Overview

Do you love football? Join me in one of the most memorable experiences that a football lover can have in Rio de Janeiro: a Fluminense match at Maracanã! You will have an authentic experience of going to a Fluminense match as if you were a local fan and living the culture of Rio de Janeiro football.

Our Fluminense Match Day Experience will take you through a day filled with football, culture, and history as you will experience a match in the incredible Maracaña, in Rio de Janeiro. This private tour will leave you filled with unforgettable memories and a ton of amazing highlights.

The Maracanã Stadium is, without a doubt, one of the most iconic in the world! It has already hosted two World Cup finals among other major world football competitions! In addition, it’s home to Fluminense matches, one of the most traditional teams in the country!

You will have the chance to meet Fluminense supporters, with colours which are easily identified by the striking contrast of maroon, green and white, earning the team its nickname of “tricolor carioca”. Founded in 1902, it has a notable history of success with 31 wins at state championships and four wins at Brazilian National League!

We will meet in a preset meeting point and we will go to the stadium by metro. This is much nicer because we will be in contact with other fans who will be going to the match and with other people who are in their daily lives. On the surroundings of the Maracanã, we will take a tour around the stadium and to the location of our pre-match with by several Fluminense fans. We will drink some beers (or other drink you want) and eat some barbecues! Here I’ll tell you the best stories about Fluminense and Rio de Janeiro football and you’ll find out about the clubs and competitions!

Inside the stadium you will be among one of the most passionate fans in the country and will have the opportunity to cheer along with the ultras/organized supporters groups! After being in a game full of emotions and being sure that you will have amazing memories for the rest of your life, it’s time to head back to the hotel!

At the Maracaña you will be able to experience a home match of Fluminense 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.

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.

Fluminense Copa Libertadores Match

Watched Copa Libertadores Match vs Cerro Porteno at the Maracanar, the home of Brazilian football. Firstly what a stadium, what an experience and what an atmosphere! Pedro was a great host showing us places to drink beforehand and after. Felt really safe throughout. Although it is slightly expensive would 100% recommend this if you like football and want to see how passionste Brazilians are about their football

Great experience

Great night at that Fla Copa Lib match v Pedro Porteno. Pedro was a conscientious host who looked after us very well and made us feel safe (although the atmosphere pre and at the match was very friendly and not threatening in any way). Great fun pre-match drinks in the streets outside bars with Pedro, his mates and other Flu fans. Fun and diverse group with guests from the Cayman Islands, U.K. and Italy. Sole travelers (m or f) feel very safe and I highly recommend

Pedro is an amazing host who took care of everyone from start to finish. He gave us all a comprehensive background on the club before taking us to mingle with all the home fans and having a couple of beers. The Fluminese fans are passionate and the the atmosphere was electric, to witness a game at the Maracana is a once in a lifetime experience. Pedro helped navigate us out the ground, some went home in cabs but we chose to have drinks and soak up the atmosphere further. A match day experience with Pedro is a must if you are in Rio!

Great Experience

Navigating the entry points and neighborhoods can be daunting for a tourist, and Pedro's Homefans experience was the perfect way to enjoy the game without the stress. Partying with the local Fluminense fans before the game was also a highlight, as they are so welcoming and fun to hang with. Best part was that Pedro's communication was solid, and he even spotted me my cab fare because I ran out of Reals (stupid tourist, I know). Thank you my friend!

5 stars all around!

Absolutely brilliant evening with Pedro! We had an amazing pre-match experience with the locals and superb seats with amazing views of the game. Pedro looked after us so well from start to finish - would strongly recommend using Pedro for any Fluminense matches - he is a die hard fan, knowledgeable guide and it was an excellent experience from start to finish! It was extra special watching Fluminense coming back from behind to win the cup too on 29th Feb!!!

Amazing night at the Maracana with Pedro

We had the best night at a football match in the Maracana stadium. Pedro guided us through the evening perfectly and we felt safe throughout! We started the evening with some beers close to the stadium before we walked there. The atmosphere in the stadium is the best. Its an absolute must to cross off your list if you’re a football fan in Rio.

