SINGAPORE: South American giants Brazil will play two international friendlies at the National Stadium next month, its football federation announced on its official website on Tuesday (Sep 17).

As part of the Brazil Global Tour 2019, the five-time World Cup winners will face Senegal on Oct 10 before going head to head against Nigeria on Oct 13. Both matches are slated to kick off at 8pm.

This is the second time Brazil will play at the Singapore Sports Hub; they beat Japan 4-0 in the first A international held there in 2014. 

All four goals were netted by Neymar.

In 2008, the Brazilian Olympic team played a Singapore selection at the old National Stadium as part of their warm-up ahead of Beijing 2008. The visitors won 3-0.

"We are thrilled to host two matches of such international stature at our iconic National Stadium. Our stadium facilities are designed to maximise spectator comfort and enjoyment of the match," said Mr Bryn Jones, chairman of Singapore Sports Hub.

"This Brazil vs Senegal and Nigeria will be a treat for all football fans to catch some of the world’s most skillful players in action.”

Tickets are priced from S$29 onwards for a single game and at special bundle prices from S$49 for two games. They will go on sale on Sep 19 from 10am at the SportsHub website.

Fans can opt for the S$299 SuperFan Package, which includes a VIP lanyard and pass, access to the VIP lounge, Centreline platinum tickets with padded seat and drink holder and refreshments. 

Booking and transaction fees are not included in the prices.

Fans who have purchased tickets to watch the Singapore vs Uzbekistan World Cup Qualifier on Oct 15 at National Stadium will be entitled to a 30 per cent discount on either one of the matches.

Tickets can be purchased online at www.sportshubtix.sg, via phone bookings at +65 3158 7888, and at the following box office locations: Singapore Indoor Stadium Box Office, The Star Performing Arts Centre Box office, Scotts Square Concierge and all SingPost outlets.
