This Friday, two local Brazilian football clubs—Santos FC and Macapá—will face each other at the Estádio Milton Corrêa, a multi-purpose stadium in the city of Macapá, Brazil. When the whistle blows at 5:00 PM local time, each team will defend the goal on their side. But that’s not the only thing they will be defending.

Estádio Milton Corrêa is the most centrally located stadium anywhere in the world. It straddles right over the equator. In fact, it’s so precisely built that the mid-field line coincides exactly with the equator line, so that each half of the field lies on a different hemisphere. In every soccer game that’s played here, each team isn't just defending its own goal. One side is defending the northern hemisphere, and the other side the southern hemisphere.
