All Star Futbol - reliable tour guide to Maracana

CHRISTMAS FOOTBALL IN THE MARACANA

For those with family, friends staying over the holiday period and for keen sports/ football fans the perfect chance to watch live football in one of the world's most famous stadia. With league football only resuming in the second half of January this is the best option to check out live football over the holiday period.

A special match at the Maracana this Christmas including two legends from Brazil's awesome 1980s teams, some of the greats from Brazil's recent past including several World Cup winners, current players from club and international level and a sprinkling of foreign stars.

Among those confirmed

Zico, Junior, Bebeto, Rai, Leonardo, Zinho, Aldair, Serginho, Gamarra, Seedorf, Nakata, Emerson, Vagner Love.

Plus local favourites like Leo Moura, Ibson, Gabriel and Alex Dias.

For Botafoguenses a chance to shout "offside" at controversial lineswoman-turned centrefold-turned lineswoman Ana Paula de Oliveira.

It is the old "pelada do Zico"... (something like Zico's informal match). They used to play at Zico football center (Recreio dos Bandeirantes) but it smaller year after year with the cerscent crowd. Maradona already played there. The tickets when in Recreio used to be food for charity.

Its a genuine Flamengo party.

Be Welcome

Bebeto will not play anymore, and OBINA, the great Flamengo "craque" will be the substitute.

The player is in Salvador, enjoying his vacations, but he will fly to Rio to play with his idol, what is an old dream of him.

The match will be at 8:30 p.m

Gates opened after 6 p.m

tickets R$ 10,00

available at these points:

Maracanã

Centro de Futebol Zico (Recreio dos Bandeirantes)

Clube de Regatas do Flamengo (Gávea)

Fluminense Footbal Clube (Laranjeiras)
