HistoryEdit

They were founded on June 2, 1975 as Brasília Esporte Clube by the entrepreneurs José da Silva Neto and Vicente de Paula Rodrigues.[2] The club won the Campeonato Brasiliense eight times, the last time being in 1987.[1] Brasília were Torneio Centro-Oeste's runner-up in 1984, after being defeated by Guará in the final.[3] The club's football department was bought in 1999 by Brasília Promoções e Participações Desportivas S/A, which is a company owned by eight members (in Portuguese sócios) of the club, and the club was renamed to Brasília Futebol Clube,[2] adopting a new logo, and changing its colors from red to yellow and blue.[1] The club reverted to play in red in 2002.[2] They competed in the Série A several times, the last time being in 2000 when the 116-team Copa João Havelange was played.[2]
