HistoryEdit

The club was founded on July 7, 1952 by former athletes from the defunct local club Botafogo de Patos. The founders were fans of Pernambuco football, thus the club adopted a similar name to Sport Club do Recife, and adopted the same colors and team kits as Clube Náutico Capibaribe's.[1] Esporte won the Campeonato Paraibano second division in 2005, 2013, 2015[2] and 2018.[3]
