The Belize Men’s Football Team (BMNT) is getting ready to play a football friendly against Cuba at the FFB Stadium in Belmopan on Sunday at 4:00 pm.
The match is an official football friendly approved by FIFA and serves as a preparation for both national teams that are getting ready for the Concacaf Nations League which comes up from May 30 to June 14.
The only previous time Belize played Cuba, the Caribbean side routed the BMNT 4-0 on July 16, 2013, at the Concacaf Gold Cup at Hartford, Connecticut, in the United States.
Coincidentally, Belize’s and Cuba’s last two friendlies were against Nicaragua.
Belize drew 1-1 with Nicaragua on February 2, after falling 4-0 in the first encounter on January 30. Both games were played in Managua.
For their part, Cuba beat Nicaragua 3-0 on November 11, 2021, but were beaten 2-0 three days later on November 14.
The FFB said tickets were selling for $10 from Monday to Wednesday and $15 from Thursday to Saturday at the FFB Headquarters in Belmopan and at its offices at the Norman Broaster Stadium in San Ignacio, the Marion Jones Sports Complex in Belize City and at the People’s Stadium in Orange Walk.
On Sunday, tickets will cost $20 at the gate at the FFB Stadium.
Children will be allowed at the game and those who are under 12 will enter free.
The FFB said that for those who can’t make it, the game will be live streamed on their Facebook page, but if you’re going to the game, you might want to check the list of items you cannot take to the game. Included are weapons and anything that can be used as a weapon.
