RIO DE JANEIRO, Dec. 27, 2010 /PRNewswire-Asia/ -- Grupo Bradesco Seguros is sponsoring the "Game of the Stars" on Sunday, December 26, in Rio de Janeiro's Joao Havelange (nicknamed "Engenhao") Stadium. The special match is an initiative of former Brazilian football idol Zico, internationally renowned for his play in Brazil and abroad, and especially in Japan. The game will bring together top players and stars from different generations of Brazilian football, such as Romario, Junior and Renato Gaucho, among many others. According to the president of Grupo Bradesco Seguros, Marco Antonio Rossi, the insurance company is especially proud of its support of the event over the past seven years. "By coming onto the pitch for this socially important match, these athletes are showing the flag of the country and demonstrating their solidarity, as well as serving as examples for all generations." All of the funds collected through the sponsorship, support and ticket sales will be earmarked for different civil society organizations that help the underprivileged, especially for projects in the field of education and the practice of sports in Brazil.

Bradesco Seguros, which is the only insurance company to have at least one insured person in every city in Brazil, relies on the strength and the presence of Banco Bradesco and a network of insurance brokers in 5,564 municipalities in Brazil, offering access to a large portion of the Brazilian population that today has neither life nor any other kind of insurance protection.
