Overview

Hello, my name is Pedro! I’m a passionate Flamengo fan, and I want to provide you with the ultimate Maracanã experience to witness “The Greatest in the World” – the world’s greatest fanbase! I’ve been going to Maracanã since 2005, and I want to share all the thrilling stories with you and create unforgettable memories together.

Our journey starts near the metro station. The game’s electrifying atmosphere begins right there. We’ll meet fellow local fans and then head to the classic Bakana Bar e Cozinha for some beers, where the excitement for the match builds up.

We’ll culminate our experience at Brazil’s most iconic stadium! After hosting two World Cup finals, Maracanã has become a sacred ground for all “flamenguistas”. Words cannot capture what you’ll experience with our passionate fans – the most devoted fanbase in the world!

The 2024 season promises great results for Flamengo. After winning the regional championship, we’re on the hunt for the Treble – National League, National Cup, and Libertadores! Under the leadership of coach Tite, our team is playing exceptionally well, and you’ll witness a spectacular show in the stands. Are you ready to join us?

After the game, we’ll have the opportunity to enjoy a post-game celebration, drinking beer and eating street barbecue. Our journey will end there, where you can easily order an Uber or taxi back.

If you’re in a large group, contact me for special arrangements!

Join me for a 5-hour adventure where you’ll feel like a true Flamengo supporter. I guarantee you the best and most complete tour, backed by my extensive historical knowledge and passion for the game. Book now for an experience of a lifetime!

FAQs

Is the match date confirmed?

The fixtures available for booking are those that have been announced, however, it is important to note that changes may occur, with the possibility of an advance or delay of one or two days. We recommend you to consider this when making your wider travel plans.

How will the host get in touch after booking?

After completing your booking, you will receive an official confirmation from Homefans. In the days leading up to the experience, the local host will be in charge of welcoming you and, later, providing detailed information about the experience. Hosts make contact a few weeks before the event via email and/or WhatsApp to ensure you are fully informed and prepared.

How many people will be on the tour?

The maximum number of people the host will allow is stated above. However this number may not always be met and it may even be possible that your party is on the tour on your own. Higher numbers make for a more sociable experience, lower numbers make for more personalised attention from your host. Look at it as a win/win!

Is it necessary to bring the passport to the game?

For the game itself, it is not necessary to bring your passport. You may take it for identification purposes only. We recommend that you carry a copy or photo on your phone for convenience.

Can I drink during the game?

Yes, it is allowed to consume alcoholic beverages before and during games in Brazil, with the exception of games in São Paulo, in which the consumption of alcoholic beverages is not permitted inside the stadium.

Is pick up and drop off included in the experience?

The transportation service is detailed in the “What you get” section. However, in group experiences, it is common for the local host to schedule a convenient meeting point, providing the opportunity for everyone to head towards the event together.

Where can I buy shirts, hats and other merch items to wear during the game?

If available, your local host can provide these additional items for your convenience. When booking, note whether the host offers these items as extra options. If so, simply select the desired items and the desired quantity. The local host will arrange these items in advance and deliver them personally when you meet for the experience.

What is the seating location?

Seating locations are specified in the “What you get” section.

Will everyone sit together during the game?

Yes, everyone will be together in the same sector, with the freedom to choose their own chairs. In Brazil, there are no assigned seats, allowing total flexibility in choosing seats.

Can I change my seat sector?

The possibility of upgrading will depend on the experience in question. If this option is available, you can upgrade by selecting extra items during the booking process. However, we recommend that you contact the local host in advance via the messaging tab to confirm availability and ensure a personalized experience.

What is facial recognition for stadium access?

For some clubs and stadiums in Brazil, it is necessary to register for facial recognition. Clubs that require this procedure are clearly indicated in the description of each experience. When booking your seats, the local host will contact you promptly to request the necessary information and guide you through the facial registration process. It is important to highlight that, for these clubs and stadiums, the registration of facial biometrics is mandatory, being the only way to access the stadium, as the ticket will be linked to this identification. Facial recognition registration is a policy of clubs and stadiums, and has no relationship with Homefans and/or local hosts. Furthermore, to participate in the experience, you must agree to go through this process and register your face.

Can people with reduced mobility participate in the experiences?

Although the experiences involve walking, yes, it is possible to participate. Please inform your local host of this consideration, and they will arrange the best and most comfortable way for you to participate.

Can I use credit cards or just cash?

It is possible to use both credit cards and cash outside and inside the stadium. However, it is important to note that it is not possible to use international debit cards considering you are a foreigner.

Can children / young adults join the tour?

If we can accept children there will be an option in the booking flow. However, for many trips our local hosts take the decision, based on the content of the tour, to open this up to adults only. If you are looking to travel with under 18’s, please feel free to contact us and we can discuss your options.

Can I trust booking on Homefans?

You can absolutely trust booking on Homefans! The activities on Homefans are offered by vetted locals and Homefans. All bookings made on Homefans are backed by our Buyer Guarantee.

Best football match experience ever

I would like to say Thank you first of all to our amazing guide Pedro! Amazing support and guidance throughout the whole Tour! He was able to create a special bond among the whole participants so that we could all enjoy the experience as a Team! Very friendly and professional at the same time. Safe environment and safe guidance. The only regret is that we left Brazil after few days so we couldn't book another tour for another match always with Pedro. Definitely recommended to every football fans that may be in Rio. Obrigado Pedro. You're the best.

Flamengo v Vasco (02/06)

This was my first time watching Flameng, and my first time at the Maracanã, so I had no clue on what to expect. But it was one of the best experiences at a football match I had (6-1 to Flamengo!). Pedro took us through the stadium and told us exactly what to do. We had an amazing section where we could see the whole pitch and were right next to the ultras too. If you want a truly authentic Flamengo experience, or are going to the Maracanã for your first time, I highly recommend you book with Pedro. He is a super host! Thank you again Pedro!

