Tickets to next month’s high-profile friendly between Brazil and South Korea in Abu Dhabi have gone on sale.
The fixture, announced earlier this month, will take place on November 19 at the Mohamed bin Zayed Stadium, with limited early-bird tickets starting at Dh120. It marks Brazil’s first international fixture in the UAE since October 2010, when the five-time world champions defeated Iran 3-0 at Zayed Sports City.
“We are looking forward to welcoming the full-strength Brazil and Korean Republic first-team squads to Abu Dhabi,” said Aref Al Awani, general secretary of Abu Dhabi Sports Council. “The Brazil national team has a huge fan base here, which makes Abu Dhabi the perfect host for this match. We are anticipating the match to be very popular, so we encourage everyone to get involved and buy their tickets as soon as possible.”
Brazil manager Tite announced his 23-man squad this weekend for the double-header against Argentina, in Riyadh on November 15, and South Korea – part of the Brazil Global Tour. Although star forward Neymar misses the friendlies through injury, the group includes the likes of Roberto Firmino, Gabriel Jesus, Casemiro and Philippe Coutinho.
South Korea, meanwhile, are expected to be headlined by Tottenham Hotspur forward Son Heung-min.
Tickets for Brazil-South Korea range from Dh120 (Category 4) to Dh445 (Category 1), and can be found at www.ticketmaster.ae. Details on hospitality and travel packages will be released soon.
