New for 2022! Homefans are pleased to offer a 5 day Ultimate Brazil – Football Adventure in Rio de Janeiro. This trip includes 3 matches in Rio de Janeiro led by our fantastic network of local hosts who will ensure an authentic experience and ensure you see the best Rio has to offer. 

This trip is the perfect opportunity for those, who only have limited time, but want to make see the very best of Rio and delve into the Brazilian football culture . The truth is that Brazilian football fans care far more about their favourite clubs than the national team. This is even more apparent in Rio de Janeiro, who host with Botafogo, Flamengo, Fluminense, & Vasco some of the top clubs in Brazil. We take advantage of the fact that Rio de Janeiro has these fantastic teams and pick weekends when at least 3 play at home, meaning you can attend 3 matches on a 4 night trip.

Of course, for many Rio de Janeiro will be a once-in-a-lifetime destination and as such we’ll make sure you see all the hightlights.  We will include a sightseeing tour which will cover Copacabana Beach, Christ the Redeemer and more.  With accommodation and transfers also included this trip really does take care of everything leaving you free to simply arrive and enjoy!

Ultimate Brazil:  Now on sale!

Fixtures for the 2022 season are announced and Homefans are pleased to announce there will be 6 departures of this 5 day Ultimate Brazil in 2022.

For the rest of the day, you can take it easy and recover from your long travels. At night, if there is interest, we will organize a steak, beer and wine welcome dinner!

Day 2/3 Matchday Experiences
We will pick the best match based on fixtures but regardless of the team we will offer a full match day experience (sometimes 2 in one day!). Before the match you will meet with a local fan who will accompany you to an area close to the stadium to experience all the pre-match build up with the home supporters. From there head to the stadium and take your seats for another remarkable spectacle.
Day 4. Rio Sightseeing
Note: In some cases matches get postponed until Monday, therefore it is possible that the 3rd match will be on Monday.

Otherwise we will dedicate some time to sightseeing today. One of our local hosts will lead you on a sightseeing tour to see the best of Rio de Janeiro including Copacabana beach and Christ the Redeemer

FAQs

Will the Stadiums be open in 2022? At what capacity?

Rio’s stadiums are open and at 100% capacity.  We cannot guarantee that restrictions will not return but we will keep all customers up to date on any developments.

Will I have to demonstrate I am vaccinated? Or show a negative test?

You will need to provide a negative PCR test to enter Brazil. While the restrictions may ease we advise all customers looking to travel to Argentina to be fully vaccinated against COVID-19.

How many people will be on the tour?

The maximum number of people the host will allow is stated above. However this number may not always be met and it may even be possible that your party is on the tour on your own. 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!

What happens if COVID-19 means I cannot travel?

Your deposit can be transferred to a later date (with no time limit), transferred to another tour, or even given to a friend. This flexibility also applies if you decide to cancel for any reason (as long as you give us 45 days notice)

Do I have to pay the full amount when I book?

No, you can secure your place with a deposit of just 30%, then pay the balance at least 4 weeks before your trip date

Can I change the included matches?

The included matches are final in order to keep the group together.  However where the itinerary has spare time and there are matches that could be added on we will be only too happy to help you with tickets.

Where in the stadium will we be sitting?

If we know where you will be sitting we always mention this is in the inclusions section.

Unfortunately we are not always able to tell you that at the time of booking, however our destination managers work tirelessly to make sure you get the best seats. We always aim for the long side of the home supporters section.

Can you cater to dietary needs or requirements?

Our local hosts will do everything they can to cater to travellers’ needs. It’s a good idea to share your requirements at the time of booking so that our host is able to make the required preparations

Will I have to share a room?

In order to keep the costs low we always offer prices based on 2 sharing. If you make a booking for an odd number of people you or another member of your party may be paired with another traveller of the same sex. If you wish you may pay a supplement for a guaranteed single room (this is available under extras in the booking flow).

Football with Matheus in Rio = Saudade guaranteed

Thanks to Homefans, I experienced the best month of my life in Brazil. A truly life-changing experience. Rio de Janeiro is a must for every genuine football lover with four clubs in three different stadiums. Besides that, Rio has it all. The famous beaches of Copacabana and Ipanema, a rain forest and one of the seven wonders of the world (Christ the Redeemer). If you are looking for someone with a great sense of humor, who can fully introduce you to Brazilian football culture, knows a lot about the history of the country and can show you all hotspots in the city -> Matheus is your man! In Matheus, I have a friend for the rest of my life! 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!

Matheus is the best!

Matheus was my guide for à la carte Flamengo, Fluminense, and Vasco da Gama matches while I was in Rio in October 2019. He is a fantastic local guide who truly loves and appreciates football and its ability to bring together people from all over the world. I cannot recommend him more highly!

Amazing Experience

I went on the Brazil trip back in 2018, and watched four matches in Rio and Sao Paulo, along with countless other experiences, like stadium tours, city walks, beach days and restaurant and bar hopping. It was fantastic, I learned so much about Brazilian culture and about the history and importance of each club. Pedro, our local host, was incredible, and so was Matheus, who helped us on the Fla-Flu day. Because of this trip I'd later become local host in Porto, hoping to provide great experiences to others as I received here. 5* experience!
