HistoryEdit

The club was founded on May 1, 1963[1] by Doro Germano,[2] and José Feijó de Sá, as Icasa Esporte Clube.[1] The club's founders were the owners of Indústria Cearense de Algodão S.A (Ceará Cotton Industry), shortened as ICASA, hence the club's name.[1]

Icasa competed in the Campeonato Brasileiro Série C in 1981, 1995 and in 1998, being eliminated in the first stage in 1981,[3] in the second stage in 1995,[4] and in the first stage in 1998.[5] In 1985, Icasa competed in the Série B, where they were eliminated in the first stage.[6] In 1992, Icasa won the Campeonato Cearense, sharing the title with Fortaleza, Ceará, and Tiradentes, as the competition was not concluded due to a judicial dispute.[7][8]

In 1998, the club was founded again as Juazeiro Empreendimentos to avoid paying a labor debt for a former club's player.[9] After the debt was paid with the help of the club's supporters, on January 7, 2002,[10] Juazeiro was refounded as Associação Desportiva Recreativa Cultural Icasa.[9] In 2003, the club won the Campeonato Cearense Second Level.[11] Icasa competed again in the Série C in 2005, where they were eliminated in the second stage,[12] in 2006, again Icasa was eliminated in the second stage,[13] in 2007, the club was eliminated in the first stage.[14] Icasa competed in the 2008 Série C, where they were eliminated in the second stage,[15] but as one of the four best clubs eliminated in that stage, Icasa qualified to compete in the following season's Série C.[16] In 2009, the club was promoted to Série B. They won the Copa Integração in 2007, 2008, and in 2009.
