Unofficial competition

An unofficial competition was played in 1992, between the champions of the Série A and of the Série B, as both championships were played in the first six months of the year. The game was played on 12 August between Flamengo (champion of the Série A) and Paraná (champion of the Série B). The game ended in a 2-2 draw, and in the penalty shootout, Flamengo beat the opponent 4-3. While RSSSF[3] regards the competition as some form of Supercopa do Brasil, in Brazil the competition was popularly known as Taça Brahma dos Campeões. Differently from the 1990 and 1991 editions, which were official CBF competitions,[4][5] the 1992 edition[6] was a friendly cup.[7]
