Overview

Brazil has always been a nation that breathes football. Although people often point to the success of the national team as the greatest indication for the country’s undying love for the sport, it also boasts a magnificent domestic league complete with several local derbies that rage with passion and intensity.

The city’s many favelas underline large social problems in Brazil, but they form fertile ground for excellent players. No wonder then, that this city has many football venues. A game at the Maracanã stadium of Flamengo or Fluminense is something that has to be on your wishlist if you are going to travel such a distance, but there is more! Botafogo and Vasco da Gama are just two other teams within the city limits, both playing at stadiums where the atmosphere can really flourish on a good day.

Expect days spent in stadiums, playing footvolley with locals at the Copacabana, sunbathing beneath swaying palms, sipping caipirinhas or beers at sunset and embracing the rhythms of samba. With a plethora of open-air cafes and bars, in Rio samba beats that float through the streets. And as for the football; stadiums are adorned with oceans of colourful shirts, with thousands of fans screaming for their beloved heroes and the goals are flowing, the beautiful game is  at its most stunning in Rio. Looking for an incredible football adventure in paradise? This is it.

Most people will only visit South America once in their lives, therefore we make sure it will be your best football experience ever. We bring together fans from all around the world who seek to experience football off the beaten path. You will share the experience of a lifetime in Rio de Janeiro alongside a group of like-minded fans who hold a wealth of experience far deeper than just watching their local team.

Welcome to the most epic football experience of your life – Welcome to Rio de Janeiro!

Itinerary

Day 1 - Welcome to Rio de Janeiro
Today is gathering day, people from all over the world will arrive today at different times. Regardless of that, we have arranged an airport transfer for all of you. A driver's assistant will be outside the customs area with a sign with your names.

If you arrive in the afternoon, check-in and room will be ready. For arrivals in the morning, we will do our best to accommodate you, but please bear in mind will be upon availability. 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!
