HistoryEdit

The club was founded on January 25, 1921 by two brothers from Rio de Janeiro.[1] One was a supporter of Flamengo, while the other was a supporter of Fluminense.[1] A training match against an amateur club from the municipality of Fazenda Itaquerê was set to decide if the club would be named Flamengo or Fluminense.[1] With a victory, the club would be named Flamengo, while if defeated the club would be named Fluminense.[1] The club beat their opponents 3–0, but adopted the name Oeste Futebol Clube, after the Center-West region of São Paulo state, while Flamengo's colors were chosen.[1]

The club competed in the Campeonato Paulista Série A1 for the first time in 2004, after winning the Série A2 in the previous season.[2] The club returned to the Série A1 in 2009, after being defeated by Santo André in the Série A2 final in 2008.[3] Oeste won the 2012 Série C after beating Icasa in the final.[4] In 2016, they sealed a partnership with Grêmio Osasco Audax, 2016 Campeonato Paulista A1 runners-up, for the 2016 Serie B, which included mixing players from both teams in one squad and playing home games at Audax's stadium in Osasco.[5]

In 2017, Oeste was relocated definitely to the city of Barueri[6], since the Estádio Municipal dos Amaros wasn't allowed to host Série B matches due to its limitations[7], and the City Hall of Itápolis, owners of the stadium, couldn't reach an agreement with the club.

SymbolsEdit

The club's mascot is a jaguar, named after one of the city's main rivers, Rio da Onça (Onça River), onça is Portuguese for jaguar.[8]

StadiumEdit

For most of their history, Oeste's home stadium has been the Estádio Municipal dos Amaros, which has a maximum capacity of 6,000 people.[9] In 2016 they played their home games at Prefeito José Liberatti, located in Osasco.[9] The stadium has a maximum capacity of 17,430 people and was inaugurated on December 16, 1996. From 2017 onwards, they play at the Arena Barueri, in Barueri.
