“I was with President Landim. The Olympic Park area is a special area that is getting more difficult. I made a suggestion from Deodoro, because there is Transolympica, the train is coming. Landim came up with the idea of ​​a gas meter. We even launched a station using part of the Gasometer, which is also a private area,” he said.

“I just think that Gasómetro is very close to São Janorio (laughs). It is also a special territory of the Caixa Econômica Federal. On the city council side, no problem, they (Pedro Paolo and Landim) will continue to piss him off. Now, it is negotiations between Flamingo to do with Caixa Economica. I will help.”

“It is a complex process, this gas meter area is the most valuable in Puerto Maravilla, Flamengo will have to be very adept at a private construction solution in order to finance the stadium. He concluded that the guarantee of the mayor of Vasco is that all efforts will be made for the sake of our long-awaited stadium.”

In an interview with the site General Electricflamingo head, Rodolfo Landim said the stadium moment is to study the available spaces.

“The current stage is to conduct a comprehensive survey of the available areas within Rio, speak to the city council, identify potential logistical bottlenecks, aspects of fan flow, and analyze the feasibility of each of the areas we are looking at,” he noted. .

To be honest, we’re looking at a little bit of everything.See what’s available to try and find the best area for us to delve into these feasibility analyses. But the process is still very preliminary.”
