To recap these moments, FUTBOX.com has decided to pay a homage to Vasco da Gama Stadium, better known as São Januário. The nickname is an allusion to the name of one of the access roads to the monument located in the city of Rio de Janeiro owned by the Vasco da Gama Yatch Club.
Inaugurated in 1927, it was the largest stadium in South America until 1930, when the works at Estadio Centenario in Montevideo (URU) were finished to host the first edition of the World Cup.
In 2007 São Januário Stadium became the stage of the thousandth goal by striker Romario and was chosen as the inspiration for the "FUTBOX Stadium". The Reconstituted animated shots take place at Colina Stadium, as can be seen by the facade, roof and bleachers of the model.
