Mogi Mirim Esporte Clube, commonly called Mogi Mirim, is a Brazilian football team from Mogi Mirim in São Paulo, founded on February 1, 1932.

The team's home ground is the Papa João Paulo II stadium, which has a capacity 19,900. Mogi Mirim plays in red shirts, shorts and socks.

History[edit]

The club was founded on February 1, 1932, and since its first year the club has been competing in tournaments organized by the Federação Paulista de Futebol (Paulista Football Federation). The club became a professional team in the 1950s, but its results were poor at the beginning. In the 1980s, after the arrival of Wilson de Barros as club president, Mogi Mirim began to see results and eventually was promoted to the Campeonato Paulista first division. The club was relegated to the second division in 1994, but was promoted again to the first division the following year.

In 2008, Rivaldo, who is one of the most famous Brazilian footballers, became the chairman of club.[1]

In December 2014, Rivaldo put the club up for sale on Instagram.[2]
