The Brazilian national 7-a-side football team is scheduled to host a free demonstration of their sport tomorrow at Copacabana Beach at 2:30 PM local time.  Diego Silva, Marcos Yuri and Gilvano da Silva are players who have been confirmed as taking part.



The team has been very active this year, with a couple of national team training camps already under their belt.  In December of last year, they held a joint training camp with Argentina where they played a pair of friendlies.


The Brazilian team is competing at the  2015 IFCPF World Championships  in Burton-upon-Trent,  England in June.  They have been drawn in Group C with the United States, Scotland and Venezuela.  After that, they will be competing at the Para Panamerican Games in Toronto in August.
