Culture[edit | edit source]

Brazil[edit | edit source]

More than anywhere else in the world, football is the number 1 sport in Brazil!

It punctuates the life of the inhabitants, whether they come from poor neighborhoods or from the upper classes, it governs their way of life, it maintains their pride on both sides of the planet, it represents the deification of the athlete who can, thanks to his exceptional talent, bring indescribable joy to his supporters, or unfathomable pain. Without risking caricature, we can say that Brazil IS football.

Portugal[edit | edit source]

Football, futebol in Portuguese, is lived as a real religion in Portugal. With its long and rich history, football has established itself as the most popular sport among the Portuguese, by far dethroning all other sporting activities.

In Portugal, football is watched, lived and shouted throughout the year. Between the best players in the world and the most famous clubs in the country, we take you to the heart of the culture and history of Portuguese football.
