The Botafogo Matchday Experience will take you through a day filled with football, culture, and history as you will experience a match of Botafogo, in the incredible Olympic Stadium, in Rio de Janeiro. This private experience will leave you filled with unforgettable memories and a ton of amazing highlights!
The build was finished in 2007 and it hosted the athletics competitions at the 2016 Summer Olympics. To give you a hint, their glory days are in the past. They used to have the best team in Brazil. Of all clubs, Botafogo had the most players for the national team in that period. Names such as Carlos Alberto Torres and Garrincha have an important role in their history.
The afternoon will start with a gathering in the south zone (Copacabana, Ipanema, Leblon Beaches) by our Local Host, Matheus, who knows a lot about Carioca football and its culture. From there your tour will begin as you take the subway and go to the pre-match experience to enjoy some beers and local food, before travelling to the Olympic Stadium.
After the match, we will go back to the same place to celebrate (hopefully) their victory in style!
At the Olympic Stadium, you will be able to experience a home match of Botafogo together with a local who will guide you throughout the evening. No need to worry about planning where to go, how to get a ticket for entrance or how to travel. We got you covered.
