From remote African villages, where the balls are made from old socks or 
pilfered rubber, to the terraces of top European teams, where the players are 
billionaire brands, via the favelas of Brazil and the casinos of Vietnam, 
this issue travels the globe to explore our sometimes troubled relationship 
with the 'beautiful game' and the business behind it.

As football fans from across the world head to Brazil, we meet some of the 
locals who will be hosting them – whether in 5* hotels or Rio’s famed favelas - 
and ask what the World Cup means to them.


Mariana Barbosa de Oliveira is 25 years old and married with a child. 
For the past two years, she has run a souvenir shop in the favela Santa Marta 
with her mother, Maria Elena.

“Sometimes my husband gets angry with me for making more money than 
he does working in two jobs. But tourism has grown in the favela and I make 
an average of $874 per month,” she says.

Oliveira wants to take advantage of the increase in the number of tourists 
and is willing to rent her own house out during the event. 
She is charging $44 per person per day, but she still hasn’t closed a deal.

In case you hadn't noticed from the explosion of replica shirts, 
late-night pubs and television channels dominated by constant football – 
it's the World Cup right now. And that means people across the globe are 
tuning in, even in the jungle. Our photographers are all over the world 
on football's frontline for our Fever Pitch project, documenting the obsession 
and the passion that surrounds this tournament.

Dazed photographer Pedro Bayeux embarked on a journey an hour out 
of Manaus to spend some time with the Tatuyos, a tribe who live deep in 
the Amazon rainforest:

"We left Manaus on game day on a fisherman's boat that took us down 
the Amazon. It was a beautifully sunny day and all along the river 
the houseboats were decorated with Brazilian flags, with incredible 
nature all around me. 
The Tatuyos are a tribe that live on the left bank of the Rio Negro, 
otherwise known as the Black River. It took about an hour to get 
to their settlement from the port in Manaus.

On arriving, the chief Pinó Kaçique became my host – him and his tribe 
performed a series of dances to make me feel welcome. 
The tribe are traditionally patriarchal – the men hunt snakes and crocodiles 
to eat and the women cook the catches inside their houses made by trees 
that they've felled themselves. What's strange about the tribe is that 
they are a mixture of a lot of different ethnicities – while most tribes only 
marry someone from their own tribe, the Tatuyos are encouraged 
to marry from outside.

Ten minutes before the game, they started a generator to power a single 
television in their village and passed round snacks while they watched – 
huge fried ants! All of them were so anxious to see the game and you could 
           see the tension in their eyes as kick off time approached. One member 
of the tribe said to me during the match: 'I am very moved by the World Cup, 
it's very near here in Manaus, Amazonas. We're used to seeing it in 
other countries, but now there is a lot of emotion that we can feel.'

Throughout the game they played instruments if they became nervous 
at what was happening on the screen. Afterwards they went outside 
to play their own match – men and women all played together, 
with a child as referee! It was beautiful."

From former chicken coops to disused train carriages and homeless shelters, 
we meet some of those who make their homes on the margins of society.


São Paulo.
Vila Flávia, São Mateus Neighborhood.
Words and photos by Pedro Bayeux.


Vila Flavia, in Sao Paulo, is virtually invisible. Search for it on Google Maps 
and you will find an avenue without houses or the small, dirty river that runs 
through it. But, in reality, it is home to around 3.000 people.
Residents began moving in in 1967 and now they are trying to establish 
Vila Flavia's reputation as a "slum with art". each of its streets bear 
the mark of different artists.

My name is Pedro Bayeux, a journalist and filmmaker living in São Paulo since I was 3 days old.

When you wake up and see the headline of the biggest newspaper from São Paulo announcing that the police needs to be tougher with “vandalism” – and the editorial in the same newspaper calls for urgent use of force “to put an end to it”, you feel a need to go to the streets and see through your own camera what’s really happening. To be honest, I was in doubt if I should take my equipment just to make a documentary about the situation or to use it as a weapon against police violence.

I live one block away from Paulista Avenue, the cliché of the “economic heart of the country”. The last protest ended almost in front of my door, with rumours of “chaos”. So, on Thursday night, one hour after the beginning of the fourth act against the bus fare, I took my way downtown, the meeting point of the manifestation. The latest news about the scenario was surreal: police was arresting people and journalists carrying vinegar. Sounded more like a script from “Monty Python” that started in the city; or Terry Gilliam’s “Brazil, the movie”, who knows.

On every street corner, bars were full of curious people watching TVs, the noise from the helicopters was the loud soundtrack and, when I was almost there, the first tear gas bombs were the hosts. After that, the night became the simulacrum of a game. My avatar’s mission: to shoot videos and think of a plan for how to get home, while trying to understand what was going on. All the streets were closed. It was a smog labyrinth.

I tried to turn left, to Augusta Street, a cultural/bohemian street: barricades of fire spread while bombs were coming from both sides. People running. Guy Fawkes masks. Drivers frightened inside cars. Rubber bullets being shot with no discernment. It was like Oxford Street being attacked by Military Police under acid effects, led by Dr. Strangelove. A photographer was blinded with a shot that night. That was a turning point day.

The feedback was ironic: with several journalists and non-activists injured, mass media started changing their speeches. The complexity showed, in a Brazilian context, what Luther Blisset called Psychic War. Political and police abuse became more popular than Neymar. Four days later, more than 100,000 people were marching all over the city. A mix of desires this time and more conflict, now in front of the government palace. Fire, teargas, flowers, Brazilian flags. It could be the plot of “The Warriors”: “in a future, dystopian São Paulo, turf gangs and cops rule the streets”.

Protests spread throughout the country, not only against the bus fare, but against FIFA, corruption, property speculation, for better education, health, transport, from focused to generic claims. Left and right-wings, “no-wings”, students, anarco’s, bizarre Nazi’s, posh people, handlers, social movements, families, lions, hyenas, clowns – they took over the streets. A circus, a carnival of dissatisfaction. Not only against the government, as some want to stigmatize, but against an entire reasoning. The conservatives still try to manipulate and a kind of pos-media appears to be an option. The middle class felt the police abuse that poor people have been feeling for a long time here. Hard to understand the anthropology behind, but with one conclusion: after these days, everyone dropped their masks.
