The Arena da Baixada was built in 1914 and is the home stadium of Clube Atletico Parananense. It was demolished in 1997 and rebuilt in 1999. In 2005 the name of the stadium was changed to the Kyocera Arena as the Japanese company, Kyocera, bought the naming rights. The sponsorship deal expired in early 2008 and was not renewed and therefore the stadium reverted to its original name. The first match staged at the stadium was in 1914 and contested between Flamengo and Internacional, who were the home team at the time, and resulted in a 7-1 win for the away side. When the stadium reopened current home side Atletico overcame Cerro Porteno of Paraguay by two goals to one.
