Overview

Welcome to the Botafogo Matchday Experience – the most authentic and exciting soccer experience Rio de Janeiro can offer!

If you are a soccer lover, a sports enthusiast or simply someone looking for a unique experience in Brazil, you can’t miss the chance to participate in this exclusive event.

My name is Matheus Butrucci. I’m a history teacher, currently studying for a master’s degree in history and a great soccer enthusiast, especially Botafogo. I’ve been working for Homefans for two and a half years and, through it, I honor my grandfather’s legacy and feel honored to be able to show Botafogo to people all over the world. By my side, you’ll have a guide, a teacher and a passionate fan who will do his best to infect you with my passion for Botafogo.

Founded in 1904, Botafogo is one of Brazil’s oldest and most traditional clubs. Over the years, the team has won countless titles and produced Brazilian soccer legends such as Garrincha and Carlos Alberto Torres. Although they’ve had ups and downs throughout their history, Botafogo are currently in great shape, fighting in the Libertadores playoffs and with a great chance of doing well in the Brazilian championship. You’ll have the chance to see this incredible team in action at the Nilton Santos stadium, together with me and my friends who are also passionate Botafogo fans.

Imagine joining a local guide who is passionate about soccer for a full day of fun, culture and history of Rio soccer. We’ll start our day at a meeting point in Copacabana, where I’ll take you to meet other Botafogo fans in one of the liveliest and most authentic places in the city. There you can enjoy drinks and a barbecue while learning more about Rio’s soccer culture and Botafogo’s history and getting the inside scoop on the clubs and competitions! After soaking up the pre-match atmosphere, we’ll head to the stadium.

We will then embark on an exciting journey at the Nilton Santos Stadium. The building was completed in 2007 and hosted the athletics games at the 2016 Olympic Games. This is where the action really begins! You’ll have the chance to join the passionate Botafogo fans, supporting their team in a unique and vibrant atmosphere. I’ll be by your side throughout the game, explaining the moves and the club’s traditions.

You won’t have to worry about a thing – the experience includes a ticket to the game, a guide who speaks fluent English and even a barbecue and a local beer to make your experience even more special.

So, what are you waiting for? Don’t miss the chance to join us on an incredible and unforgettable soccer adventure! Book your place on the Botafogo Matchday Experience now and get ready for a unique and exciting experience you’ll never forget.

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.

Great Rio soccer experience

This was one of the highlights of our family's first trip to Rio! We went to the local derby game against Vasco de Game in February, and had the best time. The whole match day experience was great from pre-gaming outside and sampling the local food, to enjoying the energetic atmosphere and sitting with the local fans in the stadium. Thank you Matheus!

Great experience

My friend Richard and I had a great time with Matheus and his friends. They brought us through the real experience of going to a Botafogo game and it was a really amazing evening. They made the whole experience so easy, organising everything for us, explaining how everything worked and choosing the best seats in the stadium to watch from. I would highly recommend anyone interested in attending a football game in Rio to join up with Matheus and his friends!

Best experience ever!

Matheus was an amazing host who has an extreme passion for his team, community and the game of football. Matheus treats you like family that is visiting teaching you all of the history, traditions and customs when attending a game. Matheus put us in the heart of the excitement and thrill of being a fan of the game. This was truly a memorable event and will not be forgotten. My wife and I truly appreciate every Matheus did to make this positively unforgettable! Thank you Matheus!

Amazing experience

Went to the Sampaio Corrêa pre-season regional tournament game so there wasn’t a full stadium but it was still well worth it. Atmosphere was great before during and after the game, the time flew by unfortunately. Mateus was a phenomenal guide, very knowledgeable on botafogo, world football and plenty more. We also met some of his friends and hung out in some local spots which was lovely. 10/10

Fantastic Experience

I was part of the group that attended Botafogo V Santos. Matheus was an attentive and well organised guide from the moment we booked! He provided us with plenty of information before hand and ensured that we were well informed of our meeting point and times and itinerary. Matheus then organised transport to the surrounding area of the stadium where he provided us with food, drinks and began to explain the history of the club to us whilst we could absorb the atmosphere happening around us. Afterwards we stayed for a few more short drinks before Matheus organised a taxi back to our hotel. Would highly recommend this experience to anyone wanting to watch football in Rio!

Great experience - will return for sure

I was part of a group that went to see Botafogo - Santos match at Olympic stadium. It was unique experience to see such a great crowd atmosphere. Matheus was perfect host, speaking very good English he explained to us all about Botafogo's history and about other clubs in Rio. We even got barbecue stick with excellent meat and couple of beers from him. During all this time we really felt as part of the crowd, outside and inside the stadium, all fans were friendly and supportive. At the end Matheus booked taxi for us. Really nice experience end-to-end, highly recommended!

