England v Brazil at the Maracanã in Rio

England (and Brazil) fans arriving for the match in Rio on Sunday need to be aware that there is just one venue in Rio for ticket collections on the day of the match – Fluminense football club. [map here]

If you are in Rio earlier then the ticket agent has a number of venues where you can collect tickets. All the details are here on www.futebolcard.com

If you need to get tickets on the day of the game then there are some conditions:

  1. You need to have ID that proves you do not live in Rio.
  2. You need the card you used to buy the tickets.
  3. You need to be at Fluminense FC between 10.00 to 14.00.

There is no ticket sale or collection at the Maracanã stadium on the day of the game – this is the venue for the game. And be aware that Fluminense is not close to the Maracanã so you need to get organised if collecting on the day of the game.

I’m going to the game along with some other Brits. We will probably meet in the Botafogo area of Rio at lunchtime.  Tweet me or send a message via Facebook if you want to join us!

Original email message from Futebol card:

A retirada exclusiva dos ingressos para os torcedores que não residem no estado do Rio de Janeiro, poderá ser realizada no dia da partida SOMENTE na sede do Fluminense (Rua Álvaro Chaves, nº 41 – Laranjeiras), das 10 às 14h.

ATENÇÃO: NÃO HAVERÁ RETIRADA NO ESTÁDIO DO MARACANÃ NO DIA DA PARTIDA.

Happy New Year for 2013 Friends!

My personal blog here is updated quite sporadically and covers a multitude of topics. It’s not really a place for one single topic, but that’s also why it is of interest to me – it’s just a place to sound off.

2012 has been a fantastic year for me and 2013 looks even better as I move to a new home with my wife and continue to enjoy my life in Brazil.

I hope your own new year is the best it can be and you manage to prosper in what are challenging times. Happy New Year for 2013!
