Meet and Greet – Pia Sundhage
We are very pleased and honored to have Pia Sundhage as our guest speaker on August 30!
Pia was appointed as the new head coach of Brazil after this summer’s World Cup in France.
Her most decorated role came while in charge of the USA, with whom she won two Olympic gold medals, in 2008 and 2012, as well as reaching the final of the 2011 World Cup.
She stepped down from that role in 2012, wishing to return to her homeland, and would sign a four-year contract to become Sweden’s head coach.
At the 2016 Olympics, Sundhage recorded a shock defeat over the USA in the quarter-finals of the competition, as Sweden collected the silver medal.
Pia will visit the Swedish Chamber the day after her first game with the team against Argentina at the Pacaembu stadium in São Paulo.
This is a unique opportunity for you to meet with one of the most successful football coaches in the world, in an informal get-together where Pia will tell us about her career so far and her expectations for the Brazilian team and share her first impressions of living in Rio de Janeiro.
