The stadium was renamed in early 2010 to the Estádio Nacional Mané Garrincha and the construction began on April of the same year. The reconstruction involves dismantling the lower tier and retaining the upper tier into the new rectangular bowl, and reducing the size of the playing field so that the stadium can be a football-specific stadium.“
