We bring fans from all around the world together who seek to experience football off the beaten path. You will share the experience of a lifetime in Rio de Janeiro and São Paulo alongside a group of like-minded fans who hold a wealth of experience far deeper than just watching their local team.

With the beautiful landscape, in Rio de Janeiro, you will also go to two derbies, have some nice and local sightseeing, stadium tour and a lot more!
Interview with our trip leader Pedro:
Why should people visit Brazil, and in particular Rio and Sao Paulo?
Brazil is the best place to spend your vacations! My beloved and home country has the most beautiful beaches, perfect weather, amazing and cheap food, parties with the most beautiful people on earth, people are always smiling and happy, we go to football matches wearing flip-flops and we just love our landscape.
Sao Paulo is my home town and the biggest city in Latin America. We have the best restaurants, bars and nightlife in the whole country. We never sleep. It is a 24/7 city, and you can do everything you like. Then there is football. Oh my God, home of Corinthians and their 30 million supporters, Palmeiras and its academy, Sao Paulo and Santos, former Pelé’s team. Beach? Just around the corner.
Rio de Janeiro is the beautiful city. Over there, we love to relax drinking caipirinhas at the beach, playing Footvolley in our magical beaches, eat a proper steak, go to parties in the jungle, visit Christ the redeemer and the amazing landscape. Samba? All night long!
What makes the Copa America so special?
Copa América is like the Euro’s for South Americans. But you add a LOT of flavor, spices from the latin people. Here is where Brazilians, Argentinians, Chileans, Uruguayans and many others unite and we have a great party in the streets of Rio de Janeiro! You have the opportunity to see very intense football, with a lot of skills from the players and party in the stands! This is the best atmosphere ever! And guess what? Wearing the whole day your pair of shorts and flip-flops!
What can the travellers expect from the trip?
Both Copa América Experience and Ultimate Brazil you can expect great football combined with sunny days, a lot of relaxing and sightseeing. We will attend several matches and stadium tours, and we’ll go to the best beaches, soak up the Brazilian atmosphere, visit the Christ statue, Sugar Loaf, bars, local parties and many more!
What’s the difference between the Brazilian atmosphere and the European atmosphere?
European football is all about tactic and physical imposition, as well as great players. In Brazil we have the best raw talents. You will be able to watch them all before they leave for millions to Europe. The atmosphere in the stands? Forget it, nothing beats us. We drink cold beer inside the stadium, we have the biggest flags, our pre-match is a combination of samba and beers in sunny days. Sitting is not allowed. And we never stop singing.
What makes this trip so great besides the football?
Besides the football we have so many other great activities to do. For example, we’ll eat the best steaks, go to parties in the jungle, sailing in the lagoon and paragliding. These trips are not only about football, you’re really on a vacation. A vacation you’ll never forget.
