Hi Sergio
We’re three boys from Denmark who is in Rio in the end of february — when Flamingo vs River Plate is on. Is it possible to get trickets and is there something er should be aware of?

Please contact me directly for further information.

Donald Straathof said...

Hi Sergio, thank you for publishing this info! It is the best overview on the internet! I would like to take my girlfriend to the state final game on April 8 in Maracana. Can you advise on how, where and when we can get tickets? And maybe which area in the stadium is best.. Thanks! Donald

Sergio said...

Hi Donald,
Thanks for visiting the blog.
That game on 8th April is supposed to be played at Maracana stadium. We don't know yet who is going to be playing that final. Tickets will only be available by a few days before the game anyway. You can not book them now.
Tickets will be available at the clubs first to members and the to general public. Remaining tickets are usually available at the stadium. It all depends on who is going to play.
Please contact me direct at my email for any further information, ok?
Thanks again.
Best regards,
Sergio

Racquel said...

Hi Sergio, I'm interested in going to the game this Sunday, March 4, at 7:30pm. Can you share the details?

Sergio said...

Hi Racquel,
Thanks for visiting the blog.
That game is not played at Maracana stadium and I am not offering any tour to that game.
That game will not be soldout and tickets will only be available by thursday. You can not buy them now.
The stadium is not well placed and if you really want to go, it's better to catch a package.
Please contact me directly if you have any doubt.
Cheers, Sergio

Julie frazer-morris said...

Hi Sergio, I would like to take my husband to the game at the Maracana on 20th May at 7pm. I need 2 tickets, can you help. Me with this please?

Sergio said...

Hi Julie,
Thanks for visiting the blog and contactiung me.
Tickets for any game are usually put on sale a few days before the game. You can't buy or book for that game yet. It's too early. But don't worry it's not that bad to get tickets.
Please contact me directly and I will give you all information needed.
Best Regards,
Sergio

Hi Sergio,

First, I hope you are well and thank you for the service and opportunity you provide us. You may recall, I attended the Flamengo v. Junior Barranquilla game with you at Maracana last November - November 23, 2017. It was me, you, and a German couple that attended. It was such and awesome and memorable experience that I am still telling the story.

Anyhow, I am looking to be in Rio for a few days this coming November and I see there are already some games posted with dates. Venues however remain uncertain. My question is, when do you think the venues for November 2018 games will be confirmed?

Again, a sincere thank you!!!
Raul

Sergio said...

Hi Raul,
Thanks for contacting me again.
I think I recall you..... We went together but you stayed at another section and we met again after the game, right?
It's great.
The schedule for November may be released after the World Cup in Russia, by July....
I'm guessing... But I will publish it the sooner its confirmed...
Just contact me at any time. No worries.
Cheers,
Sergio

Hi Sergio,
My girlfriend and me also want to visit the match on the 29th. We will arrive at Rio in the evening of the 26th, so we can only buy tickets on the 27th. Do you think there will be still tickets or will the match already be sold out?
Thanks a lot!
Thilo

Hi Thilo,
Thanks for visiting the blog.
Tickets for the game on 29th aren't yet on sale and may cost around 40-50 Reais.
That game probably will not be soldout and tickets may be available at the stadium at the game day.
Please contact me directly if you need any further information, ok?

Tijn Amsterdam said...

Hi Sergio,
I am in Rio with my gf and we now see there is a flamengo game on may 10th in Maracana....my question: can I buy tickets online, or should I buy at the gate? I do not know Ponte Preta so not sure if this is a big game. Thanks for some help :-)

Sergio said...

Hi Tijn. Tanks for visiting by.
Tickets are usually available at the stadium just before the game. But many people do the same and big lines may be formed ... Tickets aren t yet on sale... That game is for Brazil Cup. And Ponte Preta is a team from Campinas at Sao Paulo State.
Please contact me directly if need more information.
Cheers. Sergio

Paul Penney said...

Hi Sergio,

I am looking to go to Flamengo x Ponte Preta. I believe the tickets are now on sale. Can I buy them online or somewhere in rio in advance of the match? As you mentioned above I’d like to avoid long lines.

Thanks
Paul

Sergio said...

Hi Paul.
Tanks for contacting.
Tickets for that game are now on sale at Flamengo club and at Maracana among some other Flamengo shops, mostly at the suburbs...
They cost 40 and 60 Reais and probably will be soldout before Thursday.
Please contact me directly if you need any further information.
Cheers,
Sergio
