With Brazil set to meet Japan in Lille, Chevrolet Brasil Global Tour takes a closer look at the setting of Friday's clash
The Chevrolet Brasil Global Tour resumes this week in a spectacular setting as Tite leads the Selecao against Japan at Stade Pierre-Mauroy.
The 50,000-capacity stadium hosts more than 22 matches per season for local club, Lille. It weighs 7,400 tonnes, includes 10,000 square metres of reception areas and carries no less than 70,000 animated LEDs on its wall space.
It hosted six matches at Euro 2016, including France's group-stage match versus Switzerland and the quarter-final between Wales and Belgium.
Built in 2012, the multi-purpose arena has a mobile roof and has hosted concerts by the likes of Rihanna, Bruno Mars, Celine Dion and Justin Bieber.
It takes just 24 hours to convert from a football stadium to a stunning music hall.
The stadium is easily accessible via car and all forms of public transport, with the Lille-Lesquin airport shuttle bus providing connections every day for the Lille Europe and Lille Flandres railway stations.
Free shuttle busses are available from Les Près Metro station to the Stadium.
Friday's test against Japan will be the first time Brazil have played an official match in Lille, and the first time the Selecao have played in the country since their 2015 victory over their hosts in the Brasil Global Tour event at Stade de France.
The five-time world champions meet the Samurai Blue on Friday, November 10 at 13:00 local time.
