There is a football stadium where the midline lies exactly on the Equator

Estádio Milton Corrêa, usually known as Zerão, is a multi-purpose stadium located in Macapá, Brazil. Zerão means Big Zero, denoting the zeroth latitude – Equator. The name (and the fame) come from the unusual circumstance that the midfield line supposedly lies exactly on the Equator – zero latitude – thus causing each team to defend one hemisphere. It is used mostly for football matches.
