Hi everyone! My name is Fernando Illanes, 26 years old, born and raised in São Paulo, Brazil. As a journalist, I’ve worked for 4 years at Corinthians’ Communication Department and as a Community Manager at Copa America 2019. In the past few years, as a football lover, I’ve experienced football matches in São Paulo, Santos, Porto Alegre, Rio de Janeiro, Salvador, Buenos Aires, Madrid, Barcelona, Lisbon, London, Rome, Warsaw and Sarajevo.
In this tour, I will be meeting you up in the city centre of São Paulo and we’ll drive to the city of one of the most famous football clubs in the world: Santos! After a 1 hour trip from São Paulo, I’ll take to visit the traditional Vila Belmiro Stadium, where players like Pelé, Robinho and Neymar started their glorious careers. Get to know the museum, press conference room, locker rooms, pitch, stands and more.
After knowing some about Santos FC history, I’ll take you to have a look at Santos beaches. If you want, feel free to participate in a beach football or a footvolley match. After that, a seafood meal at one of the most traditional restaurants in town waiting for us. Try the best kind of fishes and shellfish with a nice view of the Brazilian ocean nearby.
In the end, I will take you back to São Paulo and say Goodbye to the group!
