FOI release: support offered to Exeter City FC in Brazil

Request for information and guidance on the role of the British Consulate in Rio de Janeiro in relation to Exeter City’s visit in July 2014.



FOI 0707-14 requests details of the nature of support given by the British Consulate in Rio de Janeiro to Exeter City FC during their recent visit to Brazil to mark the centennial celebration match between Fluminese Football Club and Exeter City FC. The British Consulate used the event to promote wider UK interests and met costs related to that, but not to the cost of the football match itself.
