Florida Cup and Universal Orlando Resort officials announced today the return of the Florida Cup Fan Fest, featuring a performance by three-time Latin Grammy winner and Brazilian superstar, Ivete Sangalo. The concert will take place at the Music Plaza Stage in Universal Studios Florida on Jan. 11, 2019.
Universal Orlando Resort, home to Universal Studios Florida, Islands of Adventure and the water theme park Universal’s Volcano Bay, is partnering once again with the Florida Cup and will serve as the venue for several large fan experiences, including the Florida Cup Fan Fest. Access to the Florida Cup Fan Fest and Sangalo’s performance is included with regular theme park admission.
2019 Florida Cup Fan Fest Headliner Ivete Sangalo is one of the most beloved pop-stars in Brazil. A three-time Latin Grammy winner, the globally recognized artist is considered one of the most successful icons in Brazil. She has sold over 17 million albums in her career and was the only Brazilian performer to headline and sell out the Madison Square Garden in New York.
“We are thrilled to welcome an international icon such as Ivete to our event,” said Florida Cup CEO Ricardo Villar. “Fans can start to make their plan to visit and enjoy world class soccer featuring Ajax and Sao Paulo as two of the teams already confirmed, as well as first-class entertainment with Ivete Sangalo at the Fan Fest, plus all the fun and excitement Universal Orlando Resort has to offer.”
“Our partnership with the Florida Cup this past year was a great success, and we’ll continue building on that foundation in 2019,” said Marcos Barros, Universal Orlando’s vice president of sales and marketing for Latin America. “Thrilling entertainment and next-level vacation experiences is at the core of what we do, and together with the Florida Cup we are looking forward to giving our international visitors an experience like no other.”
