Brasfoot, a game in which the user is the coach of a football team and simulates club management, was one of the biggest successes, and one of the forerunners of this type of franchise in Brazil. Over the years, other titles such as Championship Manager, and the most well-known and acclaimed today, Football Manager, have taken the position of the most popular manager simulation game in the world.
However, the good old Brasfoot remains in the hearts of players in Brazil, and from time to time, internet users who love the game get together to discuss strategies, tactics and saves with stories and more stories of signings and titles.
In the free version of the game, the user had the option of choosing between different options of teams from lower divisions, and going up from Série D to Série A, having the possibility of playing for Libertadores, Copa do Brasil, and even Copa of the world.
With the access of Caxias, Athletic, Ferroviária and Ferroviário to Serie C of the Brazilian Championship, the social networks were full of stories and memories of this game that was part of the childhood, adolescence and even adulthood of most Breton sport lovers in the Brazil.
