Brazil’s love and passion for football is known to the world and that is what The Football Museum in Sao Paulo commemorates. It is aptly situated beneath the seating area of Estádio do Pacaembu – the stadium where Brazil played one of its only home World Cup games. While the walls gloriously display Brazil’s historic encounters with soccer, they also speak of how the country’s culture revolves around this sport. The galleries will walk you through a euphoria shared by all soccer fans for the ball, the dribbling and the goal. Merely the museum’s aura can turn a non-football buff into one.
At the entrance is a room full of nostalgia – adorned with football posters belonging to various decades. The image gallery illustrates the highs and lows of the Brazilian national team and also has pictures of some of the country’s football Gods. Stories on the walls also show how this elitist sport, introduced by the British in the 19th century, got infused into the very blood of Brazilians. Many multimedia installations such as touchscreen panels and holographic displays show the history in a modern way.
