Nice shots. Good to see a packed house for a Brazilian match.
the four major state leagues had packed houses.

the above match was the final of the Rio Grande do Sul state league.


the Palmeiras-Santos match for the final of the São Paulo state league packed the Allianz Parque stadium...

the Botafogo-Vasco match for the Rio de Janeiro state league packed the Maracanã stadium

and the Atletico Mineiro-Caldense match for the Minas Gerais state league packed the Mineirão stadium.

^^ That is quite a bit lower then the original stated capacity right? Where does the difference come from?

When stadium was projected, the stand without chairs was created with twice steps than the normal ones, because is not neccessary a space to chair since everyone will stay stand up. This way, this sector would have two times more capacity compared with other similar sector with chairs. This stand was projected this way to allow the "Avalanche" also:


Unfortunatelly, on the second match on Stadium an accident occured when the "fence" broke due people forcing it and the force exerced by the Avalanche. This fence certainly was poorly projected:


Since this episode, the Porto Alegre's Police and Fire Department forced Grêmio to install guardrails and just sell the amount of tickets related to a sector with chairs, reducing the capacity a lot... :(
