Went to: Flamengo vs Fluminense

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!

Went to: Flamengo vs América Mineiro

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

Went to: Flamengo vs Fluminense

I was lucky enough to witness the Rio Derby between Flamego and Fluminense, words cannot describe the feeling of being in the maracana indulging into this atmosphere! Was just unbelievable all round. Matheus was a Legend, well organised and offered great depth and knowledge whilst sharing my passion of football! 11/10 would recommend this experience. the intensity of the crowd was unbelievable and just made me fall in love with Brazil and Brazilian football even more! Memories for a lifetime!