Amazing Adventure!

Matheus was a wonderful host for this amazing experience watching Botafogo. He was very proactive ensuring we had all our questions answered, and did a great job explaining the history of Botafogo and a lot about football culture at Botafogo and Rio in general. The match itself was incredible, and the atmosphere cant be beat. I highly recommend this experience!

Great service overall! Matheus and Mari managed it really well. We took an Uber to close to the stadium and had some beer and BBQ which was included. Nice spot where many locals pregame as we. Then off to the stadium where we could stand a together close to the ultras. Would recommend a visit!

Amazing Experience, Obrigado Matheus

Attending a Botafogo match with Matheus was an unforgettable experience that I'll cherish for a lifetime. Matheus, with his infectious enthusiasm and friendly demeanor, made the entire day an absolute blast. He's not just a football fan; he's a true aficionado, and his passion for the game is palpable. From sharing interesting insights about the team's history to waxing nostalgic about his grandpa, he added a vibrant layer to the entire experience. But it wasn't just Matheus who made the day remarkable; his girlfriend Mari was a significant help in keeping things organized. She ensured we had our tickets, snacks, and drinks in order, allowing us to fully focus on enjoying the match. The energy at the Botafogo stadium was electrifying, unlike anything I had ever experienced in a sporting event. The crowd's enthusiasm was infectious, and the chanting, cheering, and singing of fans created an atmosphere that was nothing short of magical. It was as if the stadium itself came alive with the spirit of the game.

The whole experience is well organised and gives you an authentic match day experience. I went alone and felt safe and was able to mix with a whole group of football loving travellers.

Matheus is amazing!

I had so much fun at my first ever football match! Matheus is patient, thoughtful, and incredibly kind. We met many other travelers at the event including some of his close friends who came to support Botafogo. They all spoke English so it was easy to learn about the game and communicate with them. Matheus took great care of us making sure we had drinks and food, that we stayed together as a group and arrived safely at the stadium. Our driver was fantastic, and she was also Matheus's partner! You can tell he has a passion for the sport and brings people to help him on the tour that he really trusts. I would recommend watching the match with Matheus and cant wait to do another tour with him the next time I visit Rio. Thank you Matheus and friends!!! GOO BOTAFOGOOO!!

Botafogo v Athletico Paranaense

Matheus you are an absolute legend, totally love this guy for his passion for football and especially his club Botafogo. He looked after my family from start to finish and really engaged with my 2 young children. Being in his company for the evening totally enhanced the experience of the game and meeting his fellow fans and girlfriend just made everything more personal. First time I’ve used Homefans and I’ve now already booked another game with them. Football has been crying out for years for somebody to come up with a concept of what they do and how they do it and I’m just glad you guys have. Thank you so much and even bigger thank you to Matheus. Fingers crossed Botafogo now go on and win the league for the first time since 1995.

An incredible experience of Brazilian football with a warm and engaging guide Mattheus whose knowledge of Botafogo was superb. The pre match area he took us to was amazing engaging with fellow Botafogo supporters and he introduced us to some of his friends who also attended the game with us which enhanced the experience. The atmosphere at the game was incredible seeing the passion of the fans. I would 110% recommend a trip with this guide for any football fan.

Amazing experience from start to finish. Organization was excellent. The host and his crew made sure we were comfortable at all times: food and drinks were offered before the start of the game. The food was great ( barbecue). Nice vibes outside the stadium. Inside we had amazing seats with a great view of the players. I definitely recommend this experience as it’s one of the best I had in Río de Janeiro so far. Nothing to complain about, left with beautiful memories!

Matheus was a fantastic host with a deep and passionate love of Botafogo - which was infectious. We saw a great game of football with Botafogo coming back to win 3-1 with the fans in great voice and a special atmosphere. We were travelling with our teenage daughter and I am especially thankful that Matheus made sure we felt very safe throughout including his brother taking us back to Copa late at night after the game. I couldn’t recommend this any higher!! UTB x 2

Amazing! Must do while in Rio

This was such an incredible experience. Matheus and his friend Daniel were excellent hosts. I did not have to worry about any of the details or planning at any point- Matheus took care of everything. The Botofogo crowd was electric and the atmosphere was one of the best I have been to. The whole time it felt like going to a game with friends, rather then a tour- which made it even more special. I highly recommend this experience as Matheus makes it all so easy. This was one of, if not the, top highlight of our time in Rio.

