According to the project delivered to the International Olympic Committee (IOC), the gymnasium “Gilberto Cardoso Maracanãzinho”, will stage the volleyball matches at the Games. However, for that it would require some adaptations, such as building two blocks of heating.

According to the original design, the blocks would be lifted at the location of the school that the governor announced to be demolished. Beside the blocks, it would be needed to adjust the central court and reshape the internal and external areas of the gymnasium.

Until today, there has been no official announcement, nor from the governor, nor from the IOC, on the situation. The press was only informed that there will be future meetings to discuss the issue.
