When my girlfriend and I decided to holiday in Brazil, I made watching a match a must-do activity. I found Homefans accidentally while searching for FlaFlu tickets on third-party ticket sites. Needless to say, I don't regret my decision to avoid the big sites and go with Homefans. It ended up being the trip's highlight and helped me connect with Brazilians elsewhere later on. Experiencing FlaFlu with Matheus made the match much more memorable. Beforehand, he took us by metro to an area outside the stadium where supporters congregated. We drank beers, met other like-minded folks, and watched supporters play drums and wave flags. Matheus educated us about Flamengo's history and importance as well as the FlaFlu rivalry. He made entry to the stadium quick and easy, and the match was a joy to watch. We were seated beside Flamengo supporters groups, which cheered from match start to finish. Afterward, he returned by metro to the meeting point. After Rio, I visited the Brazilian Pantanal for wildlife watching. While there, I wore my Flamengo shirt to dinner one night at a hotel. The waitstaff saw the shirt, got excited, and asked if I liked Flamengo. I told them I watched FlaFlu in person the week before and showed them videos from the match. They were so surprised I went to the match that they invited me to their home to watch a Flamengo-Gremio match. That was a fantastic experience, too --one I wouldn't have found on the typical tourist trail. Thanks to Homefans and Matheus, I watched FlaFlu at the Maracanã and a Flamengo-Gremio match in a small northern Pantanal village with people I now call great friends.

Matheus took my family and I (as well as a handful of other friendly guests) to see the local derby Fluminense-Flamengo at Maracaña in July of 2023. It was a memorable experience for sure. The atmosphere was enthralling and the match was intense at this legendary stadium. We had good seats close to the Flamengo fans and with a clear view of the pitch. It’s easy to get drinks and snacks during the match and the logistics in and around Maracaña works well. Before the match Matheus took us to get a beer in a street nearby full of partying Flamengo fans with flags, singing, music, barbecue, and beers. It was an authentic and super fun build-up to the game. We felt safe and well taken care of the entire time from being picked up at a local metro station close to our hotel to being dropped off there again at the end of the day. Matheus reached out to me well ahead of the match to share relevant information and answer questions. His English is good and he was punctual and managed the whole process in a tidy manner. Highly recommended.

A highlight of our 10 days in Brazil was with Matheus and seeing a Flamengo match. We booked this 6 weeks in advance, as our family loves to see games while traveling. While in Brazil we were approached many ways to see this game. 1. They were all more expensive than Home Fans. 2. Home fans and Matheus made us feel like we were really a part of the Flamengo core fans, so we could enjoy this game like a true supporter. Nobody else offered this. Thank you, Matheus and Homefans for an experience of a lifetime! Erich

I went with Matheus for the Fluminense - Flamengo game in July 2023. Fantastic to finally go to the famous Maracanã, where Brazil lost to Uruguay back in 1950 at the World Cup. This stadium is one of the 7 wonders of the world, so I was thrilled to go. Matheus and I had a great talk about football and he guided in a safe and good way, which allowed a family with 3 kids to even join👍 Everything was amazing and glad I finally could tick off that stadium on my list😊🙏

We booked a matchday experience with Homefans to attend the Flamengo-Fortaleza game at the Maracana on 1st July 2023. This was the most entertaining and enjoyable aspect of our two week holiday in Brazil, and I would recommend it to anyone - even those who aren't big soccer fans. Matheus met us as planned at the metro station, near Copacabana, and brought us for drinks to a place where Flamengo fans congregate, about 10 mins walk from the stadium. We were in an upper tier of the stadium, to the side of one of the goals, and the atmosphere was electric - very noisy and excited fans singing, dancing and chanting for the entire game. And the fact that Flamengo won 2-0 was great! Matheus then brought us back on the metro and made sure we got back OK. Overall, a superb service - we felt very much looked after by Matheus, and it was great value at €79 per person. Highly recommended!
