Arsenal’s Emirates Stadium to host Brazil v Chile international friendly in March.
Brazil will take on Chile in an International friendly match at the Emirates Stadium on Sunday, March 29, with a 3pm kick-off.
The match will be the first time the teams have met since Brazil beat Chile 3-2 on penalties in the World Cup last summer, after a 1-1 draw after extra time.
The match will assist both teams in preparing for this summer’s Copa America tournament, taking place in Chile.
It will be the seventh time the Brazil national team has played at the Emirates Stadium.
Extra spice will also be added with Alexis Sanchez playing at his home ground.
Arsenal chief executive Ivan Gazidis said: “Everyone at Arsenal Football Club is proud to once again be hosting a high-profile international match at Emirates Stadium.
“The national teams of Brazil and Chile have many fantastic players and the match will give football fans the opportunity to watch an international friendly of the highest calibre.”
