Honduras' Presidency has issued an executive decree declaring Friday, November 10, 2017, beginning at 14:00 local time, as a one-off public sector holiday, on the occasion of the football game opposing Honduras and Australia in view of qualification for the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia.

A few years ago (24-Jun-2014), after some tergiversation (19-Jun-2014), the government of Honduras had similarly declared Wednesday, June 25, 2014, as an afternoon public sector public holiday, beginning at 12:30 pm local time, to allow civil servants to watch the World Cup game between Honduras and Switzerland, barely a week after it had also declared Friday, June 20, 2014, as an afternoon public sector public holiday, beginning at 15:00 (3pm) local time, to allow civil servants to watch the World Cup game between Honduras and Ecuador (15-Jun-2014), despite earlier statements by Honduras' then new President, Juan Orlando Hernαndez, that there would be no one-off non-working public holidays in Honduras (15-Jun-2014).

The year before that (15-Oct-2013), following Honduras' qualification for the current World Cup, then Honduras' President, Porfirio Lobo, had declared tomorrow, Wednesday, October 16, 2013, as a one-off non-working public holiday, and earlier that same year (24-Sep-2013), following the requests of Honduras' business and football associations, Honduras' President, Porfirio Lobo, moved the date of the October 3, Dνa del Soldado, annual non-working public holiday to Friday, October 11, 2013, to coincide with the upcoming football game between Honduras and Costa Rica.
