And, on the side facades, there will still be the signs of “Arena MRV”, identifying the company that names the place through the contract of naming rights, in the amount of R$ 70 million for a period of 15 years (extendable). Atlético’s badge is 12 meters long, in addition to another three meters of the golden star, which makes up the club’s main brand.

The MRV Arena has 80% of the internal works already completed and scratches the horizon of the capital of Minas Gerais. The completion of the stadium is scheduled for the end of the year. Its inauguration, however, depends on the Operating License, issued by the government.

There are seven months for the external works to be completed. Arena MRV’s first official event, called BH Festival, is scheduled for March 25, 2023, Galo’s birthday.
