Britânia Sport Club, commonly known as Britânia, were a Brazilian football team from Curitiba, Paraná state. They won the Campeonato Paranaense seven times.


Britânia Sport Club were founded on November 19, 1914, when Leão Foot-Ball Club and Tigre Foot-Ball Club merged.[1] They won the Campeonato Paranaense in 1918, 1919, 1920, 1921, 1922, 1923, and in 1928.[1] The club fused with Palestra Itália Futebol Clube and Clube Atlético Ferroviário in 1971, forming Colorado Esporte Clube.[1]


Britânia played their home games at Estádio Paula Soares Neto which had a maximum capacity of 4,000 people. The stadium was opened in 1943 with a match against Avaí – which was lost 1–4 – and demolished in 1998 to make way for a shopping center.[2]