Visiting South America's Champion in the Maracaná

We really enjoyed attending a football match at the legendary Maracaná Stadium. And then even a game of the newly crowned champion of South America Fluminense! Because Pedro was so organised, everything was super relaxed and we were able to enjoy the trip perfectly. The atmosphere in our group and in the stadium was great and Pedro was always ready with lots of additional information about the club. It was a great trip, thanks again Pedro!

Incredible Experience, Incredible Host

I would strongly recommend going to the world-famous Maracana if you are visiting Rio and I even more strongly recommend doing it through Pedro. Pedro was an amazing host. He was kind, organized, friendly, and happily answered any questions about Rio, football in Brasil, or anything else that I or the others in my group had. I have been to two other matches at the Maracana and this one was by far the best experience because Pedro was there to show us a great time before and during the match and help us get home safely after the match.

Top Experience with an Amazing Host

Pedro was a excellent host, who happily answered all my questions prior to the match experience and even went out of his way to source me tickets for the Brazil v Argentina match the same week, which he didn’t have to do. Pedro went above and beyond for me acting more as a friend than a guide during my short time in the city. The overall experience was also excellent, with Pedro ensuring seats in an area with an amazing atmosphere and perfect view to ensure a top experience. Prior transport to the stadium was also organised ensuring we arrived early enough for pre match drinks which Pedro also organised for the group. So overall a top experience and an even better guide which I would highly recommend.

Copa Libertadores Semi Final First Leg: Fluminense vs Internacional

My friend and I watched the semi final first leg Copa Libertadores match between Fluminense and Internacional at the Maracana and what a game we were treated to - 4 goals and a sending off! Pedro is an excellent host and he promised us a pre match street party with drinks before the game and he didn't let us down. I have never experienced a prematch atmosphere like that before. It was absolutely brilliant! Our seats were located behind the goal and for the whole time we were there, we were joining in with all of the singing and bouncing around. This was the first football game of my South American trip and it was certainly a memorable one. After the game, Pedro made sure that we all got home safely. I can't recommend Pedro and the Fluminense Matchday experience enough! It was certainly a 5 star experience.

Fluminense vs Botafogo

The experience was phenomenal! It was my first time at a match in Brazil and it lived up to my expectations. Before the game we went to the local bars and met other Fluminense fans. During the game, the crowd was insane, chanting all game and even afterwards. Amazing experience if you’re in Rio and love football, I 100% recommend.

Fluminense-Botafogo

To whoever is still wondering whether they’ll book a match experience with my man Pedro or not, do not hesitate further and go for it, Pedro is the goat. My friends and I loved so much the journey he planned for us. A wonderful experience with someone who's deeply in love with Fluminense and has been so nice to us. One again thank you Pedro, we'll never forget our Maracana experience thanks to you. 🫱🏻‍🫲🏼

Fluminense with Pedro

We watched a Copa Libertadores semi final at the Maracana. A great watch with 4 goals and a sending off. What really made this experience special though was our host Pedro. He really makes you feel like a 'Homefan' Communication was perfect from the start. He met us on time and took us to the streets around the ground to enjoy the atmosphere and some drinks. He had quite a big group but made time for all of us and introduced us to some local fans and his friends. We were behind the goal for the game where all the best atmosphere was and along with Pedro, we got involved in all the singing and bouncing. After the game he made sure everyone got home safely. I cant recommend Pedro highly enough and he made sure our first experience of South American football was a special one.

Excellent experience

My trip to see Fluminense at the Maracana was an absolute highlight of my trip to South America. Pedro communicated all the necessary details beforehand and kept in touch on the day of the game. The pre-game and match experience was amazing - I 100% recommend this to any football fan. Pedro was the perfect host, who ensured all participants were safely transported back to their hotel afterwards. As a solo female traveller, Pedro ensured all the stress was taken out of the experience by organising all the practical arrangements for all participants. I hope to be back someday!

