Bar do Copa
Three days of football on four different types of pitch will determine the country's greatest 16-19 year-old amateur team in the Battle of the Courts this weekend. Seven aside (Friday), hard court (Saturday) and sand (Sunday) are the disciplines (the grass games are to be played on Wednesday in Teresopolis' Granja Comary complex), all set up on Copacabana Beach and supplemented by MC Battles, DJs and a live performance from Seu Jorge. The hotly-contested finals will take place each day at 5pm, with a round table discussion featuring members of the Brazilian national squad on Sunday at 4.30pm. Expect the home support for Rio de Janeiro FC and Caxinguêle to be particularly vocal.
