Hi, I’m Matheus, your local host! Join me on one of the most memorable experiences that a football lover can have in Rio de Janeiro: a game of Botafogo at Nilton Santos Stadium! You will have an authentic experience of going on a Botafogo match as if you were a local fan, living the carioca football culture in the middle of one of the most passionate fans in Brazil as if you had lived this all your life!
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!
We will at the lobby of your hotel (Copacabana, Ipanema, Leblon beaches). From there your tour will begin as you take taxis/Uber and go to a place where Vasco da Gama supporters meet before the match. Our pre-match we will have some beers (or other desired drinks) and have some barbecues! Here I will tell you the best stories of Vasco da Gama and Carioca football and you will be aware of everything about the clubs and competitions!! Once we soaked up this pre-match atmosphere, we will make our way to the stadium.
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.
At Nilton Santos 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.
This experience includes a match ticket, subway/taxi ticket, English speaking guide, 1 barbecue and 2 local beers.

Rio’s stadiums have returned to 100% capacity. We cannot guarantee that restrictions will not return but we will keep all customers up to date on any developments.
To enter a Rio stadium you will need to prove you are fully vaccinated using your countries official health app.
Fixtures have been released however it is possible that Sunday matches will move to Saturday and vice-versa. We advise you to consider this when making your wider travel plans.
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!
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.
