CBF releases calendar for the 2013 season

I don’t know if you ever noticed but here in Brazil, we don’t follow the same calendar like in Europe. In fact, only a few South American countries (IIRC Argentina and Uruguay) do it, probably due to their strong European links through their history as well as the similar climate status (yes, it does make a difference.

I might not be the brightest, but I can certainly see the obvious and point out what’s right and what’s wrong.

Latin American football, and most specifically the Brazilian one, doesn’t get much attention from the outside media unless the coverage is about a mega-star yet to reach its peak (e.g. Neymar, Lucas), the Brazilian national squad and sometimes the league title. It’s pretty unfortunate, considering the potential the championship and the clubs have following Brazil’s economic tendencies.

I bet people will hear more about it, and is my “mission” to bring you some news. I can’t guarantee any kind of regularity, as I am between an internship and started my graduation in Economics last year. But as long as I have a space to expose my ideas and to spread the most important news of Brazilian football, I’ll be fine. And I hope you will be, too.

That’s it. Welcome!

And “obrigado”!
