Estádio da Ressacada History

Estádio da Ressacada first opened in 1982 with the inaugural match held on 15th November between the Avai and Vasco da Gama who spoiled the party by defeating the home side 6-1. Previously Avai had played their home matches at Estádio Adolfo Konder but the 1930s stadium was slowly becoming outdated and with a capacity of 14,000 it was deemed too small to match the team’s ambition.

Designed by Brazilian architect, Davi Ferreria Lima,  the club acquired a plot of land close to the Hercílio Luz International Airport within the Carianos neighbourhood. Privately funded by Avai FC, it is formally named Estadio Aderbal Ramos da Silva after the former Florianopolis governor politician and local supporter, however it is commonly referred to as just Ressacada.

Like a lot of South American football leagues which benefit from a warm climate and long days of sunshine, Estádio da Ressacada by default wasn’t equipped with floodlights. It wasn’t until three years after opening on May 31st 1986 that lights were installed at the stadium. The inaugural floodlight match was held against Fluminense.

Used to host three matches of the Brazilian national team in 1987, 1994 and 1996, the stadium’s capacity currently sits at 17,800. The ground’s record attendance occurred on July 17th 1988 when Avai defeated Blumenau 2-1 in the Campeonato Catarinense final.
