Its fiercest rival is Juventude, the other club based in Caxias do Sul. The local derby is known as Ca-Ju. Grená currently is ranked as the 46th best team in Brazil, according to the Brazilian Football Confederation Ranking.[1]

History[edit]

Caxias was founded on April 10, 1935, as Grêmio Esportivo Flamengo, which had been a fusion of two other teams (Ruy Barbosa and Rio Branco).[2] However the club, as well as Juventude folded due to a financial crisis in the 1960s.[2] Both teams merged into Associação Caxias de Futebol on December 14, 1971.[2] Juventude reestablished itself in 1975, and Grêmio Esportivo Flamengo adopted the name Sociedade Esportiva e Recreativa Caxias do Sul.[2] In 1972, Associação Caxias de Futebol and Grêmio played the first game on color TV in Brazil. The game finished 0-0. The club's greatest feat was the 2000 Campeonato Gaúcho title.[2]
