In 1903, Companhia Paulista de Estradas de Ferro ("São Paulo Railroad Company") employees founded Jundiahy Football Club. In 1908, due to the lack of time of its members, Jundiahy Football Club folded. Supporters, sympathizers and players of the defunct Jundiahy founded Paulista Futebol Clube on 17 May 1909.

In 2005, the club won the Copa do Brasil, beating Fluminense in the final. In the following year, Paulista competed in the Copa Libertadores for the first time, being eliminated in the first stage by River Plate and Club Libertad, despite securing a 2 to 1 victory over the former.

Club nameEdit

Founded as Paulista, the team had various names in the 1990s. In 1995, the name was Lousano Paulista. In 1999, with the support of Parmalat, the name of the team was Etti Jundiaí, since Paulista is the name of a Parmalat competitor. In 2002, the team lost the support of Parmalat and the name of the team became just Jundiaí. In 2003, the team name was changed back to Paulista Futebol Clube.
