There is an important historical fight joining opponents this Thursday, in Maracanã, in the half-stroke of the Rio Cup. Vasco and Bangu, which ends 100 years since it began in 2019 – the first time on 15 June 1919, with a victory of 4 to 1 the Bangu – met each other for the final of the final, but at the start of their tours they were opposed to racism in Brazilian football.
The most famous case is Vasco. With a crew of seven poor people, he fought in Rio in 1923, and amazed the competitions. The following year, a new consortium was created in Rio de Janeiro, the Amea (the Metropolitan Athletic Association), which invited the club into the league, with one power: to hold 12 players. was inspected and finally not agreed; are based on the criteria of illiteracy and the circumstances and nature of their roles.

Vasco's response has been historical. The club refused to take part in the league and they played for another team, consisting of smaller teams, who were champions, the Metropolitan Sports League. In 1925 he returned to dispute with the main clubs.
– Vasco was the first champion of the team. It was a club that had no complaint about ethnicity, religion, economic status. It was enough to protect the shirt with the intense pressure that was expected from an athlete. (With the invitation of Amea), the leaders were involved in a peril. Even athletes were not represented in defending the investigation – João Ernesto Ferreira, vice-president of the Vasco Special Federation.

The strange thing was that the Bangu was part of Amea – and perhaps he climbed black players. He was in his squad Luiz Antônio, brother of Domingos da Guia. But the club was one of the founders of the new league and had no fulfillment conditions for riots, unlike Vasco.
His first black player in Brazilian football
Bangu was founded on 17 April, 1904 by English workers working for Companhia Progresso Industrial do Brasil, a community clothing factory. Soon next year, the club's first black athlete was: Francisco Carregal, a Brazilian man.
– Francisco Carregal was a Brazilian, the son of an Portuguese father, and a Brazilian black mother. He started playing football on the factory grounds. He was even part of the Grand team – the natural process – said Clécio Regis, a long-standing supporter of the club's historian and Banga researcher.

Many of the references to Francisco Carregal are Brazilian football's first black player. The Black Bridge also says that this situation exists, for Miguel do Carmo. A few months after Carregal joined the team, Banu decided to try to get more black boys.
The club also made a distinction between supporters at the stadium – at this point football was regarded as an elite sport, where poor and black people could not see the games in the centers. exhibition.
But between 1907 and 1909 the Bangu from the Metropolitan Football League, which later organized the Carpian Campeonato, defeated the other clubs in the running of black athletes. The League also banned the "people of color" from participating in their competitions.
The problem was huge. The Metropolitan League did not play black players in their competitions. The Banga then decided to organize a parade and competition with other smaller local teams. In close connection with Carregal and other athletes, Bangu was out of the League for two years, "Clécio explained.
Carregal became the first in a series of giant black guards to defend from Bangu, including Zizinho, Marinho, Zozimo and members of the Guia family (Luiz, Domingos, Ladislau, Meio and Ademir). The Bangu was a Second Divisional Cargo Carker in 1911 with four black hats on the machine. The First Department had the first state title in 1933.
