HistoryEdit

On August 6, 1944,[1] the club was founded by a group of sportsmen. Sertãozinho's first president was Enéas Sílvio Bordin.[2]

Between 1944 and 1969, the club only disputed amateur competitions, like Liga Ribeirãopretana de Futebol (Ribeirão Preto Football League) in the 1950s. At that time, Sertãozinho's greatest rival was Mogiana.[3]

In 1963, the club closed its football section. In 1969, the football section was reopened, using mostly São Paulinho Futebol Clube players.[3]

In 1971, Sertãozinho won its first title, the Campeonato Paulista Third Level, beating Rio Claro EC in the final. The club was thus promoted to the following year's second level.[2]

In 2004, the club won again the Campeonato Paulista Third Level, beating Mirassol in the final 3-0.[4]

In 2007, Sertãozinho disputed the Campeonato Paulista top level for the first time.[5] Its first game was against São Paulo Futebol Clube, at Frederico Dalmaso stadium. São Paulo won 3-1.[6]

Mascot and nicknameEdit

Sertãozinho's mascot is a bull, named Touro dos Canaviais, which means Sugar Cane Plantations Bull. The bull was chosen after the club played against Barretos, whose mascot is a bull.[3] Commander Alcídio Balbo was the mascot's creator.[10]
