You'll hear all about Brazil's victories and defeats, and kids can have their free kick game on the field. Call in advance as groups are limited to 13 people.

  • What an amazing football stadium and it was great to watch Flamenco play in a cup tie. What a great atmosphere and the stadium was not even at full capacity! One can only imagine what a full stadium would feel like ... Electrifying I would think. Well worth a visit of in Rio De Janeiro!
  • A fantastic place to visit. We have been in a museum and on tour, but nothing compares with attending a live match. Be sure to buy a ticket online or in advance, buy a local team shirt and cheer with all other fans. The crowd is lovely, they helped us buy tickets, understand how to buy drinks. The atmosphere is incredible, you are cheering with more than 60k people for 90 minutes of a match.
