Fluminense FC Tryouts

Fluminense Football Club, known simply as Fluminense, is a Brazilian sports club based in the neighbourhood of Laranjeiras, in the city of Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. The club competes in the Campeonato Brasileiro Série A, the top flight of Brazilian football.

Fluminense FC Youth Development System

The Fluminense base aims to provide quality athletes for the professional squad. Few clubs in Brazil use cut jewelry so expressively at home. Tricolor has a formation that starts in futsal or in official schools (Projeto Guerreirinhos) and passes through Xerém, with all the support to develop athletes in the best way. Flu was the first large club in Rio de Janeiro to hold the CBF Training Club Certificate.

CTVL – Vale das Laranjeiras Training Center – is located in Xerém, in the municipality of Duque de Caxias-RJ. The tricolor base CT has an area of ​​over 120 thousand m². The Xerém Moleques have, in all, seven fields, one of artificial grass, gym, dormitory for 90 athletes, psychology room, nutrition, physiology department, auditorium, cafeteria, methodology room, performance room and necessary structure to develop athletes’ soccer in the best possible way.

Xerém follows the same training methodology for all categories. However, the work is different for each age group, respecting the physical, mental and technical development of each Moleque de Xerém. The age groups are:

– Under-19
– Under-17
– Under-16
– Under-15
– Under-14
– Under-13
– Under-12
– Under-11

Fluminense FC Academy Trials/Recruitment:

The capture of athletes from Xerém is a reference, with a group of professional scout, which has regionalized evaluators, to analyze players throughout Brazil and in the main centers of Latin America. Players are captured after a series of studies and monitoring of games. The work is fully integrated with the main team. The athletes arrive at the club and undergo new evaluations by the technical coordinators, the technical commissions and an evaluation committee, before being incorporated into the rosters.

Fluminense has evaluators who have the function of observing athletes in different locations. However, the selection of athletes for the basic divisions is carried out in several other ways. One is through friendly matches and participation in tournaments with teams from different locations, in which coaches from Fluminense teams select the athletes who are most interested. Another way is through the selection process at the Vale das Laranjeiras Training Center itself, with athletes wishing to join the base divisions of Fluminense. In addition to external evaluations in official and unofficial tournaments across Brazil.


Fluminense is one of the few clubs in Brazil that have futsal fully focused on training players for field football. The sport, a breadbasket for soccer players all over the world, is directly linked to the board of Xerém and has great integration with athletes and professionals from both areas. Many athletes who shone and shine in the club’s main team arrived at Tricolor through futsal. Currently, more than 100 boys from futsal develop their talents at CT Vale das Laranjeiras, in Xerém.

Little warriors:

One of the greatest differentials of Fluminense in its system for attracting young players is the Guerreirinhos project. It allows soccer schools with the club’s game philosophy and training methodology to be opened anywhere in Brazil, or abroad, as long as, of course, they can fulfill the requirements to become a franchise. There are already more than 30 athletes from the schools currently training in Xerém. The schools are often visited by Tricolor professionals. In them, in addition to the quality required to receive the club’s certificate, Fluminense’s training methodology is charged.

Contrary to what happens in most clubs, the official schools are not products of Fluminense’s marketing. They are part of the Xerém fundraising system and help bring great players to Xerém. The Guerreirinhos project (official schools) represents much more than a school that teaches football to children. For the proven benefit that sport brings to young people, not only physical, but in the disciplinary part, Fluminense demonstrates its noble interest in solidifying itself more and more as an institution that is committed to society.

A full list of Little warriors schools is listed at the bottom of this page.


Fluminense welcomes teams and schools to hold friendlies on the premises of Xerém. This activity is a relevant part of the development process of athletes from the club’s base divisions.

Therefore, if there is interest in making friendlies at CTVL against Fluminense’s base teams, contact the Xerém Coordination: Edgard Maba, Decio Oliveira, Raphael Munhoz and Raphael Mello. Telephone: (21) 2679-4634.

Fluminense is also interested in making friendlies outside CTVL. For this, Tricolor requires that the interested party provide the transportation of the team, food and accommodation, if necessary.


