The Maracaná stadium, which will host the final on 7 July, will receive more than 4,300 m² of visual material in the tournament, which ranges from giant panels to stickers and stands.
The Local Organizing Committee of CONMEBOL Copa América Brazil 2019 began to dress the six stadiums distributed by the five host cities that will host the 26 matches of the oldest national team tournament in the world starting on June 14. The visual communication, which sets the atmosphere of the competition, was inspired by the characteristics of the South American people themselves, who stand out around the world for their cheerful, festive, supportive and spontaneous manner.
The Maracaná Stadium, stage of the July 7 final, will receive more than 4.300 m² of visual material, with emphasis on giant panels, adhesives, tarpas and bleachers. If the six stadiums are added, there will be more than 21.000m² in surrounding areas, ranging from the outer front to the changing rooms. The other five stadiums will receive the following meters: Arena Fonte Nova (4.000 m²); Arena del Corinthians (3.850 m²); Mineirão (3.800 m²): Morumbi (3.100 m²) and Arena del Gremio (1.950 m²).
In addition to the six stadiums that will host some of the world’s top football stars, they will adopt the look and feel of CONMEBOL Copa América Brazil 2019 and the buses that will transport the 12 participating delegations.
“The official communication in the stadiums motivates the climate of competition, less than 10 days before the opening of CONMEBOL Copa América 2019 in Brazil. Everything was designed and thought out in every detail to be eternalized in the memory of the fans who will participate in the biggest celebration of South American football” explains Agberto Guimarães, Director of Operations of the Local Organizing Committee of CONMEBOL Copa América Brazil 2019.