Fluminense with Pedro

Pedro was wonderful and took great care of us before, during and after the Fluminense match at the Maracanã. He is very attentive and communicative before the match, establishing the meeting times and points. We took the metro to the game and began the pregame with other fans next to the Maracanã. We went into the stadium with our group of around 10 people and witnessed a beautiful free kick goal with an unmatched atmosphere. After Fluminense's victory, Pedro took care of our rides back to our hotels and was a great and respectful host all around. You won't regret booking Pedro for your next match!

Amazing Maracanā Experience

Mannnn! This was probably one of the most exciting lifetime experiences. Pedro was a huge part in ensuring that happened- from initial contact, meeting everyone (group was 12-14), taking a walk, riding the train, pregaming with other Fluminense fans, to walking into THE Maracanã stadium and ultimately watching Fluminense take the W home. Couldn’t be more appreciative of how everything was handled by Pedro- def recommend booking. Then book again for the next time you want to go!!

AMAZING Experience

Pedro is an INCREDIBLE tour guide. From start to finish he made sure everything was well organized, kept everyone in the loop, and most of all, made sure that the whole group felt welcomed!! I have been a football fan my whole life, and I must say, I have never experienced a greater atmosphere than I did at the Fluminense-Olimpia game at the world famous Maracanã. To anyone considering booking the Fluminense match day experience with Pedro, I give my full recommendation. What an unforgettable night, thank you again Pedro!

Amazing experience! Would always recommend

The experience that Pedro prepared for us on match day was incredible. Pedro was very attentive the entire time making sure we were enjoying ourselves. Getting to hangout with true Fluminense fans blocks away from the pitch and the seat location was optimal to enjoy the show on the stands and the field (they truly are two different shows). We highly recommend this experience

Fantastic matchday experience in Rio!

What a fantastic experience we had with our guy Pedro in the Maracanã-stadium. Me and my family of 6 watched the Fluminense vs Santos match, together with a few others that joined the group. Thanks to Pedro we had a great day. Perfectly clear communication before, during and after the match. He looked well after the group of 14 in total, making it a welcoming experience, telling us about the history and culture of the team and the stadium and taking us around whilst we enjoyed a drink or two. We would definitely recommend booking via HomeFans and if you go to see Fluminense, go with Pedro!

What an amazing experience! I booked with homefans for the Fluminense v Santos match. Our guide Pedro was brilliant. He took care of everything and was always available with updates and to answer questions. On the day he looked after us and took any of the stress out of things. Watching with a group of similar people travelling or on holiday was really good too. Overall an unforgettable day. Thanks Pedro.

We had a wonderful time with our guide Pedro at Fluminese vs sporting Crystal in the Copa Libertadores. Pedro picked us and our group of 9 up from Copacabana beach. He then took us to the ground and got us beers and bbq food from local fam bars. We soaked up the atmosphere before going into the ground where Pedro helped us get club merchandise. I have been to many games around the world but the atmosphere here was incredible. The fans singing, the drums, the concourse pre game. Was incredible! Pedro also helped us get a taxi home. Overall it was an incredible experience and we were delighted they made it through to the next round and Pedro was a great guide with lots of knowledge and passion for his team!

Excellent Experience

Coming from the states I feel like a football match at Maracanã is a must when in Rio. We had a larger group with some younger fans. Pedro did an amazing job keeping an eye on all of us. Not once did I feel vulnerable or fearful. It was fun to have a drink and eat before the game with all the other fans. This was a blast and I highly recommend Pedro.

Pedro is absolutely the best guide to watch a Fluminense match with. The day was just perfect. Everything was well organised and we had a lot of fun. You can feel the love pedro has for the club. After a day with Pedro you're sure a fluminense fan too. It was a unique experience that I recommend to everyone. Thank you for everything Pedro!

He organized everything perfectly, so we had such a great time. Before the game we were eating Brazilian BBQ and drank some beers in a street full of Fluminense fans close to the Maracanã Stadium. The atmosphere in the stadium was unforgettable because of having great seats. I highly recommend booking this! It was an amazing experience and it’s so much easier to get tickets without worrying about anything.

