The stadium is located with great nature appeal, which area amounts to approx. 27 hectares. It provides capacity to receive up to 46,000 people. It is installed within environmental protection areas and has strategic location. It is also integrated to the World Cup City, a new urban center that houses residential, business, educational and entertainment areas that contribute for the development and expansion of Recife metropolitan region.

Several devices present in the arena emphasize its sustainable feature, such as mechanisms that favor better utilization of natural ventilation and lighting; rainwater reuse and water heating systems by using solar panels installed on the rooftop; installation of photovoltaic panels for power generation by solar energy; use of recyclable materials, such as ETFE film (used by the first time in a project in Latin America), present in the entire side closure of the arena; among others.
