Whoever goes to the stadium will be able to visit one of the locker rooms, decorated with shirts of clubs that compete in the Brazilian Championship of the Series A, a warm-up room for the players and an area for press conferences. In the locker room, enjoy a video with historical football pitches, which serve as a warm-up for the highest point of the day: the entrance to the pitch. When you reach the edge of the sacred stage, you will even be able to sit on one of the reserve benches. In addition to the pitch, you will be taken back in time as you gaze upon historical features of the stadium, such as Pelé, Garrincha and Zico, and seven Brazilian jerseys worn by Manéna Copa de 62 and the ball and net of the game of the 1,000th goal of the King of soccer (Vasco x Santos, in 1969).

The tour has new features, such as pieces provided by Zico that promise to be a success among soccer lovers. Galinho de Quintino, known as the greatest scorer in the history of Maracanã, with 333 goals, gave articles from his private collection for the reopening of the tour, such as a Flamengo shirt worn in 1979; the world champion's track for Fla in 1981; the ball from the last game of his career, for Kashima Antlers (Japan), in 1994; and a boot he wore when he played for Udinese (Italy).
