- “FUTEBOL BONITO” It’s Pelé Sports‘ mantra. Our identity, our philosophy, what our brand is all about. Futebol bonito means the beauty of the game. It honors Pelé’s beliefs and values. Futebol bonito means looking after your teammates, of caring for anyone who kicks a ball. And keeping fit and staying healthy means any player can enjoy the beautiful game more. Futebol bonito means going back to the sport’s roots. To the street players, to the kids doing their thing on urban courts, dirt pitches, or any patch of ground. It’s football stripped down to its simple, straight-forward best: no frills, no fuss, no compromise: football that’s about free expression, just the way Pelé and the boys from Brazil played it. Futebol bonito is about reclaiming the game – rediscovering the joy and love for football, feeling the way Pelé played. It’s what football is really all about.
