ᑕ❶ᑐ As a fan of Palmeiras, he invaded Allianz to deliver a wedding invitation to Abel Ferreira with the support of the Corinthian bride

The engineer Eric de Barros28 years old, don’t regret the expulsion of Abel Ferreira at the premiere of Palm trees No Brazil Championship, last Saturday (15). As fanatic of the club as of the work of the Portuguese at the head of the team, he saw the opportunity to realize his dream: to receive the coach at his own wedding, next Sunday (23), in São Paulo.

The invitation was given to Abel Ferreira ten days ago, when Palmeiras won the São Paulo title against Holy water. Erick is at Allianz knowing that it was an impossible mission. It depended on the team being champions, he invading the field and then coming face to face with the coach.

« I had already invaded the field to win the Brazilian Championship and I saw that it was possible. In the Paulista final I invaded again and I was very close to him. I waited for the movement slows down, there was even a file waiting to take a picture, and I said, ‘Excuse me, Abel. Congratulations on the title. I have an invite.’ He said, ‘No, no’ . In the sense that marriage is something serious. Then I said, ‘It’s super important to me. I know it’s hard for you to go, the same day there’s a match against Vasco, but I want to show it to my children one day. Especially since there is a dispute at home. I’m going to say: ‘Look son, dad gave the wedding invitation to Abel Ferreira, the biggest manager of Palmeiras. Look how cool Palmeiras is,” said Erick.

Architect Evilym Oliveira, 26, is Erick’s fiancée. The argument at home is with her because she is fond of Corinthians and for some time I had been living with the groom’s dream.

« At first, I took it as a joke. He always talks about Abel. During the elaboration of the marriage, while making the announcements, he said: « You must leave one to Abel ». Everyone who lives with us says: « If Abel leaves, Erick could leave Evilym ». ‘Is he going to cry because of Evilym? No, he’s going to cry because of Abel’,” Evilym told the report.

But, although she was very Corinthian, she also played a key role in the invitation that ended up in Abel’s hands. After all, even dreaming big, the groom hesitated.

 » It is not that simple. Inside, there was this thing: « I will do it, I will not succeed and I will be frustrated ». I’m the most down-to-earth in our relationship, so it’s « I want it, I do it, I get it. » Then she started going, ‘Do you want it? So go ahead,” Erick said.

“That day of the final, there was a lot to settle on the wedding, it was Easter Sunday, but he wanted to go to the match. So, I said, ‘Okay, go ahead, take the invite and go,’” Evilym said.

She discovered Erick’s happiness through photos and videos that he kept recording as he achieved his goal. The Palmeirense were also impressed with the coach’s respect.

“He started walking around the field and helping journalists. When someone was going to hug him, he would change the invitation of the hand so as not to crush him. He showed concern. I was surprised by this attitude. I started filming to show him: ‘He has my invitation, he has my invitation’. Then her daughter asked what it was. He said « I was invited to a wedding ». Then he handed it to his wife to keep in her purse. The story ended there. I stayed inside the pitch watching the stadium, silly with it all and sent it to Evilym,” Erick said.

“He became stupid, mad. He said, ‘Look at him with my invitation to walk, he even protects, he walks from side to side with the invitation. He didn’t want to take it because he said it was a very serious matter, but then he took it and now he won’t let go, completely in love,” Evilym said.

Today, Erick down to earth. He knows that Abel Ferreira is a person of great public notoriety. It would be hard to imagine her at the wedding. He also knows that the (Site notre bureau spécialisé) agenda does not give a truce. But the deportation against the cuiaba Light a flame of hope. After all, the coach will have to comply with the automatic suspension against Vasco in Rio de Janeiro on the 23rd.

For someone who has come this far, it doesn’t hurt to dream of Abel’s presence at his own wedding.

« If the man appears, the party is over, » he said. “I was going to tell him to come in, sit in the front row. I was going to let him choose the chair and request a pre-wedding conference so he could talk about what a happy marriage needs. It was going to be like that,” he added with a laugh.

Erick and Evilym were university students when they met at the Seventh-Day Adventist Church in Guarulhos in early 2017. At the time, they were involved in a social action called « Desbravadores », with elderly children 10 to 15 years old. He already knew she was from Corinth, just as she had known she was from Palmeiras. The fanaticism of the two even made (Site notre bureau spécialisé) the subject of the first conversations. And Erick’s love motivates him to try something crazy.

« On our first Valentine’s Day, as she had never been to a stadium, I took her to see Corinthians x Sao Paulo, an Itaquera. What was my but? Then take her to the Allianz so she can keep me company,” Erick said.

“I didn’t think I would be cheated, but I was. He took me there just to fool me, just to say ‘Oh, I’m going to see Corinthians and then you’re going to Palmeiras with me’. Then I was at Allianz with him every week,” added Evilym.

The different passions of (Site notre bureau spécialisé) did not prevent them from building a healthy relationship around (Site notre bureau spécialisé), although with some necessary exceptions so as not to harm the peace. « When I started dating Erick, I started not wanting to follow him anymore because he’s such a fanatic that he pissed me off. It was as if we were going to live 100% of our time with (Site notre bureau spécialisé). 50% on my side and 50% on my side. (Site notre blog d’information) for him is every day. He doesn’t like to watch the game with anyone, especially if it’s someone who slabs. I like to bray, to tease. I’m also sad when Corinthians lose, but I can handle it well. He doesn’t,” Evilym said.

She also has work to do not to let the groom’s passion for Palmeiras end up affecting the couple’s future decisions. Like the first names of the children, for example.

“He already proposed Marcos, Valdivia, he wanted to put Abel. I said no, not at all. The other day he suggested Eduardo. I like it. I loved. But I decided to do some research and saw that it was because of Dudu. I even have to be careful because he always tries a name related to Palmeiras,” said Evilym.

But not all she stops. Proof of this is that the wedding ceremony will have an alviverde touch, with or without the presence of Abel Ferreira for Palmeiras.

“The song, my entry, has been set for about three months. Will play the first verse of Champions League then the anthem of Palmeiras. But it didn’t happen that there were green flags at the exit because that generated the photos. But I still want to fly a Palmeiras flag,” Erick said.
