Maracanã perfect match for Soccerex Global Convention

The final edition of the Soccerex Global Convention in Brazil will now be held at Rio de Janeiro’s iconic Maracanã Stadium, venue of the 2014 FIFA World Cup Final. As a result of the move, the Convention will now take place from 30 November to 5 December 2013.

Following three successful years on the Forte de Copacabana, the decision to move venue was taken in conjunction with event hosts, the Rio de Janeiro State Government, to provide delegates with a new and unforgettable final Soccerex experience in the global capital of sport. The new event dates mean the Global Convention will take place immediately prior to the Final Draw for the 2014 FIFA World Cup Brazil, which is happening in Costa do Sauipe, Bahia on 6 December.

The Soccerex Football Festival, an extravaganza of football and entertainment which brings together some of the greatest players of modern times, will take place in the adjacent purpose-built Maracanãzinho. The 12,000 seat arena will make it possible for more spectators than ever before to enjoy the two day festival which is open to the public free of charge.
