Esporte Clube de Patos, commonly known as Esporte de Patos, or just as Esporte, is a Brazilian football club based in Patos, Paraíba state.

History[edit]

The club was founded on July 7, 1953,[1] by former athletes from the defunct local club Botafogo de Patos. The founders were fans of Pernambuco football, thus the club adopted a similar name to Sport Club do Recife, and adopted the same colors and team kits as Clube Náutico Capibaribe's. Esporte won the Campeonato Paraibano Second Level in 2005.
