The club was founded on June 1, 1914 by the Uruguayan Bertoni brothers, after watching a game between America and a Campos combined team, won by 3-1 by the former. The club was originally planned to be named América Football Club, after America of Rio de Janeiro.
In 2002, Americano won both the Taça Guanabara and the Taça Rio, but was defeated by Fluminense in both legs (2-0 and 3-1) of the Campeonato Carioca final. In 2004, Americano reached the final four of the Brazilian Série C, but finished in the third position, after União Barbarense and Gama, and was not promoted to the Série B.
