Rio de Janeiro Sports & Outdoors: 70 reviews and 85 photos
Botafogo is one of the 4 big football clubs in Rio.
It comes from the suburb of the same name and was originally started as a rowing club, but it was soon football that took over.
these days it´s the little brother compared to the other Rio clubs and the fans are often people who like to distinguish themselves as being a little different, so they have many artists and intellectuals among their fans.
The biggest player Botafogo ever produced was ironicaly Garrincha who mabye had the biggest talent and the smallest brain ever in football.
he never played for any other club and is today an absolute legend because of his talent and because of his amazing story of the cripple who became the best football player in the world.
