Sport Business News

The Emirates Stadium in London will play host to another glamour international friendly match on 27 March 2011 when the Brazil World Tour returns to London, with the five–times World Cup winners taking on Scotland.

A sell–out crowd is anticipated for the clash which is being organised and marketed by the UK arm of sports marketing company Kentaro. Kick–off has been set for 2pm UK time. " We are delighted to once again bring together these two teams who have shared a very special history, particularly around some famous World Cup matches, " Kentaro COO Jonathan Hill said. " Both sets of fans are world famous for creating a unique atmosphere and we are expecting a huge amount of interest, not only in London but also globally on the international broadcast and sponsorship markets. " The clash is another highlight of the Brazil World Tour, which has seen the Seleçao play France in Paris and Argentina in Doha in most recent matches. It will be the first meeting between Brazil and Scotland since the curtain raiser to the 1998 FIFA World Cup, which the defending champions won 2–1.