Mr

Wow!! What an experience. We attended Botafogo v Coritiba while on holiday from the UK and it was a truly unforgettable day. Our guide, Matheus, was brilliant form the word go. He gave me assurances that everything promised by Homefans would be taken care of and he was right. He kept me informed of arrangements etc and was there at the arranged meeting place to greet us with a friendly smile... and soon after a beer too! It could have been a daunting experience going to a game in a place I'd never been to before but Matheus was friendly, chatty and impeccably organised. He and his fellow guide did everything to make sure we enjoyed our day to the full, right down to getting us amazing barbecued food taking us all to a good spot to get an Uber back to our respective hotels. Very impressed with our guides and with Homefans.

Botafogo for life! 🤍🖤

Just Wow! I completed a two week solo tour of Argentina and Brazil solely based on Football going to 9 different games. and Botafogo left me forever a fan! Mateus was an absolute Hero, who was so passionate on Botafogo and made you fall in love with the club, he was so well organised, welcoming and cracked opened a beer with you once we got to the pre game! He also matched this with his knowledge and passion of the beautiful game which made the experience 10 times better. The atmosphere was so special, flares, fireworks, chanting and waving flags everywhere you looked, we was immersed with the locals from start to finish. If you go to a game in Rio make sure you go to Botafogo, you won’t regret it! 12/10 would recommend to anybody! I will definitely be returning one day. Just to feel part of the botofoga family once again! 🖤🤍

The Botafogo Matchday experience was one of the highlights of our honeymoon trip to Rio. The atmosphere inside and outside the stadium was amazing, the match was fun to watch and Matheus was an excellent host! Matheus is a passionate fan who is very knowledgeable about the team. He is also very attentive as a host. I recommend the Botafogo Matchday experience to anyone who is looking to see a match in Rio!

Amazing experience!

The Botafogo FR intuition I made suddenly during my trip to Rio, Brazil became a precious memory in my life. In addition to the passionate street cheering of the home fans, it was very moving to see them keep their seats even though it was late, regardless of the match result, and support the players until the moment they left. The expected arrival time, which I found out in advance on Google search, was more than 50 minutes away from the actual match day due to severe traffic jams. I hope other people know this and deal with it. For those of you who have not yet experienced the Brazilian football cheering culture, it would be nice to take this opportunity to become a fan of Botafogo FR, which has great football skills and a great star mark. Also, I was sorry that I arrived late at the meeting point due to severe traffic congestion unintentionally, but I am very grateful to the guide Mr. Matheus, who gave kind explanations and led me from the first meeting, and helped me safely return home even in the crowd of locals.

An Amazing Experience with local guide

I had the pleasure of enjoying an extraordinary match day experience, guided by the remarkable Matheus. A true aficionado of his team, his passion and attentiveness were unparalleled. He graciously arranged for our transportation, escorting us from our hotel to the stadium and securing the best seats. With his command of the English language, Matheus deftly communicated every detail, ensuring we felt secure throughout the entire event. The entire experience exceeded our expectations, leaving us with lasting memories. I heartily recommend home fans to those seeking the ultimate match day experience. It is a concept deserving of the highest praise.

Great Experience!

Had an awesome time at the Botafogo vs São Paulo. Matheus took us right into the supporters section, which was an amazing experience (especially with a late winner). He also ensured we experienced the best of the pre-match festivities, making the whole experience fantastic. Logistically, pre and post match travel, and security and ticket check points were all smooth with no hiccups. I highly recommend checking out a Botafogo match at the Nilton Santos stadium with Matheus!

Our group had a brilliant time watching Botafogo beat São Paulo. Matheus was a great host. Communication was perfect and we were well looked after the whole day. I would highly recommend this to anyone with a love of football. Hope to visit again soon!

Fantastic experience!!!

I would highly recommend booking a tour with Matheus! We had the best experience with him, he showed us what it was like to go to a game as a real Botafogo fan and took great care of us. The game itself was incredible, but knowing where to hang out before the game and where to sit was just as important and we wouldn't have been able to do that alone. If you are thinking of going to a game I would highly recommend booking this tour. Matheus is a great guy and his passion for the game is obvious.

An amazing experience with one of the most passionate teams in Brazil!

Matheus is such a lovely host who explained a lot of the history behind the derby. He was also very accomodating with any questions We had great seats and were right next to the Botafogo ultras. You can feel the passion and support is truly next level. Even though Botafogo sadly lost, the energy was incredible. I came home a Botafogo fan! Highly recommended!
