A soccer stadium in Brazil where seven people died after the stands collapsed will be destroyed and a new one built in its place.
At least 40 others were injured Sunday night in Salvador in what was the worst accident in Brazilian soccer history. The victims fell about 50 feet through a hole that opened in the concrete stands as fans stormed the field to celebrate a scoreless tie.
In a report issued November 1st, architects flagged the stadium as being in the worst condition of 29 major Brazilian soccer stadiums surveyed ahead of the 2014 World Cup.
Officials say the stadium will be imploded and a new one is expected to be finished by the tournament.
Soccer's governing body says the collapse should not affect Brazil's hosting of the World Cup.
