He first match staged at the Beira-Rio was between the home side Internacional and Portuguese giants Benfica. The Brazilian side won the match by two goals to one. In 1972, the Brazilian National side took on a Rio Grande do Sull All-Stars eleven and drew three all. The exhibition match attracted over 106,000 spectators which is a record for the stadium.
