Roof collapse caused by heavy rain at Arena Fonte Nova

Heavy rain caused part of the roof structure at one of the Confederation Cup and 2014 FIFA World Cup venues in Brazil to collapse this week. The Arena Fonte Nova in Salvador suffered damage when overnight rain gathered on the roof and caused one of 36 roof panels to collapse, causing damage to the canvas covering to the stands and the seats below.

The stadium is due to host its first match (between Nigeria and Uruguay) on 20 June. Fonte Nova Participacoes said in a statement: “Repair work has already started and will be concluded in time for the Confederations Cup. It’s an isolated incident. This situation would have never happened during an event because the arena is thoroughly inspected ahead of time.”
