Fonte Nova (175)


Product Description


Salvador, Bahia, Brazil

Estádio Fonte Nova, also known as Estádio Octávio Mangabeira, is a football stadium inaugurated on January 28, 1951 in Salvador, Bahia, with a maximum capacity of 66,080 people. The stadium is owned by the Bahia government, and is the home ground of Esporte Clube Bahia.

The stadium is nicknamed Fonte Nova because it is located at Ladeira das Fontes das Pedras.

After part of the upper terraces collapsed, killing 7 people and injuring several others, the government of Bahia announced the demolition of Fonte Nova and the construction of a new stadium, the Arena da Bahia, in the same place.

Demolition of the Octavio Mangabeira Stadium began in June 2010 and is expected to be finished by August. The lower tier is being taken apart piece-by-piece, followed by the implosion of the upper tier. The Bahia Arena will be constructed on its former site.
