FIFA 12 Game Guide: List of Brazilian Football Teams, Players and Stadiums

FIFA 12 is a soccer video game, released in U.S on September 27, 2011 and on September 30, 2011 in Europe. It is available for Xbox 360, PlayStation 2 and 3, Nintendo Wii and 3DS, as well as PSP and iOS based devices.

In FIFA 12, users can choose to play with the Brazilian teams from the first division. Liga do Brasil (Brazilian League) or Campeonato Brasileiro de Clubes da Série A (Brazilian Clubs Championship – A Series) features 20 teams.

In a season each team plays 38 matches. The season lasts from May until December, and Petrobas is the main sponsor of the championship.

Football is played in Brazil since 1959. Back then, there were 2 national championships: Taça Brasil and Torneio Roberto Gomes Pedrosa (Roberto Gomes Pedrosa Tournament). Because Brazil is a big country and at that time there was almost no infrastructure, a national league was impossible to be created.

In 1971, Campeonato Nacional de Clubes (National Club Championship) was introduced with the contribution of the military regime, which helped the teams to travel from one game to another.

Until 1987 the format of the championship was similar with the system used at the World Cup or UEFA Champions League (group stages, quarter finals, semi- finals and final).

Most clubs from São Paulo, except for Palmeiras, complained in 1979 because of the odd system of the championship and left the league. This complain came because their rivals, Palmeiras and Guarani, entered directly into the final stage.

Clube dos 13 (Club of the 13) was created in 1987 by 13 clubs. They wanted to negotiate the commercial arrangements on their own, leaving CBF (Brazilian Football Confederation) on the outside .

They created Copa União (União Cup), with a new system, but FIFA intervened saying that if a solution is not found, then the Brazilian football will be banned internationally and so an agreement was made with CBF. The game system from Copa União was kept and introduced into the national league.

Since then the same system is used, with some small changes being made every year.
