The Brazilian trials for ADCC 2013 already has a date and host city scheduled. It will be between April 19 and 21 in Rio de Janeiro, but the exact location is not 100 percent confirmed yet, GracieMag.com confirmed with Wagner Gomes, the secretary of ADCC in Brazil.
“It’s 90 percent certain to be in Maracanazinho, but the problem is that 10 percent,” he said. “I am confident, but the meeting will be tomorrow when we set everything.”
