Argentina vs Brazil


Melbournians love our sport, particularly when it features the best of the very best. This June two of the finest football nations (or soccer if you will) are coming to our hometown to play a friendly match at one of the greatest sporting stadiums in the world, the MCG.

The match is predicted to sell out the 100, 000 seat capacity at the MCG so you can guarantee the atmosphere will be buzzing. After an event like that, don’t feel like you need to battle the crowds to get home on a packed train - why not keep the excitement going and stay in a hotel conviniently located in Melbourne's CBD?

The chance to see FC Barcelona teammates, Lionel Messi and Neymar battle it out with their star-studded teams right here in Melbourne is an experience few will get to witness (only about 100,000).

And you can guarantee their form will shine. When asked about the superstar players last year, Brazilian manager Tite had this to say:

"Lionel Messi does not stop, Neymar does not stop. You can decrease their actions. You can try to decrease the number of entries, but what am I going to do, is that the question? I'm not telling."


See you at the match!
