To have more fans in the first game after confirming the Serie B title, Cruzeiro will relocate Ituano fans to Mineirão, for the match next Wednesday, at 21:30 (Brasília time).
Congratulations, Cruise! Brazilian Serie B Champion!
Ituano fans will enter through the main hall of Mineirão and will be allocated in some sectors of cabins. Usually, visitors stay in part of the Upper Purple sector. As the next sector is normally occupied by Cruzeiro fans in large audiences, there is still a part of the chairs that are not sold to ensure safety separation between fans of the two clubs.

“Bora de Brasileirão! The biggest offer of games for a price that gives game. Sign the Premiere!”
Even with this separation, Cruzeiro put more than 59 thousand fans in the 3-0 victory over Vasco, in a match that confirmed access to the elite. With this agreement for the relocation of Ituano fans, it is very likely that Mineirão will receive more than 60,000 people on Wednesday.
Cruzeiro released a partial of tickets sold. Until this Sunday, there were about 50 thousand tickets sold. In the last three matches as home team, Raposa surpassed the mark of 50 thousand gifts.

There is still the possibility that Cruzeiro will beat Mineirão’s attendance record, since the renovation for the World Cup, completed in 2013. Atlético-MG, last year, put 61,573 people in the stadium in a match against Bragantino. The total capacity of the Gigante da Pampulha is almost 63 thousand fans.
Cruzeiro has the best average attendance in Serie B and is also the best home team in the competition, with 14 wins and two draws in 16 matches, considering commitments at Mineirão, Independência and Mané Garrincha.
