The club was founded on September 20, 1912 by Lafaiete Pacheco, former member of Clube Alagoano de Regatas. He was dissatisfied with the precarious conditions of his former club. Aroldo Cardoso Zagallo, father of Mário Jorge Lobo Zagallo, worked at the club in 1913 as the football department boss.
Four years later, in 1916, CRB bought an estate in Pajuçara neighborhood and built its football field where is now Severiano Gomes Stadium.
