They were founded on June 2, 1975 as Brasília Esporte Clube by the entrepreneurs José da Silva Neto and Vicente de Paula Rodrigues. The club won the Campeonato Brasiliense eight times, the last time being in 1987. Brasília were Torneio Centro-Oeste's runner-up in 1984, after being defeated by Guará in the final. 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, adopting a new logo, and changing its colors from red to yellow and blue. The club reverted to play in red in 2002. They competed in the Série A several times, the last time being in 2000 when the 116-team Copa João Havelange was played.
Brasília has qualified to the Série D in 2009, 2010 and 2013. In 2014 they won the Copa Verde, the regional cup for Center-West and Northwest teams.
