Description

Clube de Regatas do Flamengo (from Dutch vlamingen: Flemish people, English: Flamengo Regatta Club), commonly referred to as Flamengo (Portuguese pronunciation: ), is a Brazilian football club based in Rio de Janeiro. They play in the Campeonato Brasileiro Série A, Brazil's national league, and is one of the only five clubs to have never been relegated to the second division, along with Santos, São Paulo, Internacional and Cruzeiro.

The club was established in 1895, although it did not play its first official game until 1912. Flamengo is one of the most successful clubs in Brazilian football, it has won six Campeonato Brasileiro Série A titles and three Copa do Brasil titles. Due to its low capacity, Flamengo's home stadium, Gávea, is rarely used and the club opts for the government-owned Maracanã, the biggest football stadium in Brazil, with a capacity of 78,838.

Its traditional playing colors are red and black hooped shirts with white shorts and red and black hooped socks. In 1981, Flamengo became the first Carioca team to win the Copa Libertadores, the most prestigious laurel in South American football, the team, subsequently known as the Geração de Ouro, defeated Cobreloa 2–0 in the Estadio Centenario in Montevideo to became champions of America. That same year, Flamengo became world champions after defeating Liverpool 3-0 in Tokyo.

Flamengo is the most popular team in Brazil, with over 39,1 million supporters as of 2010, and was voted by FIFA as one of the most successful football clubs of the 20th century. It is also one of Brazil's richest football clubs in terms of revenue, with an annual revenue of R$212.0 million ($105.6 million/€80.1 million) in 2012, and the second most valuable club in South America, worth over R$855.4 million ($424.4 million/€327.9 million) in 2013. The club has long-standing rivalries with near neighbors Fluminense, Botafogo and Vasco da Gama. There is also an interstate rivalry with Atlético.
