Football 'mecca' offers second wave of world cup fever for Brazil

by Katie Buckley | 14 Jul 2014

Despite Germany’s attempt at crushing Brazil’s spirits in the 2014 Fifa World Cup, the nation's love of football has not been completely kicked to the wayside as plans have been unveiled for the world’s first Football Entertainment Centre to be built in Rio De Janeiro, allowing Brazil’s football legacy and love affair with the beautiful game, to continue.

To be constructed in the form of a giant football which will be constantly rotating as well as morphing into different shapes, The Dynamic Football Experience Company alongside Navalmare Group have announced that they will start building a new mecca for football fans following the end of the 2014 World Cup.

The rotating ball is to include a fully interactive football museum with a floor dedicated to virtual and augmented reality football games. Hologram systems – originally developed using NASA technology – will allow visitors to the attraction the chance to play alongside Pele and Neymar as well as other football legends.

A virtual stadium will also be part and parcel of the design; with the use of a 360 degree screen, fans will be transported to Santiago Bernabeu Stadium in Madrid, Spain where games can be watched in real time. The design also features amenities such as restaurants and shops as well as a gym and conference areas.

This is the first of an several intended football experience developments by Navalmare and the Dynamic Group. The two companies intend to build the structures in Italy and roll them out in cities around the world, including London and New York.
