Estadio das Dunas, Natal City Project to Push Through

April 15, 2011 saw the signing of contract to build the Estadio das Dunas in Natal City which will serves as one of the venues of the games for the FIFA World Cup 2014.  The contract signing was very well-attended by some 400 politicians, business leaders as well as representatives of the local football community. Rosalba Ciarlini, Governor of Rio Grande do Norte signed the contract with the company that will build the Estadioa das Dunas. “FIFA had faith in Natal and chose us as one of the venues for the World Cup,” she said. “And it has given us the even greater opportunity to increase the visibility and the profile of Natal. The people of this city want the FIFA World Cup here, and we now have a deadline to meet. In giving this project the go-ahead, all I am doing is discharging my duty.”

At the old site of Estadio Machadao, the new Estadio das Dunas will rise soon. The stadium’s design will be inspired by the famous dunes of Natal’s coastline. Building work will start as soon as possible. Supporting the project is the Venues Liaison Manager of the Local Organizing Committee, Fabio Starling. He was attending in behalf of LOC President Ricardo Teixeira. “We came here to give our support to the people here in Natal. We’ve worked together and taken the right steps to make the Estadio das Dunas project a reality. Our doors will remain open for anything they need and we would like to restate our firm belief that Natal will do its job and stage a fantastic FIFA World Cup.”, said Starling.

The Mayor of Natal, Micarla de Souza, spoke not without emotion of the significance of welcoming Brazil 2014 to the capital of Rio Grande do Norte: “Nearly a million people live in Natal and they can now see that the FIFA World Cup is really happening and is going to transform our city. This is a story of change we are creating here. This is not just about Natal hosting the World Cup and getting known throughout the world. Some things won’t go when the World Cup goes. There’s a legacy for our city, and when it’s over the viaducts will still be here, along with the transport and sanitation infrastructures, and the languages that workers will learn and the jobs it will create. We’re doing all that for ourselves, for everyone.”
