General research on Brazil has given me a better idea about the country as a whole, and I have also gone into detail with the football teams and their logos etc.
Above: Map of Brazil outlining the different States.

As there are far too many football clubs and teams, I looked at the national leagues – there are four main leagues, Série A, Série B, Série C and Série D and I think it would be good to focus on one particular league, so I have looked at Série A (as this is made up of the best teams).
Above: This outlines the teams – which state they are from, logos and kit for each team.

Brazil is responsible for a third of the world’s coffee, making it the world’s largest producer. The coffee plantations cover 27,000 km2 (10,000 sq mi), are mainly located in the southeastern states of Minas Gerais, São Paulo and Paraná where the environment and climate provide ideal growing conditions. [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Coffee_production_in_Brazil]. Coffee production in Brazil dates back to the 1800s. Production as a share of world production peaked in the 1920s, with the country supplying 80% of the world’s coffee, but has declined since the 1950s due to increased global production.
