Stadium will have 43,136 seats, but 17,000 of them will be able to be removed after the World Cup

Photo: Secopa/MT#The assembly of the metal structures of the north and south sectors of the Pantanal Arena in Cuiabá was finalised last week. Four thousand tons of these structures were allocated to the last two floors of these sectors, which will be removable. This allows for the reduction of around 17,000 seats from the 43,136 seats that will be used in the 2014 World Cup matches.

The last measurement pointed out that 45% of construction services at the Pantanal Arena have been finalised.  The figure should be updated until the end of the month, when a new assessment will be made at the building site.

The metals parts received the necessary finishing so that the stadium's side façades may be installed, which will be coated with a synthetic polyester membrane.   The assembly process of the metal structures is faster than for the pre-molded concrete parts.

The stands are being built at the upper levels of the west side. The assembly of the four porticos that will support the venue's rooftop cover has started recently. 30% of the porticos on the west and east sectors have been finished.
