Hosting the World Cup had promised a home-field advantage as well as the opportunity to demonstrate the country’s ascent to the realm of modern nations. Planners intended the site of the final, Maracanã, to be the world’s largest stadium and thus a monument to Brazilian progress. In fact, the construction of Maracanã had not been complete when the tournament began. Over the course of the Cup, though, both the stadium and the nationalism focused inside it took their final forms. The Seleção bulled its way through the competition, with a 2–2 tie against Switzerland the only cause of consternation.

Given that the 1930 World Cup was the first ever held and that it took place in Uruguay, already two-time Olympic soccer champion, officials wanted to assemble a powerful Seleção. The Rio-based CBD called up fi fteen players from São Paulo; the CBD refused, however, to include any Paulistas on the coaching staff. In retaliation, the governing body of Paulista soccer barred its players from taking part. In the end, only one Paulista, Araken Patusca, defied his regional authorities and played in Uruguay; the rest of the team consisted of Rio players, many of them mulatto and preto.

Journalists at Afro-Brazilian papers praised the on-field success of these clubs but expressed even greater satisfaction in the dedication and discipline that Afro-Brazilian players demonstrated. Much like their counterparts in the white elite, Afro-Brazilians believed sports to be ennobling and healthy; as members of a subordinate group, they simply demanded the opportunity to get the full benefits of rowing, swimming, and soccer. 65 Perhaps the greatest challenge to the elite clubs, however, came from factory teams—teams organized by the owners and managers of the growing number of manufacturing firms.
