SAO PAULO (AP) Fans of one of Brazil's most popular soccer clubs will have a chance to spend eternity near some of their greatest idols.

Corinthians said it is building its own cemetery, complete with a mock soccer field and VIP tribunes where some of the team's greatest players will be offered burial spaces.

The "Corinthians Forever" cemetery is expected to open late in 2015, but fans can already start booking one of the 70,000 burial places available.
