Pele To Be Buried On Tuesday, January 3rd As Brazil Declares Three Days Of Mourning

The remains of football legend Pele’s remains will be laid to rest on Tuesday, January 3rd, 2023 in his hometown, Santos.

The 82-year-old, widely regarded as the greatest player of all time and a three-time World Cup winner, died on Thursday (Dec. 29) at the Albert Einstein hospital (Sao Paulo) after a long battle with cancer.

Already, Brazil has entered three days of mourning following the death of football legend.

His funeral will hold at the Vila Belmiro Stadium, outside Sao Paulo (the stadium where Pelé played some of the best matches of his career) on Monday and Tuesday.

The coffin carrying the three-time World Cup champion will leave Albert Einstein hospital in Sao Paulo early Monday morning and will be placed in the center circle of the field.

Visitation will start Monday at 10 a.m. and finish the next day at the same time.

Pelé’s casket will be carried through the streets of Santos and will pass in front of the home of his 100-year-old mother, Celeste. Recent reports in Brazilian media say Pelé’s mother cannot leave her bed and is not lucid.

The burial will take place at the Memorial Necrópole Ecumênica, a vertical cemetery in Santos. Only family will attend.
