Broadway to Brazil tells the fascinating story of Corinthian-Casuals, an English non-league club with an extraordinary tale. We explore the rich history and exciting present of this unique team, speaking to players, supporters, management, and volunteers, and delving deep into the stories that mark the Casuals out as a club apart.
Hosts Jarek Zaba and Dominic Bliss examine the origins and legacy of the old Corinthian FC – once one of the world’s most famous teams and the only club to have provided the entire XI for the England national side – before following this lineage all the way through to the modern day Corinthian-Casuals.
Today the club play in inauspicious surroundings in Tolworth, south-west London, and compete in the seventh tier of the English football pyramid. But in Broadway to Brazil you’ll find out how the same club dished out Manchester United’s record defeat, inspired Real Madrid to wear white and shared the pitch with icons such as Brazilian legend Socrates. Plus we’ll discover why they are adored by millions in Sao Paulo and beyond thanks to their role in the founding of Corinthians Paulista.
