More than just the most practiced and admired sport in Brazil, soccer is constituted as one of the most important element of our country s culture. And as any manifestation of the culture sphere, this sport overlaps an infinite amount of social and linguistic relations that constitutes it sometimes as an attractive and highly competitive sport (commercially), sometimes as a spectacle, metaphor and metonymy of society. In this sense, it can be seen as a major form of dramatization of Brazilian society, as regards the anthropologist Roberto DaMatta. Taking into account the theories of Mikhail Bakhtin about the concepts of carnivalization, play, aesthetics and ethics, the objective of this work is to search for points of intersection between soccer and art such as building an understanding of the sport as a form of social drama. Therefore, beyond the theoretical, it will take into account the analysis of various types of texts that present this sport as the main focus. Thus, we intent to better understand the cultural and linguistic relations which constitute soccer as a fundamental part of the Brazilian cultural context.
