Brazil vs Argentina Why Was The Superclasico Match Cancelled In Melbourne

Brazil vs Argentina: Over 60,000 tickets had been sold for Brazil’s match against Argentina at the Melbourne Cricket Ground (MCG) on June 11. As a result, the match has been canceled, much to the chagrin of Victoria’s Minister of Events and Sports, Martin Pakula.

Why was Brazil vs Argentina football match canceled?

The football match between Brazil vs Argentina was canceled due to Argentina’s unwillingness to travel to Australia. MCG’s official page relayed the news with a statement that read,

“Regrettably, the event promoters have been informed by Pitch, the Superclasico June 11 2022 match agent, that contrary to their prior agreement and commitment to do so, Argentina is no longer prepared to travel to Australia for the match against Brazil. With great disappointment the match has therefore been cancelled and full refunds will be issued.

All purchased tickets will receive a full refund.

Tickets will be automatically refunded in full (including refundable ticket purchase, if relevant) to the original payment method used for purchase and patrons do not need to take any action.”

The Australian local sports minister Martin Pakula is believed to have been infuriated on receiving the news. He told ABC, “They owe Australian football fans an explanation.”. Although the two teams do still have to play a mandatory CONMEBOL World Cup qualifier, they have already booked their places in the FIFA World Cup 2022. It remains to be seen if this friendly will indeed take place in Australia.

As a result, FIFA has ordered Brazil and Argentina to compete in their pending World Cup qualifying match, which was suspended shortly after kick-off in September. The match never took place because officials complained that Argentine players were violating COVID protocols.
According to FIFA, the two teams will meet this September, just months before the World Cup finals in Qatar begin in November. The two teams have not yet committed to playing in the qualifying match, however.
