Title: What is the name of this club?
Post by: Pointman on July 16, 2013, 01:41:03 PM
It is the richest football club on its continent

It has its own fleet of aeroplanes

It has a brand new stadium named after it

It is my new favorite team

and its "mascot" is a bird of ill-repute in Trinidad and Tobago(seriously)

What is the full name of this club (and what is the name of the "mascot" for extra points)?? :laugh:

Boss the nickname for Flamengo is 'the vulture,' which I believe in TT we call a corbeaux.

The Urubu (vulture) nickname comes from a match in the 1960s, when a fan brought a live vulture to the stadium, and released it onto the field moments before the game began. The event was popularized in a newspaper cartoon soon after. In the 1940s, Flamengo were the first club to have a live band playing during matches, a tradition which quickly spread throughout the country. Gávea is the Rio neighborhood where the stadium is located and the club is based. Most big matches are played in the Maracana Stadium.

WE HAVE A WINNER!!

INDEED the club is in fact Tout Puissant Mazembe( The Almighty Mazembe) whose mascot is Les Corbeaux which actually means "ravens" and not vulture as we in TnT use the word.

Well done Outsideman!! :beermug: :beermug:
