Football matches 09/02 - 12/02

Hi all

Its just over a week until we fly to Brazil now and I'm really excited. Thanks for all your wonderful advice over the past few months. I hope you can help me out one last time.

It would make my husbands holiday to catch a football match whilst we are in Rio (09/02/07 - 12/02/07). Does anyone have any good tips on how I can find out about fixtures and go about actually booking tickets?

Many thanks

Houston, Texas

See my post with further details at the following link:


It looks like you have the following options for that time period.

Sat 10: Fluminense v America - Maracana - 20.30 (CC)

Sun 11: Vasco v Volta Redonda - Sao Januario - 16.00 (CC)

Sun 11: Botafogo v Flamengo - Maracana - 18.10 (CC)

Botafogo v Flamengo would be a good one to see.

Hi JohnnyD & Scatta

Thanks for your help. I have got in touch with therealrio and I'm well on my way to my first brazillian football match! The website looks really good and I'm hoping to speak to them about a few other things to do whilst we are in Rio.

Thanks again.
