Playing football in Rio? Jogar futebol?
Posted March 12th, 2010 - 12:15 am by from London, England (Permalink)
I have just come from Bogota in Colombia where there was a weekly football group. About 20 colombians and travellers used to meet and play for a couple of hours, all organised through CS. I can't seem to find anything like this in Rio. Can someone tell me if it exists, or are there any people interested in creating a football group?

Acabo de chegar de Bogotá, na Colômbia, onde havia um grupo de futebol semanal. Cerca de 20 colombianos e viajantes usado para encontrar e jogar por um par de horas, todos organizados através CS. Eu não consigo achar nada parecido no Rio de Janeiro. Alguém pode me dizer se existe, ou há pessoas interessadas em criar um grupo de futebol?

Hi Mark,

You still playing football here? I'm in Rio for 3 months and would love to find somewhere to play whilst i'm here.

Let me know,

Cheers

Hi James (and others)

The original game we joined was run by a hostel. They now appear to have switched it to a Friday and are charging.

Instead I suggest we get a few of us together and play this Sunday at 6,30pm - after the World Cup games. When the World Cup is over we can switch to an earlier time slot.

So who is up for beach football this Sunday at 6,30pm?

The venue would be Ipanema beach, far end, just before the canal and Leblon.

James,

I see you have joined our World Cup group so we'll see you tomorrow for the England game anyway where you can also meet some of the other guys.

Mark

Hi Mark,

Yep I'm definately up for that, Sunday is good for me.

We should also do a game on astro-turf (I've played at a good place in leblon), possibly England Vs Brazil?

I'm watching the game at my flat tomorrow with some friends. I went to the Lord Jim for the first two and we all know what happened so I'm trying a different approach this time! If all goes well I'll definately come down to Waxy's for a beer after!

I am interested in a weekly game, but this Sunday is England Germany. I think I will have had one too many beers by 6 :30pm to play anything that could pass for football. Perhaps another day?

Havendo algum grupo ou pelada ocasional, tou dentro.

If there's a group or an occasional game, I'm in!

Hi! I just signed up for CS, and I would really like to play some football here in Rio. Is anyone else interested in making a group for it? Would be fun. There are so many public football fields here and we don't necessarily need to be a full team to have a go at it.

Hey guys, just played beach footy with people from Che lagarto hostel Ipanema. They play every Sunday at 4pm on the beach nearest to the hostel - Rua Paul Redfern. It's just about the last stretch of beach in Ipanema before it becomes Leblon - near the big mound of sand next to the canal.

Come along next time!!!

Ok, cool. I know the place. I'll be there next Sunday at 4pm. Cheers.

hey guys. any chance of creating an organized weekly futbol game somewhere in the city? (not on sand, but on the grass)
I am new here, and don´t know if it already happens..

we could meet for a beer and set it up. Search for nice/cheap places, spread the infos here in some CS communities and make it happen.

We used to have two big groups playing in Barcelona., and always new players joining from week to week. pretty cool games

cheers!

Hey Tito!

I think it would be a great idea to start a group for it. We are a 3-5 guys wanting to play football here in Rio, but we struggle to find enough players for a full game.

You should join some of us to see the England game on wednesday, and then we can arrange something. Check the "England fans for the World Cup" group on CS for more info.

Cheers!

valeu Gabriela, mas o esquema do Jordan nao parece ser algo regular, como manda o apetite dos que realmente gostam de praticar a coisa frequentemente. eu estou instigando a turma a criarmos uma jogatina semanal e eteeeeeernaa.. rsrsrs

mas é uma boa participar do esquema que citou, parece bacana.
tu bate uma bola? em barsa tinhamos cada garota que jogava melhor que muitos carinhas lah.
valeuuu

I'm all about it, just arrived in Rio a month ago and all I can seem to find is beach futbol. Would love to get into a weekly pickup game if you've found anything.

Hope you're enjoying your journey thus far...
