The club was founded on June 30, 1994,[1] by a former president of another Ponta Grossa club, Operário Ferroviário Esporte Clube. They competed in the Série C in 1997, when they were eliminated in the Second Stage of the competition. Due to financial problems, in 2003 the club sold its spot in the Campeonato Paranaense to ADAP, competing in that season's competition as ADAP/Ponta Grossa. The club folded in the same year.
