Manaus officials said they aim to hold the first match to test the stadium on January 15, with the 10,000 workers who participated in the stadium's construction serving as spectators.
Delays in the unblocking of federal financing for the venue slowed construction, causing FIFA to push back its original December deadline for stadium delivery.
