What’s A Superclásico? Football Rivalries In Latin America

I’ve been working on a monthly column for Remezcla titled Your Guide to Clásicos De Fútbol Rivalries. Since February, I’ve been writing about the rivalry between a pair of teams in Latin America (with one exception for the FC Barcelona/Real Madrid F.C. rivalry in Spain) and delve into their history, crazy fans and more.

The archive of stories can be found HERE and so far include:

  1. FC Barcelona vs. Real Madrid F.C. (Spain)
  2. Atlético Independiente vs. Racing Club De Avellaneda (Argentina)
  3. Chivas vs. América (Mexico)
  4. Flamengo vs. Fluminense a.k.a. Fla-Flu (Brazil)
  5. Nacional vs. Peñarol (Uruguay)
  6. Boca Juniors vs. River Plate (Argentina)

I still have PLENTY of more rivalries to write about. My next column will focus on a rivalry from Costa Rica in anticipation of this month’s CONCACAF Champions League match between LA Galaxy and C.S. Cartaginés in L.A.