Amazing Experience

Pedro was an unbelievable host and went above and beyond. He made our whole trip enjoyable and all round nice guy. Even before we got to Rio he was happy to suggest restaurants and places to visit. The experience was that good that myself and a group of friends went to 3 football matches within 6 days. Pedro ensured that we were safe even when we went to the derby and sat amongst the ultras. Couldn’t recommend his service enough. He has good footballing knowledge too, so definitely worth finding out the history of Fluminense as he’s willing to explain.

Incredible experience in the Final Fluminenes vs Flamengo

Pedro was a great guide, and we lived the match in another level at Maracana. We coudn´t have had a better experience and also been able to watch the final. Pedro was very friendly, all the time he was asking us if we are confortable. We lived the real brasilian experience in that match Thanks Pedro, I will recommend Pedro 100%

Fluminense FC Incredible Experience! Must-Do while in Rio

An absolutely incredible night seeing a Fluminense/Vasco match at historic Maracanã — I would say that this was “once-in-a-lifetime,” but I have no doubt that I’ll be back in Rio and will sign up for another Fluminense match with Pedro when I do. He was an amazing host — kind, welcoming, and looked out for our safety at all parts of the night. He taught us the history of the club, the rivalries, and sitting deep in the “fan section” was an experience I’ll never forget (we left drenched in baby powder and beer in the best way possible). The cost included some drinks, food, match tickets, and Ubers at the end of the night to ensure we all got SAFELY back to Copacabana as a group. Special thanks as well to Pedro’s friend Rafaella and Pedro's brother too, who were instrumental in making sure we had fun and were safe and together as a group. I will absolutely return for another game (in my Fluminense jersey of course, and with some improved Portugese to go along with it); I consider Pedro my Brazilian brother now, and hope to return the favor at Yankee Stadium in NYC sometime soon! You won’t regret this 10-out-of-10 experience in Rio.

Amazing Derby Experience

To be honest, I've been sceptical about booking via homefans and go to the Fla-Flu-Derby with a tour guide. But I was desperated, common tickets were sold out and I at all cost wanted to get into the legendary Maracana. So I gave it a try - and really got surprised. Pedro not only was one of the nicest guys I've ever met, he also really is a passionate Fan of Fluminense, taught me a lot about Brazilian football culture and gave me and my girlfriend the best experience: we drank beer with the locals, he even got us into the supporters section (he seem to know everyone) and booked us a taxi back to our hostel. He really took care of us. The atmosphere was outstanding, a football match I will remember for a long time. I normally don't write reviews, but if someone deserve it then Pedro. Give him your money - you won't regret it.

Fluminese - Botafoga Derby: Awesome Experience

We went with a group of 12 friends together with our guide Pedro and his brother to the derby game Fluminese-Botafoga last week! I can still feel the rush and excitement when I think back on it! This was an experience I will remember all my life. First of all I would like to thank homefans! Everything from planning, questions and payment went very smooth! This organization is the best if you would like to see a football game abroad! They got me in contact with Pedro (our local host and Ultra fan of Fluminese)! I contacted Pedro for some extra questions before the game and he was super responsive and enthusiastic! He picked us up at the hotel to go pre-gaming in the streets around Maracana. So much fun to be among the real fans! Entering Maracana for me was as stepping in football heaven! Such a memorable temple!!! He found us some great ‘seats’ (nobody’s sitting! 😂😂) among the Fluminese Ultras! We sang , drank and jumped all match! So much fun! Pedro explained us the history of the club, why he’s so fanatic and his love of the game! I’m a big football fan, but my American friends never saw a match in person! Everybody (girls and boys) still say this was the highlight of our Brazilian trip! This is a must do! Pedro thank you for the amazing experience! We’ll stay in touch!!! Homefans thank you for setting this up!

Amazing FlaFlu experience

I have been to many football games, but the FlaFlu derby in Maracana was a once-in-a-lifetime experience - also thanks to our guide Mattheus. This guy „breathes“ football and Flamengo. He made sure that we get the real Rio derby experience including pre-Game gatherings with the fans and seats right in between the most passionate supporters. He made sure we’re feeling comfortable and are safe the entire night. This wouldn’t have been possible without him. Obrigado!
