The origins of Náutico may be traced to the foundation of the Clube Náutico do Recife by a group of rowers ("Náutico" can be directly translated to "nautical") in 1898, but the official founding date is April 7 of 1901. Its first football team dates back to 1905, with a squad formed by Englishmen and Germans.

Náutico is the only football club in Pernambuco that has won the state championship 6 times in a row (from 1963 to 1968). The club has a historical rivalry with local clubs Sport Recife and Santa Cruz.

Náutico has an important swimming arena, including an Olympic-sized pool that meets all world standards. It also has activities in other sports including hockey, basketball, volleyball, handball, women's football, futsal, Brazilian jiu-jitsu, Boxing, Taekwondo, kendo, Muay Thai, MMA and the founding sport of the club, rowing. The official mascot of Náutico is the opossum, known locally as the "timbu".

Náutico has the 6th-largest core of fans in the Northeastern region of Brazil, and occupies the 21st place in the overall Brazilian ranking. In total, there were approximately 1.5 million Náutico fans in 2010, as showed by a Lance magazine and IBOPE research.[citation needed]

StadiumEdit

Náutico's stadium is the Estádio Eládio de Barros Carvalho, popularly known as the Estádio dos Aflitos, inaugurated on June 25, 1939. It was the first stadium in Pernambuco state, with a maximum capacity of 19,800 people.[1] The stadium is named after Eládio de Barros Carvalho, who had fourteen spells as Naútico's president. Aflitos is so nicknamed because it is located in the Nossa Senhora dos Aflitos neighborhood.

  • First game (25/06/1939): Naútico 5–2 Sport Recife
  • First goal (25/06/1939): Wilson (Náutico)
  • Largest attendance (21/07/1968): Náutico 1–0 Sport Recife (31,061 spectators)
  • Biggest score (01/07/1945): Náutico 21–3 Flamengo of Pernambuco
  • Capacity: 19,800 seated spectators

Starting in July 2013 Náutico will be playing their home matches in Arena Pernambuco. Arena Pernambuco is a new stadium under construction in the western suburbs of Recife and was originally being constructed for the 2014 World Cup. Having outgrown their current capacity at Estádio dos Aflitos and unable to expand the stadium further, Náutico signed into agreement to purchase the new Arena Pernambuco. Five World Cup 2014 matches will be held at the new stadium along with Náutico's home matches.

RivalryEdit

Náutico's greatest rivalry is with Sport Recife, and their derbies are known as the Clássico dos Clássicos ("The Derby of the Derbies", in Portuguese). It is one of the oldest derbies in Brazilian football (Third - 1909). Sport Club do Recife was formed from a dissident group from the then elitist Náutico. Because of this, the derby has complex social implications that continue today.

Náutico's other local rival is Santa Cruz (1918). The rivalry between the two clubs is known as the Clássico das Emoções ("The Derby of the Emotions").
