On the 28th of September a general assembly approved for the construction of the new stadium, and a mere 48 hours later work had already began on a 178,689 square meter area. The 65,000 seats could stretch up to 50km in length.

The stadium was built in record time, taking 25 months to finish the «Cathedral» and having it ready to receive the fans.
