Ahead of the Copa America this year, Nike is taking us behind the soccer cultures of some of Latin America’s most passionate soccer cities. And there is no country as passionate or as decorated as Brazil, or its biggest city — Rio de Janeiro. Home to four of the country’s biggest teams and some of the sport’s most storied milestones, the connection between soccer and Brazilians need no explanation. However, the city takes non-competitive soccer as seriously as its competitive aspect, making for a soccer culture rooted and conducive to creative flair to the game. Check out the entire series over at Nike.
