U.S.-Brazil soccer exhibition set for Washington
Men’s national teams will play May 30 at FedEx Field
Question of the Day
The teams will face off in an exhibition at the home of the Washington Redskins on May 30 at 8 p.m., the Redskins announced Thursday. The game will be televised by ESPN2 and Univision. Tickets, which range from $40 to $135, will go on sale Feb. 17 at 10 a.m. through Ticketmaster outlets.
The game should feature the “A” teams from both sides, including the likes of Landon Donovan, Clint Dempsey and Tim Howard for the U.S. and Brazilian stars Neymar, Dani Alves and Robinho.
Though the U.S. has made the Washington area a regular venue for games through the years, this will be the national team’s first appearance at FedEx Field. The stadium, which opened in 1997, has hosted high-profile soccer matches in recent years, though.
A Champions League final rematch between Manchester United and Barcelona last summer drew 81,807 fans to Landover, Md., and 72,368 fans watched a 2009 game between Real Madrid and D.C. United.
