Sports In Brazil

There is no doubt about what the main sport in Brazil is. Soccer (futebol) is king in Brazil. You see people playing everywhere, and they are very passionate about their favorite team. You always know when a pro game is going on, because there is alot of fireworks & noise. Santos FC is the team in our city, and they are having a very good year so far.

Other sports that are popular are basketball, volleyball and Formula 1 racing. On the beach in Santos you also see people playing tennis, a version of volleyball where they can't use their hands, and some others. On Brazilian tv you can see soccer from all over the world, and you can also find some NFL football, baseball, and basketball on cable. We have to watch college football (my personal favorite) and college basketball on the internet.
