The event organisers said the festival, slated on April 27-28, aims at celebrating the 35th anniversary of Vietnam-Brazil diplomatic ties, and boosting connections in sports, tourism, and business between the city and Brazil.

The legends team, which includes stars who won the World Cup in 1994 and 2002, will be playing a friendly match with Vietnamese ex-national players on April 27.

Vietnamese football fans in the city will have an opportunity to meet Brazilian and Vietnamese football legends from 4pm to 7pm at a local 20,000-seat stadium.

A centre called the Brazil Football Academy is planned to debut at the city’s V-Village in Hoa Vang district as part of the festival.
