Runners-up (1): 2009


The home stadium Claúdio Moacir de Azevedo was not approved for 2009 Campeonato Estadual Carioca, due to the renewal of the whole stadium. A concrete structure was lifted, but the building process is far from complete yet. Then new stadium is said to hold 25,000 people, when done, besides having stores and a school underneath the seats structure. Unfortunately, there will be no floodlights yet.

As the Carioca championship is underway, Macaé Esporte is playing his "Homeground" matches in Araruama, a city 100 kilometers far away of Macaé, the hometown of the club. The stadium which Macaé is playing as homeground is the Arena Guanabara, owned by Guanabara Esporte Clube, a small but very comfortable stadium, which has a small capacity of 2.000 people. Just for instance, in Macaé's first match of the championship, against Volta Redonda on January 24, 2009, the public was said to be 541.


The official colors are yellow, blue and white.

Club kits[edit]

The home kit is a yellow, blue and white jersey, white shorts and white socks.
