The Brazilian football champion is the winner of the highest league in Brazilian football, which is currently the Campeonato Brasileiro Série A.

The Brazilian Football Confederation recognizes the winners of the Série A as historically the only Brazilian football champion. Following a decision on December 22, 2010, the CBF recognized the past winners of the Taça Brasil and the Torneio Roberto Gomes Pedrosa as Brazilian football champions for those tournaments.[1]

Together with eight titles each, Palmeiras and Santos hold the record for most Brazilian football championships.
