Fluminense Soccer Club

This is the training field at Fluminense Soccer Club, founded in the early 20th century, located in the neighborhood of Laranjeiras. Fluminense is one of the major soccer clubs of my city, it has won many championships, and it is very popular among the young of the south side portion of Rio.
The term "Fluminense" can also be used as a term for natives of the state of Rio de Janeiro (as Aline mentioned earlier, "Cariocas" are those born in the city of Rio - both of us, for example :))
On the other pictures, a look at their trophies, from previous days of glory, and two pictures at Fluminense ballroom - a beautiful stainglass wall
