Estádio do Maracanã is an Atomic Era Wonder in Civilization VI. It must be built on flat land adjacent to an Entertainment Complex with a Stadium.

  • Effects:
    • +6 Civ6Culture Culture and +2 Amenities6 Amenities in each city of the owner's civilization.

StrategyEdit

Before the release of Gathering Storm, Estádio do Maracanã is a Wonder that does not seem to serve any particular purpose. It gives rather similar empire-wide bonuses to the Colosseum, but arrives so late in the game that neither of its bonuses really matter. Considering this is the last Wonder in the game, unlocked at the penultimate civic, the extra Civ6Culture Culture seems redundant.

With the release of Gathering Storm, a new era is introduced and the extra Civ6Culture Culture is actually used for something. Estádio do Maracanã still does not become super useful, but at least now it is given a clearer purpose (i.e. unlocking your Future Era civics a bit faster). Still, if you manage to build this Wonder and have enough cities in your empire to make its bonus really meaningful, you're probably going to win the game regardless. Although it's a nice-looking Wonder, there's never a reason to make it a key part of any strategy.

Civilopedia entryEdit

Officially the Estadio Jornalista Mario Filho – must have been a heck of a sports writer to get a stadium named after him – but better known as the Maracanã, the futebol stadium is part of a large complex in the heart of Rio de Janeiro. Begun in 1948 AD, after Brazil had won the right to host the FIFA World Cup, it was opened (more-or-less, for construction was not complete) for the first matches in that contest in 1950. Unfortunately, heavily favored Brazil was upset in the final by the team from Uruguay, 2-1, before a crowd of 199,854 rabid fans – making it the world’s largest (and loudest) stadium at the time. Since then the Maracanã has served as host to the Pan-American Games, another World Cup, numerous concerts and cultural events, and thousands of soccer matches. Having been renovated to a smaller capacity (78,838) and more comfortable accommodations (including 292 new toilets), the stadium hosted the Olympics (Summer, obviously) for the first time in 2016.
