Overview

Do you love football? Join me in one of the most memorable experiences that a football lover can have in Rio de Janeiro: a Flamengo match at Maracanã! You will have an authentic experience of going to a Flamengo match as if you were a local fan, living the culture of Rio de Janeiro football and entering the considered “biggest crowd in the world” as if you had lived it all your life!

I’m Matheus, a football fan who has a degree in History and developed his research on his greatest passion: football, more precisely, football fans. So, I believe I have several stories to tell! I’m a die hard Flamengo fan and I’ve been going to my club’s games since I was little!

The Maracanã Stadium is, without a doubt, one of the most iconic in the world! It has already hosted two World Cup finals among other major world football competitions! In addition, it’s home to Flamengo matches, one of the biggest teams in the country! Flamengo’s fans are a show apart, providing an atmosphere and a unique experience!

We will meet in the lobby of your hotel and we will go to the stadium by metro. This is much nicer because we will be in contact with other fans who will be going to the match and with other people who are in their daily lives. On the surroundings of the Maracanã, we will take a tour around the stadium and to the Bar do Chicos, the location of our pre-match with by several Flamengo fans. We will drink some beers (or other drink you want) and eat some barbecues! Here I’ll tell you the best stories about Flamengo and Rio de Janeiro football and you’ll find out about the clubs and competitions!

Inside the stadium? Some say you should pay for two tickets in the Flamengo match: one for the match itself and another for the show of the fans! Our fans are considered some of the best in the country and you will definitely want to be part of this passion! Flamengo over the past years is fighting for the 1st place and our philosophy as fans, and the club too, directs us to always seek victory! Flamengo is synonymous with strength, love and passion and no matter what the situation, we will always seek victory!

After being in a game full of emotions and being sure that you will have amazing memories for the rest of your life, it’s time to head back to the hotel! End of our tour!

Wonderful experience

A must-do experience if you are visiting Rio de Janeiro, even if you are not a football fan! Matheus is a great host and all the tour is very well organized! The atmosphere is great during the match! It was a great day that continued even after the match, our group had such fan together that we decided to continue to stay together until late drinking some more beers!

Flamengo Matchday Experience

It was a great experience !!!! Pre-match immersed in the heat of Flamengo's Torcida and the match at the stadium becomes a party full of rhythm and songs that never stop. I was lucky enough to meet a wonderful group with whom after sharing the game I had the pleasure of being able to share all night around clubs. Recommended for everyone, not just football fans.

Flamengo Game

Good morning, Matheius showed me a good time at the Flamengo Game. My first time going to a Soccer ⚽️ game and I had a great time. He showed me where the Flamengo tailgate at and we ate barbecue as well. Then we had a good time at the game. Thanks again Matheius. 💯🤝

Flamengo experience - clear recommendation !

All good things come in threes. Flamengo's home game was also a lot of fun. Matheus as a Flamengo supporter will undoubtedly give you a great time. Many Thanks.

Authentic 🇧🇷 Football Experience

When you’re in Rio, you don’t want to miss out an authentic Brazilian football experience and there’s no better way of doing it than going to the Maracana. Matheus was very genuine and informative from the beginning to the end. He was gracious to meet me at where I was sightseeing and gave me experiences around the stadium well before the game. This was great because I was on my own for this game and we also met with other locals and tourists. Flamengo has some of the best fans in the world so be sure you catch a game!

Nada nos para!

Watching Flamengo at the Maracanã was the highlight of our trip to Rio, and we're so happy that we decided to go with Matheus. He takes away the stress of securing tickets, getting to the match and back, navigating the stadium etc. You will get to hang out with the fans pre-match, and then join them in the stadium. Matheus will give you the option to stand with the singing section, which I recommend - they're all really welcoming, and will even let you try out their flags and drums. The atmosphere was unlike any match that I've been to before, and thankfully we got a 3-1 win! This trip is a must for any trip to Rio

Most fun I had in Brazil!

We had an incredible time with Matheus attending the Flamengo game at Maracana. The energy in the stadium was out of this world, and it was so fun to be a real part of the action in the fan club with Matheus. As far as guides go, he was exceptional. He did an excellent job of making us feel safe and welcome at all times. His English is very good and he is a fun person to be around. It is a way better experience than trying to go to the game by yourself and figure it all out on your own. I definitely recommend doing a Flamengo game and going with Matheus makes it so much better!

Epic day!!!

What an epic day! Met some lovely people, had a wonderful time. Matheus was really great and very accommodating. He even paid for things out of his own pocket, until we could pay him back later, because we forgot to bring cash! My boyfriend is a big football fan, so he obviously enjoyed it, but even for myself, someone who knows hardly anything about football, I can definitely say I had such a good time and it felt like one big party with (new) friends!! Highly recommend :)

Great experience--do not miss!!!

Wow, what a FUN way to experience Brazilian football. I would recommend this to anyone who wants to see a slice of life in Rio, even if you aren't a football fan. I went with my husband and teenaged daughter. My daughter and I don't care a bit about football but were going for the experience and it was a BLAST!!! We met our group near the stadium and had BBQ and beer before heading to the match. A side note, we were met and escorted from our hotel which was really nice. Matheus got us right in the middle of things and boy was it fun. We stood and cheered and sang along right in the middle of all of Matheus' friends. It was amazing. Matheus explained things very clearly and kept checking in with us to make sure we understood what was going on and if we were having a great time and did we need more beer. ;) Book this. You will not regret it. Best way to spend a few hours and get a real Rio local experience. I would 100% do this again if I am lucky enough to visit Rio in the future.

Definitely do it!

This was the best futbol/soccer game I have been to! The stadium is legendary. The team and fans are the most authentic. Our guides and friends were very cool, fun to hang out with, and helpful. They even sent us a picture of when we could be seen in the crowd. I felt very lucky to get to experience it. I’ve seen matches in Germany, and Argentina and Brazil was my favorite and so is the Jersey I bought when we were chanting around fireworks outside the stadium.

BEST experience ever

Went to the semi final of Copa Libertadores, Flamengo-Gremio (5-0) and this was the best football game experience in my life! The host, Matheus, is very friendly, he makes you feel comfortable, knows a lot of football and is the best host you can wish for. If you want to visit Flamengo, book this tour!
