Title: Soillse – Spors is Grinneas / Footballers and Beauty Queens

Taking place in the middle of the world's largest rainforest, the Peladão is a unique event that involves thousands of footballers and hundreds of beauty queens.

Football and women are the twin obsessions of Brazilian culture and the Peladão shows how the two come together. The football tournament doubles up as another competition: each team chooses its beauty queen. And the Miss Football contest can have a direct influence on the matches.
