The club was founded in 1924.[1]

The club's first match was played on April 6, when Atlético Paranaense beat Universal FC 4–2.[2]

Atlético Paranaense has participated in the Copa Libertadores, in 2000, 2002, 2005, 2014 and 2017. In 2005, Atlético Paranaense was the runner-up of the competition being defeated in the finals by São Paulo.[citation needed]

A survey taken in 2005 by Paraná Pesquisas Institute showed that Atlético Paranaense has the largest number of supporters in Curitiba.[3]

In 2006 Clube Atlético Paranaense had a good performance in the Copa Sudamericana, reaching the semifinals after defeating high-profile teams like Argentina's River Plate and Uruguay's Nacional. In 2007, the team partnered with the American MLS club FC Dallas. In 2010 they also announced a partnership with Vitesse Arnhem in the Netherlands.[citation needed]

Team colors and UniformEdit

Originally in 1924 Atlético used to play using a horizontally striped in red and black shirt, along with white shorts and red and black socks.[citation needed]

In 1989 Atlético's administrators wanted to differentiate the team's uniform from the other red and black teams in Brazil (mainly speaking of Flamengo, Sport Recife and Vitória), so they changed the home shirt to be vertically striped in red and black (the team kept playing with white socks and white shorts). In 1996 Atlético changed the color of the socks and the shorts from white to black.[citation needed]


Arena da Baixada

The home stadium is the Estádio Joaquim Américo, built in 1914 and renovated several times is traditionally known as Arena da Baixada.[citation needed]


  •   Orlando City SC (MLS) – The technical partnership connects City with a club that boasts a world-class training facility and one of Brazil’s top academies.[4]
  •   All India Football Federation (AIFF) – On 13 November 2014, Paranaense signed a partnership with AIFF, the governing body of Indian football, on a contract lasting till the end of 2015.[5] The idea was presented by Technical director Rob Baan. Its main motive would be to help India for "development of a strong Indian side in the 2017 FIFA U-17 World Cup.[6]
