Fans of ‘world’s worst team’ celebrate loss in Brazil
BRASILIA, Brazil (AP) Fans of the self-proclaimed ”world’s worst team” are celebrating after their team was eliminated from a soccer tournament in Brazil.
Ibis lost 3-2 on aggregate to Decisao in the second division of the Pernambuco state championship, blocking what could have been the team’s first promotion in decades.
Fans rallied over the last two months to keep the club’s losing traditions. And on Sunday, fans celebrated after a 2-0 first-leg victory was squandered at Decisao in a 3-0 loss.
Ibis had a victory drought of nearly four years in the 1980s, with 11 consecutive losses, earning the club the nickname.
