The 66th season of the Brazilian Championship A Series takes place from 9 April to 13 November 2022. Matches are played in 15 cities across the country.

History of the Brazilian Championship A Series

Campeonato Brasileiro Série A was officially founded in 1971, although the Brazilian team had previously participated in several international tournaments. By 1970, the Brazilian team had won the FIFA World Cup three times.

In 1987, CBF announced a few weeks before the next Campeonato Brasileiro Série A that they could not host the tournament. As a consequence, 13 of the most popular Brazilian clubs formed a league, the Club of the 13 (Clube dos 13), to organize their own championship.

Since 2003, the Olympic system was abolished leading to a full-fledged league structure with a two-round system for determining the national winner.

Since 1971, the Sport Club Corinthians Paulista from São Paulo and Clube de Regatas do Flamengo from Rio de Janeiro have had the most trophies in the history of the Brazilian official championships, with seven each.
