The Marítimo Stadium will host on March 28 the private game between the main national teams of Portugal and Sweden in preparation for the 2018 World Cup.
The announcement was announced today by the Portuguese Football Federation (FPF).
The president of that organization, Fernando Gomes, explained that the return to Madeira is a source of great joy for the football family.
Speaking to the FPF website, the Federative leader recalled that “our national team has not played in Madeira for almost 16 years and this was a gift that we have long sought to give the people of Madeira.”
“We know well the unconditional affection they devote to us and also the affection they naturally devote to our captain Cristiano Ronaldo, who for the first time will be able to represent the National Team with his countrymen. This return will certainly be a moment of great happiness for the people of Madeira who are so vibrant with our team, “said Fernando Gomes
