The Selecao will face El Tri at Allianz Parque on June 7 in what will be their first match on home soil since last year's World Cup
Chevrolet Brasil Global Tour has confirmed the venue of Brazil’s upcoming friendly with Mexico.
The Selecao will meet the North Americans in their penultimate Copa America warm-up match at Allianz Parque in Sao Paulo.
Home of Palmeiras, the stadium was opened in 2014 and holds over 43,000 spectators.
“We are thrilled to host the national team’s first match in Brazil on the road to the 2018 World Cup,” said Venancio Castro, executive director of AEG Facilities Brasil.
“Allianz Parque is the perfect venue and will provide a spectacular setting for these two storied teams. We have enjoyed working with both Pitch International and the CBF to bring this match to Allianz Parque and are certain that with Brazil’s recent strong performances against France and Chile that demand will be extremely high.”
The clash will be Brazil’s first in front of a home crowd since last year’s World Cup.
“Having organized over 25 Brazil matches in the last two years we have extensive experience of working with different stadiums and promoters all over the world.” said Jonathan Rogers, managing director of Pitch International
“However, we are extremely excited to begin our working relationship with AEG in their fantastic Allianz Parque in Sao Paulo. Each and every game played by the Selecao is a unique footballing experience, delivering sold out stadiums globally, but playing a vital preparation game against Brazil’s great rivals, Mexico, in Sao Paulo is sure to be a very memorable match.”
