The net's premier website for football in South America is back....
Welcome to footballsouthamerica.com
Since the website was launched in 2004, we have had a rather chequered history...from being featured in none other than 4-4-2 magazine, and then a steady decline owing mainly to lack of time on my part!
But we are back, and better than ever! As most of the leagues in South America take a break over the next few months, I'll be working to get the website back up and running again, with all new features...watch this space!
In the meantime, why not leave a message in our new forum and get chatting!
Happy new year from your webmaster!
Passionate about South American football?
Got an hour or two spare each week?
Then why not join us at footballsouthamerica.com?
If the past few years have taught me anything it's that I can't keep this website up-to-date on my own!
That's why I'm looking for people like me who love South American football and who would like the challenge of maintaining this website.
Anyone is welcome to apply, but people who live in the region would be ideal to give the website the inside knowledge it needs to keep our visitors up-to-date with everything that's going on in the world of South American football,
If you fancy the challenge then get in touch!
For the past few years, the Campeonato Brasileiro has been covered on British television, by Channel 4 - a mainstream, free-to-all channel. The commentary was provided by the excellent Jon Cotterill and Bira Brasil, who brought the most exciting football legaue in the world to the screens aof thousands of homes across the UK. In addition to the Campeonato Brasileiro, Channel 4 also provided excellent coverage of the Copa Libertadores, with one game from each round being screened. This year, however, is entirely different. Channel 4 has surrendered the rights to the Campeonato Brasileiro to Channel 425, a little-known channel which is based on horse-racing. As a result, the Campeonato Brasileiro 2005 is only available to those who are subscribed to Sky Digital television. And at that, there is no evidence of this mystery Channel 425 on Sky's website. FSA has decided to start a campaign on behalf of all those who enjoy Brazilian football in order to persuade Channel 4 to bring back the excitement of South American football to free-to-view television in the UK. Channel 4 have been made aware of this campaign, and you can contribute by signing our petition.
Your support is much appreciated!
