Brazil Has Miami In November Plans

After a decade-long absence, Brazil returns to the Magic City. The Brazilian national team is scheduled to face Honduras at Sun Life Stadium on November 16th as part of their World Tour.

The Brazilian Football Federation (CBF) as well as promoters Kics International made the announcement on Saturday as there was talk of a stop in South Florida being in the works either in November or sometime in 2014 last September when they were up in Foxboro when they played Portugal.

There was a major caveat in place as Brazil is already locked in for the date and time, the question mark is Honduras. If Los Catrachos were unable to lock up their spot for the upcoming World Cup, they would be replaced by another team. This is according to the statement released by the promoters of this match.
“We are excited to bring another marquee international soccer match to Sun Life Stadium,” said Relevent Sports CEO Charlie Stillitano. “As the finals of the Guinness International Champions Cup showed, Miami is one of the centers of soccer in this country and we have no doubt that this will be on full display November 16.”

Brazil have been one of the biggest draws in South Florida having been here for the 1996 Olympic football tournament (several matches were played at the Orange Bowl). In 1997, Brazil also stopped in Miami as part of the their world tour prior to the 1998 and they were joined by Carlos Santana in a post-match concert. In that match, they defeated Mexico 4-0.

Brazil also took part in the 2003 Gold Cup where they stopped in Miami and played Colombia. They defeated the Cafeteros 2-0 with a brace by Kaká.

This would be the first time they have played in this venue since that event took place. This would also be the first time that they would play at Sun Life Stadium.

Brazil also have another match that they plan to play in North America, but there currently is no time and place for it just yet. An announcement will be made next week in regards to that.
