Hi Sergio, i'm thinking of visiting Rio in May 2017 and would like to know if there are any matches scheduled at the Maracana, preferably Flamengo. Hope you can help me

Sergio said...

Hi Nicholas.
Thanks for visiting the blog.
Maracana stadium is now closed and finding a new owner process.
Main games are now being played at Olympic Stadium.
I believe that in May, Maracanna will be back to activity. And for sure there are plenty of football games in Rio in May. At the beggining of the month we have the Rio's State Championship final game and Flamengo playing a Libertadores Cup game. The following week starts the Brazilian Championship.
Please write me directly if you need any further information.
Cheers.
Sergio

Hi Sergio, I'm planning being at Rio from 18th to 25th of March 2017. My friend loves soccer and I want to surprised her with tickets of any soccer match, preferly at Maracana Stadium.
Let me know if you can help me or the options I could have.
Best Regards,

Nhazly.


PS: I tried to contact directly, but I couldn't

Sergio said...

Hi Nhazly,
Thanks for visiting the blog.
Maracana stadium is now closed and I believe that situation may remains a bit longer...
During your staying here we have plenty of options. The best games are the derbies.
While Maracana is closed, the derbies have been played at Olympic Stadium.
Tickets are only available a few days before each games and usually games aren't soldout. But you can't buy them now.
Please contact me directly if you need any further information, ok?
Best regards,
Sergio

Hi Sergio
I'm traveling with some friends from Mexico to Rio for 24-27 March, we are very interested to assist to a match (I have read your previous posts about the situation of Maracana) We will be staying in Copacabana and interested in the Flamengo vs Vasco 25th March, could you give us information about the tour service (transportation to Olyimpic Stadium, ticket and transport back to the hotel) for 4 people.

Sergio said...

Hi Jorge.
Thanks for visiting the blog.
The derby Flamengo x Vasco first scheduled for saturday 25th can be moved to sunday 26th.
Also the venue hasn't yet been confirmed: it can be at Maracana stadium, Olympic Stadium or even outside Rio.It may be defined by Monday 20th.
Unfortunately the bad organization and the Maracana situation lead us to know the location of the game only a few days before the game.
I usually accompany people to football games, but only at Maracana stadium.
Please email me directly later to know more about that game.
I will be updating the blog with confirmed informations the sooner they're announced.
Thanks again.
Cheers.
Sergio

Sergio, we are in Rio,and would like to see soccer match on Sunday, march 19th. At our hotel they told us the tickets are sold out..Any suggestions? Thx.

Sergio said...

Hi there.
Thanks for visiting the blog.
Maybe you should ask some other hotel. I haven't heard about that game being soldout.
Its on sale on internet, but maybe you would need a Brazilian ID. Go for Botafogo club. They are selling tickets till 5pm.
Contact me direct if need any further information.
Cheers.

Hi Sergio,

When the championship starts again on 14 May what days of that weekend are the games likely to be played on?

We will be in Rio from 8th to 18th May and want to plan a trip to Iguacu but want to make sure that we will be in Rio when there is likely to be a game on. Are they only played on Saturday and Sunday?

Obrigado,
Stewart

Sergio said...

Hi Stewart,
Thanks for visiting the blog and contacting me.
From 8th to 18th May, we only have games on the weekend 13th/14th. But remark both will not be played at Maracana stadium, ok?
There are 2 games scheduled for that weekend, but we don't know yet if both games will be on sunday or one game on saturday and another on sunday. For that particular week we don't have evening games on wednesday/thursday, but it can change. We have Brazil Cup games being played at same time, but it depends on if a team from Rio get qualifyed or not, ok?
Please contact me directly for any further information.
I'm glad to help.
Cheers,
Sergio

Hi, Sergio,

Many thanks.

HI Jessie,
Thanks for visitinng the blog and contacting me.
There are 2 BIG games for you to attend:
12th April Flamengo x Atletico PR. It's for Libertadores Cup (South American Champions League) and is CONFIRMED for Maracana Stadium.
16th April RIO CUP final. It's a final game at Rio's Cup Competition, but we don't know yet who plays and where the game will take place.
Both games are very good options.
Tickets will only be available by a few days before the game.
Please email me directly for any further information, ok? I'm glad to help.
