This top-notch encounter will oppose two of the foremost title holders in football history: the Squadra Azzura, 4-time world champions as well as holding one European championship and one Olympic gold medal; and the Celeste, 2-time world champions, 15-time winners of the Copa America, and 2-time Olympic gold medallists.
It will be the second time that the Squadra Azzura plays in Nice, after the friendly game against Austria which took place on August 20th, 2008 (2-2) at the Stade du Ray.
Italy and Uruguay have met ten times in the past, and so far the advantage belongs to Uruguay with four wins against Italy’s two, and four draws. This upcoming friendly match will be the fifth game played on neutral ground, after one in the Netherlands and two in each Mexico and Brazil. To date, five games have been played in Italy, against only one in Uruguay at the Centenario Stadium in Montevideo for the Mundialito (the Copa d’Oro opposing the world champions in 1981).

Black Market Vigilance
Watch out for fraudsters if you purchase your tickets from unauthorised websites, for you risk the following:
• Paying far too much for the tickets.
• Never receiving any tickets, or receiving tickets for seat categories that are not those you ordered. Since those websites do not have a definite, official supply source for their tickets, they are not in a position to guarantee them for you.
In the event of a difficulty, you will have no recourse. You will not necessarily be dealing with a professional who stands behind his commitments and is prepared to provide compensation, even though you may already have paid for transport or accommodation.
Beware of appearances!
Ticket sales websites that are listed first on search engines when you are looking for tickets have not necessarily been vetted by the show producers. Receiving a confirmation email does not guarantee that the purchased tickets are valid.
When using any other ticket sales outlet, check with the show producers whether they have indeed vetted the outlet by looking up the producers’ official website or by phoning them. The producers’ license number and/or name appears on all tickets and posters relating to the show.
