Nowadays, 'Inter', as it is called in these parts, has achieved as much glory as their arch-rival Gremio. Beira-Rio underwent a massive refurbishment to host matches during the in 2014 FIFA World Cup. Popular artists and bands like Justin Bieber, Paul McCartney, John Mayer, Green Day and the Foo Fighters have performed at this stadium over the years.
