Brazil is, and always has been,  synonymous with football.  The national team are respected (and feared) across the world – and the domestic league, which provides the breeding ground for the national team, offers lively, passionate and exciting matches. 

This custom tour will cover Brazil’s best city Rio de Janeiro  and will combine football, samba, passion and sightseeing!

Rio de Janeiro is the most beautiful and charming city in Brazil, which is also reflected in its football! In addition, it is home to the great rivalry between Flamengo and Fluminense – considered by Four Four Two magazine to be one of the most intense derbies in the world – and the birthplace of legends such as Zico, Garrincha, Nilton Santos and others.

Beyond that, Botafogo and Vasco da Gama are the other two big clubs in the city, both playing in stadiums where their neighborhood, fans and atmosphere can surprise you! You will have an authentic experience of going on a  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!

We have curated a handful of unique local-led experiences so you can soak up in the authentic Carioca atmosphere, join a local to show you around his highlights of the club and the city, and to have unforgettable memories for the future! No need to worry about planning where to go, how to get a ticket for entrance or how to travel. We got you covered.

The responsibility to carry out the activity relies exclusively on the local host. However, we as a marketplace act in the interests of everyone, supervising everything and facilitating  communication and support when needed for a flawless experience.

Is the match date confirmed?

Whilst the fixture calendar has been released, final confirmed dates are usually announced 2-3 weeks before the kick-off date, due to TV schedule. It is possible then, that Sunday matches will move to Saturday and vice-versa.  The local hosts will keep you posted in case there is a change.

They last between 2 hours up to a whole day. Please check the inclusions in each activity on the “What’s Included‘ section.

How will the host get in touch?

Once the booking is done, you will receive an order confirmation and the Homefans tech platform will notify the host about it. You can always chat with the host on the marketplace by clicking on the ‘ASK A QUESTION‘ button – you will send and receive messages you can check on your own dashboard with email notifications.

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!