Fluminense is one of the Brazilian clubs that most reveals quality players for the main team and for the market. Xerém’s Moleques undergo a complete formation that starts in futsal, or in the official schools (Projeto Guerreirinhos) and continues in Xerém.


In Xerém, the player finds a specific CT for the base. There are a total of seven fields, one of which is artificial grass, a gym, a dormitory for 90 athletes and all the necessary structure to develop the Xerém Moleques spread over more than 120 thousand m² of used area. Tricolor has its own game philosophy and training methodology for all categories.

Check out some of the main players revealed by Xerém in recent years and who currently defend other clubs: Evanilson, Ibañez, Wendel, Pedro, Ayrton Lucas, Gerson, Douglas, Kenedy, Fabinho, Tiago Volpi, Marcelo, Thiago Silva, Carlos Alberto

Fluminense FC History

On July 21, 1902, the club was established, and Oscar Cox was the first person to be chosen to the position of president. Since then, Fluminense have won the title of national champions on four separate occasions, most recently in the 2012 Campeonato Brasileiro Série A. In addition, the team has triumphed in the 2007 Copa do Brasil, the 1999 Campeonato Brasileiro Série C, and the 1952 edition of the Copa Rio (or Copa Rio Internacional).

Its biggest performances on the international stage were a second-place finish at the Copa Libertadores in 2008 and a second-place finish at the Copa Sudamericana in 2009. The Olympic Cup is presented annually by the International Olympic Committee to an institution or association that has a record of merit and integrity in actively developing the Olympic Movement. In 1949, the Olympic Cup was presented to the football club Fluminense, making it the first football club in history to receive the honor.

People who are native to the Brazilian state of Rio de Janeiro are referred to by the demonym fluminense. Although football was the club’s initial focus, it has since evolved into an umbrella organization that supports other teams competing in over 16 different sports.

Since 1920, Fluminense’s traditional home uniform has been a set of vertically striped shirts in garnet, white, and green, white shorts, and white socks. This ensemble has been worn by the team at their home stadium. Currently, Umbro is the maker of the kits.

The club has a long-standing rivalry with a number of other teams, the most notable of which is with Flamengo (known as the Clássico Fla-Flu), as well as with Botafogo (known as the Clássico Vovô), and Vasco da Gama (known as the Clássico dos Gigantes).

The club is considered to be the “birthplace” of the Brazilian national football team, as it was there that the “canarinhos” competed in their very first game, scored their very first goal, and won their very first trophy. When compared to all other Brazilian teams, it has sent the fifth-most players to compete for the national team.


Estádio do Maracanã, widely known as Estádio Maracanã, Maracanã or just Maraca is a stadium in Rio de Janeiro. The stadium is located within a complex that also houses an arena known as Maracanzinho, which translates to “The Little Maracan” in Portuguese.

The name of the arena was given to the facility. The stadium is currently operated by the football clubs Flamengo and Fluminense, despite the fact that it is owned by the state government of Rio de Janeiro. It is situated in the Maracan district, which gets its name from the Rio Maracan, a river in Rio de Janeiro that has since been channelized.

The stadium first opened its doors in 1950 in preparation for the FIFA World Cup, which was won by Uruguay over Brazil by a score of 2–1 in front of 199,854 fans on July 16, 1950. The stadium was opened in 1950. The stadium has hosted events with attendances of 150,000 people or more on 26 separate times, the most recent of which was on May 29, 1983, when 155,253 people watched Flamengo defeat Santos by a score of 3–0.

There have been 284 events that drew crowds of more than 100,000 people to the stadium. However, over the course of its history, terraced sections have been replaced with seated sections, and following the renovation for the 2014 FIFA World Cup, its original capacity has been reduced to the current number of 78,838 spectators, but it still holds the title of being Brazil’s largest stadium. The majority of the games played at the stadium are competitions between the top football clubs in Rio de Janeiro, such as Flamengo, Fluminense, Botafogo, and Vasco da Gama. In addition, it has been the site of a variety of sporting events and concerts over the years.


The current shield of Fluminense was first used in 1905, the same year that the new uniform with three colors made its debut. You can see the previous version of the shield below. The shield ended up having several revisions throughout the years in try to modernize it, which resulted in the shield losing some of its original design.
