Things to do in Rio de Janeiro

Looking for something fun to do in Rio? Homefans tours are run by sports fans, for sports fans – giving you a deeper insight into the Rio de Janeiro passion for football.

Rio de Janeiro

There is perhaps no city in the world quite so fanatic about football as Rio.  The city boasts 4 clubs, all fierce rivals meaning there are derbies aplenty.  But no matter who the opponent the local fans always create a fiesta atmosphere when their team are playing.

Our Homefans Rio football tours will help you discover the passion this city has for the beautiful game.  We can offer matchday experiences for the 4 clubs as well as stadium tours.  Plus football can be combined with the other major highlights of Rio including Copacabana and Christ the Redeemer.

All tours on Homefans are led by local hosts who are both passionate supporters of their clubs and ambassadors for their city.  They cannot wait to welcome you to Rio!

Went to: Vasco de Gama Stadium Tour

What a amazing experience this is.  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.

Went to: Flamengo Matchday Experience

This was the best futbol/soccer game I have been to! The stadium is legendary. The team and fans are the most authentic. Our guides and friends were very cool, fun to hang out with, and helpful. They even sent us a picture of when we could be seen in the crowd. I felt very lucky to get to experience it. I’ve seen matches in Germany, and Argentina and Brazil was my favorite and so is the Jersey I bought when we were chanting around fireworks outside the stadium.


Joined: Ultimate Brazil

A truly life-changing experience. Rio de Janeiro is a must for every genuine football lover with four clubs in three different stadiums. If you are looking for someone with a great sense of humor, who can fully introduce you to Brazilian football culture, Matheus is your man! To conclude, I usually never write reviews, but for Homefans and Matheus I wanted to make an exception. Words cannot express how much I can recommend this trip!
