Brazilian “Superfan” Mauricio showcases his Flamengo soccer team tattoo.


On behalf of Fandom Sports, Brazilian “Superfan” Mauricio traveled to Saint Petersburg and was on site throughout the World Cup activities to showcase his incredible Flamengo soccer team tattoo on the front and back of his torso.  His unrivaled devotion to his club helped spawn the concept of the #WearYourColors campaign.  While in Saint Petersburg, Mauricio watched his beloved Brazil take on Costa Rica in a thrilling 2-0 victory.  During his time in Russia, Mauricio gained international notoriety after taking hundreds of photos with fans from around the world and being interviewed by news outlets from Finland, France, Denmark, Egypt, and Mexico.
