16th/17th FLAMENGO x MACAE
16th/17th AMERICA x BOTAFOGO

How can I get prices and purchase tickets for these games in April 2011? Thank you.

Sergio said...

Hi Linda,
Thanks for visiting the blog.
Well, tickets for any game in Rio are only put on sale about a week before the game and they cost around 40 to 60 Reais. You won't have problem to buy tickets to any of these games. No worries.
Contact me directly if you want further information or check the blog later for time and venue of these games.
Best regards,
Sergio

April 23rd/24th Rio Cup semis:

Will tickets to these games be hard to come by? We would be arriving in Rio April 22nd.

Sergio said...

Hi there,
Thanks for writing...
Well we can't tell now, but these games tend to be more atractive to people and become harder to come buy tickets. Usually tickets are on sale about a few days before the game and when it's a big game, long lines apears...
You will be arriving just one day before and won't have much time to go buy... Hotels usually offer packages and if I can get tickets I do also take people to games.
You can write me directly later to check it again or just to get more information.
Best regards,
Sergio

Hey Sergio,

thanks for putting together this beautiful blog. Are there any matches in Rio happening between today (March 29th and Saturday April 2) - at any Stadium in the city? Many thanks for your help.

danial

Sergio said...

Hi Danial,
Thanks for your comment.
From Today to Saturday 2nd April, we have only this game in Rio:
Saturday 2nd at 6:30pm Caxias x Flamengo at Engenhao Stadium.
Maracana is closed for repairing so most games are at Engenhao. Tickets may be put on sale from Wednesday and will be easy to buy.
Contact me directly if need more information.
Best Regards,
Sergio

glindog said...

Hey Sergio, any chance that you could take my friend and I to one of the Rio State Championship semis on Sunday, April 24? Let me know any details regarding ticket prices, etc. Thanks!

Sergio said...

Hi Glindog,
Thanks for visiting by.
Tickets for the Fla-Flu derby on 24th will be on sale from tomorrow (Wednesday) and they cost from 30 to 60 Reais. It's expected a big crowd on Sunday so it's better to buy it in advance. You can buy tickets at the stadium or at the clubs. Please write me directly if need further information, ok?
Best Regards,
Sergio

glindog said...

Is there any way that you can purchase the tickets for us, and we will reimburse you when we arrive? We won't get in to Rio until Friday, so we're worried that it will be sold out. Thanks for the info.

Sergio said...

Hi again,
I won't be able to go get tickets today and I don't know yet how many people are gong to buy. But I already have plenty of people contacting me for this game... And I am limited to 5 tickets.
But in any case, you can definetely book through your hotel when arriving. They might book you into a package.
Cheers,
Sergio

Molly said...

Hi Sergio,

Just wanted to say thank you so much for the schedules! I'm American, and was having such a hard time finding schedules for Fluminense games for when I'm going to be in Rio in June. I appreciate this very much, thanks again!

Molly

Sergio said...

Hi Molly.
Thanks for visiting the blog and taking your time to comment on it.
I apreciated that.

Yes Maracana is closed for games until 2013 when it will be open again for the FIFA Confederation Cup. However it's possible to visit it and see how works are going on.
E-mail me if need more information.

Hi Sergio,

Really useful blog, thank you. Are there any games in Rio on December 21st or 22nd 2011? I am passing through Rio with my son and we would love to see a game.

Thanks,

Sergio said...

Dear Guy,
Thanks for visiting the blog.
Unfortunately the football season in Brazil ends at first week of December and starts again around 15th January. I'm sorry man.
Please feel free to contact me at anytime you need further information.
Best Regards,
Sergio

anais said...

Hello Sergio,

my husband and me want to see the game between Fluminense and vasco de gama the 27th november 2011.
Do you know if I can buy the tickets 2 weeks before?
If it's not possible, can you take the places and we will pay you back (because we will be in Rio only 2 days the 12nd november and the 27th november)?
Thank you for your answer

Sergio said...

Hi Anais,
Thanks for contacting me.
I highly recommend you the Fluminense x Vasco game because both teams are from Rio and are well placed at the League right now. It also means that this game will atract more people, will be more exciting and will probably be soldout. Because of that, tickets will be dificult to get. They're put on sale in general about a week before the game at the clubs involved and at the stadium.
Unfortunately I can't offer a tour for that game just because of dificulty of getting tickets...
You can contact your hotel and ask them to get into a package. It costs more but if you arrive late, it may garantee you a place at the game.
Please let me know if you need more information, ok?
Best regards,
Sergio
