Overview

The almighty and old school stadium of Vasco da Gama: São Januário!

Estádio São Januário, home to Vasco da Gama, it is the most amazing and authentic football stadium in Rio de Janeiro and the only football ground within Rio de Janeiro to be privately owned. The stadium has its history directly linked to the Cruzmaltino fans and they are intensely identified with the neighborhood, which over time has also been called Vasco da Gama! In addition, Barreira do Vasco (favela located behind the stadium), has its life and economy all related to the club and its matches!

In addition, Vasco’s history is marked by the inclusion of blacks, workers, and the poor in football, which in its early days was marked by the elitism of most clubs! Do you want to know more about these fight stories? Vasco da Gama provides a unique experience within the Rio de Janeiro football scene and this is certainly one that is worthwhile! Knowing the history of one of the most traditional clubs in the country will definitely be remembered!

You will go with private transportation to a community that breaths Vasco da Gama. In every corner, you fell the intense atmosphere until you reach their stadium. Probably the best ground you can find in the city, you don’t want to miss it!

Unique

What a amazing experience this is. Maybe not the best team, but there is a very nice story about this club. And the stadium is very unique by it architectural syle. Main reason for me was to visit this stadiuym because of Romario. But this club has so much more. And Matheus is a great guide. We did a combo visit with Maracana and Vasca da Gama on one day, and all was good organised by Matheus. Thanks for this amazing tour.
