During the Enlightenment, the greatest minds in Europe gathered together in coffeehouses to discuss philosophy, politics, and the nature of society. By means of their collective endeavours they built the foundation of modern Western political and intellectual culture.
At Café Futebol, our goal is to rekindle the spirit of the coffeehouse and apply it to an intellectual exploration of the beautiful game. You won’t find match reports, transfer rumours, or what Joey Barton tweeted here. Instead, you will find articles chronicling the crossroads of football, politics, history, and society in all corners of the world.
