On Tuesday, Brazil face El Salvador on the final stop of this month’s Brasil Global Tour.

And the five-time world champions will feel they could hardly have been granted a grander stage than FedEx Field, one of the biggest stadiums in the National Football League (NFL).

Home to Washington’s American Football franchise, FedEx Field is affectionately nicknamed Big Jack after the team’s late owner, Jack Kent Cooke, who sought a replacement for their previous home, the Robert F. Kennedy Memorial Stadium.

It currently seats over 80,000 fans and has hosted a number of soccer matches, welcoming the USA, Argentina and El Salvador, Brazil’s opponents on Tuesday.

The iconic venue also played host to a number of matches at the Women’s World Cup in 1999.

A famous concert venue, the stadium has welcomed some of the modern greats of the music world, including the Rolling Stones, Metallica, U2, Bruce Springsteen, Coldplay and Beyonce.

Brazil meet El Salvador at 20:00 local time on Tuesday.