Fla x Pal - HF 10/04

Pedro and his friends hosted us for a football game at Maracanã, and it was an unforgettable experience! From the moment we arrived, they made us feel like part of their group. Pedro's and his friends' passion for football was contagious, their knowledge of the game added an extra layer of excitement to the match. The atmosphere at Maracanã was electric, and being able to share that with Pedro and his friends made it even more special. Overall, it was a fantastic night, and I would highly recommend anyone visiting Rio to connect with Pedro for an authentic football experience!

Fla-Flu 25/2-2025 - Legendary game!

This was my second time out with Pedro at Maracanã, and yet another amazing experience. First, well-organized and safely executed by Pedro despite all the chaos on this lovely, sunny day with 60.000 people at the stadium. Second, the game itself was amazing - the crowds, the cold beers, and the result! See you again soon, Pedro!

Flamengo vs Botafogo 2/7/24

I usually don't book tickets with guides especially to football/futbol/futebol matches, but this experience was incredible! I had such a great time with our whole group! Pedro our guide was very knowledgeable about the team and I had a great time conversing with him on our way to the game. Pedro took us to a bar where we had a couple of beers with some of the other Flamengo fans which was a really great time where I got to meet different people going to the game also. Afterwards, we headed to the stadium and made our way to our seats, which were very good! After a couple of visits to the bar, we were all definitely having a great time! Pedro and his friends really made everyone feel part of the group! I highly recommend booking this experience and I guarantee you will not be let down! Thank you Pedro and friends!

Flamengo vs. Red Bull Bragantino

By doing this matchday experience, I could tick off another item of my bucket list - watching a game in the legendary Maracanã. Definitely a must do if your visiting Brazil and your a sports fan. Even people who are not football fans won‘t regret it, as it‘s an overall unforgetable experience and uncomparable atmosphere in the stadium. The Flamengo fans are nuts before, during and after the game! Our guide Pedro did a perfect job. You can tell that the well-being of his group is important to him and that he‘s a true Flamengo fan! Thank you Pedro for the impeccable organization.

Amazing experience

I had an unbelievable experience with Pedro (2nd leg, semi-final, Brazil Cup 2023). I was given all of the necessary information along with a friendly introduction on WhatsApp well in advance of the day. Pedro explained everything, along with do’s and don’ts and was happy to answer any questions. He made sure people were aware of pickpockets on the way to the stadium, and made sure everyone was looked after. Pedro was really knowledgable and organised everything perfectly, from meeting everyone in our group to getting the beers in before and during the game. As a football fan, I had a great time and couldn’t recommend Pedro more. I’ll be rooting for Flamengo in the final!

Mr

We went to Flamengo v Sao Paolo in the Maracanna with our guide Pedro! It was a great way to meet like minded people and have a few beers before the game! Pedro was great fun and took all the hassle out of coming and going to the stadium! Would highly recommend booking with Pedro if you want to catch a game in Brazil!

Fla-Flu Match

I was so lucky to have the pleasure of being hosted by Pedro. He is so friendly and made the match experience unforgettable!!! Pedro made it easy to get to the stadium which would of felt impossible to do without him. I even got to meet some of his friends who are also fellow Flamengo fans, and we have an all around amazing time. If im ever back in Rio i will 100% be booking another homefans match with Pedro!!!

Dream came thru!

I now call myself a Flamenguista. This was made possible by Pedro and his well-organized trip to Maracanã to watch Flamengo vs. Curitiba Sunday 16th. Also the communication leading up to the match was on point and comforting. We met with a few other Flamenguista's prior to the game for few beers and some food, and we got the perfect pre-game experience. Pedro shared exciting information about Flamengo, Maracanã and football in Brazil. During the game, which Flamengo won 3-0, the fans were chanting and singing throughout, and encouraging the team to go for the win. Loved every second of this experience!

Perfect Organisation

Watched fhe FlaFlu in April 2023. It was perfect organised - meeting point, the way to the stadium, getting to the seats and going back to the city. Pedro informed us much about football in Rio. It was very interesting. The only thing which went wrong - Flamengo lost the match...

Super plan! Fully recommended !

We had a super plan in Rio with Pedro who took us to the famous Maracaná stadium to attend the classic Carioca derbi Fla-Flu!! Flamengo vs. Fluminense in the first leg of the Carioca Championship 2023. We enjoyed the group and the atmosphere going to the stadium, inside and coming out. Everything was organized by Pedro including taxi drive to the stadium, a visit to a local bar for a beer, typical street food ( if you wanted) and the match tickets. Atmosphere was wonderful and Flamengo won! ❤️🖤 thanks Pedro! I would recommend this plan to anyone visiting Rio! We love it!

SO MUCH FUN!

Pedro was amazing! He picked me up at the subway, took me to a local bar for a drink, then we walked to the stadium with all the fans. He met some people he knew which was great, because then in the stadium there were a group of us - which made us feel safe but also like the locals! The game & atmosphere was outstanding. The manager made some questionable subs but the Flamengo fans were so good. I can not recommend doing this with Pedro highly enough, it was a great experience and I did not stop smiling.

Thank you, Pedro! It was a once in a lifetime experience for us at the Flamingo Championship game for Copa Do Brazil! There was never a dull moment! For such a big game with heightened emotions we were a little apprehensive about safety, but you took great care of us from the initial booking all the way to the end. We had never and will never again experience anything like a championship game in Brazil at Maracana stadium!
