On March 8, 2005, the mayor of Duque de Caxias, Washington Reis, refounded Tamoio Futebol Clube as Duque de Caxias Futebol Clube, with the purpose of increasing the club's visibility.[2]

In 2008, Duque de Caxias finished in the 4th place in that season's Campeonato Brasileiro Série C, thus being promoted to the 2009 Campeonato Brasileiro Série B.[3]
