HistoryEdit

The club was founded on May 20, 1934, by a mixed group of men and women, hence the club's name, but instead of using the correct spelling Misto, the wrong spelling Mixto was used, to differentiate the club from the misto sandwich.[1]

In 1943, Mixto won the Campeonato Matogrossense first edition.[2] In 1976, the club competed in the Campeonato Brasileiro Série A for the first time, finishing in the 27th position.[3]
