing, parking with internal and external spaces, 25 areas for the sale of food and beverages, VIP and VVIP room with exclusive seating, hospitality lounges and an outdoor plaza area with 22.000m² perfectly inserted in one of the best and most central districts in Natal. With capacity for 31,375 spectators (during the World Cup were approximately 42,000 seats, thanks to the installation of mobile stands), the arena was designed to receive not only sporting events, but also from small private or corporate events, until big shows and national and international meetings.

This is a beautiful arena and it was my first time as I attended a Roberto Carlos concert. It appears they tried to cut costs on the inside. No escalators, etc;; Bathrooms though are well kept.

This was the first leg of our trip to Brazil for the World Cup. The stadium was brand new and in great shape for the game. The people of Brazil are amazing.

We went to three games at the stadium during world cup. There was not a bad view in the house. Bathrooms were nice and clean. Food options were a bit limited...but that may be do to world cup sponsorships. Well Done!!
