Full description
Nowhere on the planet is the game of football more passionately loved than in Brazil. Get a feel for the importance of football to ordinary Brazilians by taking in a thrilling match.

A match in any of Rio's Stadiums is an exciting experience even for those with only a passing interest in football. The atmosphere in the stadium is alive with fans waving huge silk banners and flags whilst setting off flares and fireworks. Chants and samba drums reverberate through the stadium as vendors climb through the crowds selling cold beers, popcorn, hats, scarfs, and headbands.

Experience the fevered frenzy of Brazilian football and join the thousands of colorful, joyous fans, playing music, singing, and jumping throughout the match. Rio's passion for football makes every game a game to remember.

Matches take place on Wednesdays, Thursdays, Saturdays, and Sundays.
