The Estádio Fonte Nova, also known as Estádio Octávio Mangabeira, is a football stadium inaugurated on January 28, 1951 in Salvador, Bahia, with a maximum capacity of 66,080 people. The stadium is owned by the Bahia government, and is the home ground of Esporte Clube Bahia. Its formal name honors Octávio Cavalcanti Mangabeira, a civil engineer, journalist, and former Bahia state governor from 1947 to 1954. After part of the upper terraces collapsed, killing 7 people and injuring several others, the government of Bahia announced the demolition of Fonte Nova and the construction of a new stadium, the Arena da Bahia, in the same place. The stadium is nicknamed Fonte Nova because it is located at Ladeira das Fontes das Pedras. #bahia #brasil #clube #estadio #fonte #football #futbol #nova #salvador
