With a current capacity for 76,500 spectators, the Governador Magalhes Pinto stadium, known as Mineiro, was inaugurated in 1965 and is located in the region of the Pampulha Architectural Complex. It is the main stage of soccer in Minas Gerais. From their lawns, star players such as Tosto, Reinaldo, Toninho Cerezo, Dirceu Lopes and Ronaldo emerged onto the world soccer scene.

The opening match took place on September 5, 1965, between the Minas Gerais team and the Argentine club River Plate. The game was attended by 73,201 payers, but at the opening, around 80,000 people attended. The Minas Gerais team won the game against the Argentines by 1-0, and the first official goal of the stadium was scored by Bugl, at the time a player for Atltico Mineiro.

The Mineiro receives, annually, the visit of 100,000 tourists. In the main hall, there is a preset exhibition of all times champion miners, from the amateur era to the present day. At the entrance to the stadium, plaques honor the clubs from Brazil and abroad that have passed through its lawn. In 1980, on land next to the stadium, a sports and events gymnasium, named Mineirinho, was built.

Another famous landmark, but bad for Brazilians, was the 7-1 defeat against Germany in the 2014 World Cup, the biggest rout suffered by the national soccer team in its history.
