What is the name of football in Brazil?

Soccer in Brazil

When you think of Brazil, you automatically think of carnival, samba dancing, Latin American beauties and - how could it be otherwise - the art of Brazilian football.

It is well known that the English invented the most popular sport in the world, but the Brazilians have certainly brought it to perfection.

A little digression into the history of Brazilian football will shed more light on this. In addition, the five world championship titles of the largest South American country speak for themselves.

And with the soccer World Cup in their own country, the soccer-mad Brazilians naturally hoped for the trophy for the sixth time. 12 new stadiums were created especially for the major event in summer 2014, which will either continue to be used in Brazilian league football or function as a multi-purpose hall.

In any case, it cannot be denied that for many Brazilians football is the most beautiful thing in the world, which reaches its stormy climax every four years during the football World Cup.

Then the whole country is shut down like a general strike. Many factory owners set up televisions to minimize lost work time. But most of the time most companies close during the games.
