Recifenses are passionate about their football, even though their most successful teams, Sport (www.sportrecife.com.br) and Náutico (www.nautico-pe.com.br), both have a history of yo-yo-ing between the national Série A and Série B. Náutico plays at the large Arena de Pernambuco, which sometimes also hosts Sport's home fixtures that are too big for their smaller private ground.
