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,

I'm going to stay Rio from 12th to 16th of April 2017. I would like to know if my schedule could match with any soccer match. May you advise me?

Many thanks.

Best Regards,
Jessie

Sergio said...

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.
Cheers.

Hi Sergio,

Nice to hear from you! I will prefer the RIO CUP final if time fits me on 16/4, otherwise 12/4. Do you know the match time on 16/4?

And may I know your email please? Have a nice day!

Best Regards,
Jessie

Sergio said...

Hi Jessie,

Hi Sergio,

I will be in Rio from May 29th to June 3rd. Are there any games during those days? Where can I get the tickets and how much are they?.

Thank You!

Matt Piercy said...

Hi Sergio, I am travelling to brazil for about a month in September and want to watch as many matches as possible. I was wondering whether you could help with a few things.

Firstly brazil have an match on 31st August and I would love to go. When they confirm the venue, how is the best way to get tickets??

Secondly, how do I go about getting tickets for normal league matches e.g.9th or 10th september - Botafogo x Flamengo (DERBY). Do tickets normally sell out or can you buy them on the day??

Thank you and your help would be much appreciated

Regards
Matt

Sergio said...

Hi Matt,
Thanks for visiting the blog.
Games venues and dates are usually confirmed by about 2 or 3 weeks before the game.
So tickets are usually put in sale only about a few days before the game. For most of the games it's possible to buy tickets at the stadium at the game day.
Brazil's game for World Cup Qualification may be confirmed by a month before the game. But that game in August is already known that will not be played in Rio
Please contactc me directly for any further information,ok?
I'm glad to help.
Cheers,
Sergio

Matt Piercy said...

Thank you so much Sergio. You have put on your blog that the brazil v Chile game should be at the maracana. Does this mean that it will definitely be played in rio?

Thanks
Matt

Sergio said...

Hi Matt.
The game Brazil vs Chile will be the last game of the World Cup Qualyfication and is supposed to be played at Maracana, but the Football Confederation still need to confirm it, ok?

Phillip Li said...

Hi Sergio, we are in Rio on the 14th June, are tickets still available (3X) for Flamengo vs. Ponte Preta that night?

Sergio said...

Hi Phillip,
Thanks for contacting me.
Tickets for Flamengo vs Ponte Preta are still available.
But Flamengo is selling a package with 3 games for club members and that game will be played at a small stadium in the suburbs (NOT at Maracana stadium).
Please check at your hotel about availability.
I hope it helps.
Contact me directly if you need any further information.
Best regards,
Sergio

Allison said...

Hi Sergio. We will be in Rio Sept 5-9 (flying out the evening of the 9th). I see a game on the 9th. What time are they usually held? Are there other games on weekdays? We will also be in São Paulo Aug 28-30--would it be easier to see a game there? Hard to find info online. :( Thank You.

Zoe Avery said...

Hi Sergio,

Thanks for your blog. I see the match Fluminense v Cruzeiro isn't going to be played at the Maracana. Do you know whether the match Fluminense v Corinthians on Sunday 23 July will be at the maracana yet?

Many thanks

Sergio said...

Hi Zoe.
Thanks for visiting the blog.

Please email me directly then for any çater information. I'm glad to help.

I will be in Rio from November 15-20, 2017, coming from Sao Paulo. I was hoping to go to Flamengo x Corinthians. Flamengo seem to be playing most of their games at Arena Luso Brasileira, which is outside of the city. Is it possible to get to the stadium from central Rio? It doesn't seem very convenient to get to. The stadium also seems quite small and pretty poor quality.

Hi Zubair,
Thanks for visiting the blog and contacting me.
Unfortunately the football season ends on 3rd December 2017.
The 2018 season only starts by the end of January 2018.
Sorry about that man.
Cheers.

Hi Stephen,
Thanks for visiting the blog and contacting me.
Maracana stadium became too expensive after World Cup 2014. So clubs are playing at small stadiums.
Flamengo renovated the Arena Luso Brasileira (now called Ilha do Urubu). It's a 17.000 people stadium near the international airport. Very difficult access and expensive tickets.
Flamengo x Corinthians is a big game and there is a small possibility that game may be played at Maracana, but we will only know later in october...
Please contact me directly if you need any further information.
Cheers.

Hi
I'm in rio on Aug 23rd - Botafago are playing at home . How best to get 1 ticket / get to stadium (where will it be) or part of a tour?peter

Sergio said...

Hi Pete,
Thanks for visiting the blog.
The definition of the venue will be defined next Monday (31st).
It's for Brazil's Cup semifinal. First game on 16th, but we don't know yet who play at home one and another games: Botafogo will play at Olympic stadium (NOT Maracana) and Flamengo wil play at Ilha do Urubu (small stadium in the suburbs). Unfortunatelly Maracana stadium WILL NOT be used.
But for sure both games will atract many people.
Tickets aren't yet on sale and will be available at both clubs.
Maybe your best option is to catch a package.
Please contact me directky if you need any further information.
Cheers,
Sergio

Thank You

Hi Karl,
I have already emailed you.
But any official footbal information must come from the Brazilian Football Confederation at www.cbf.com.br . Unfortunatelly few informations are in English.
Thanks for contacting me.
Cheers.

Hi Sergio,

We're thinking of visiting Rio from 28 Mar 2018 to 31 Mar 2018. Will there be any matches available during that time in Maracana? If not, will there be any matches available at Maracana 10 days before or after those 4 days. As we haven't booked flight yet, we can still adjust our schedule in order to be able to catch a game at Maracana. Doesn't really matter which game or what kind of seat, but we do want to visit Maracana specifically. When would you update the 2018 schedules?

Many thanks!!

Hi Grace.
Sorry for the delayed answer. I am travelling right now.
Look, the 2018 schedule hasn't been yet released. But during that period you will be here we will be playing the Rio State League and games may be available specially at weekends.
I will publish the schedule as soon as it's confirmed. It may happen only by October.. .
Please contact me directly if you need any further information.
Thanks.

Hi Sergio,

I really want to go to the flemengo game at the maracana on Thursday. Do you know how I can get a ticket?

Many thanks

Hi Matt.

That game is soldout.
Please check at your hotel about availability for a package (ticket+transport).
