My name is Guilherme Silva. I work as Tour Leader in South America, Tour Guide in Rio de Janeiro and operating Football Tours in the last 5 years. I’m a football fanatic and supporter of the biggest football club in the world: Flamengo.
We will enjoy matchday experience at Maracanã Stadium, the most famous in Brazil and maybe in the world. It was made in 1950 for the first World Cup in Brazil and until nowadays, it holds a record of the biggest public in football history, with more than 200 thousand people inside it!
Vasco Da Gama, Botafogo, Fluminense and Flamengo are the four football teams in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. But Flamengo alone has more than 40 million fans across the country and because of that is the most famous!
Our meeting point will be in front of the Copacabana Palace Hotel, in the traditional Copacabana neighbourhood. Before we leave, I will explain everything that happens before the game and how important this match is for the local team. On the way to the most famous stadium in Brazil, we will introduce ourselves to the local fans and their traditions.
Before the game starts, we will go to a local bar nearby Maracanã, where fans use to meet and make their warm-up to the game. You can have some drinks and local food as you wish. In Rio de Janeiro, is allowed to drink beers outside and inside the Stadiums. During our warm-up, I will teach you easy songs that we can sing during the game. We will have the opportunity to go to official stores of the Club inside the stadium.
The next step will be very simple, we going to the Stadium, take our sits and enjoy the game! I can guarantee that this experience will be unforgettable and I will be proud to recruit one more Flamengo fan around the world!
