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.
