Canoas Sport Club, usually known as Canoas is a Brazilian football club from Canoas, Rio Grande do Sul, founded by the Lutheran University of Brazil (in Portuguese, Universidade Luterana do Brasil - ULBRA). The club is also active in futsal. The club was originally named Sport Club Ulbra and then Universidade Sport Club.

History[edit]

On January 26, 1998, the club was founded by the Lutheran University of Brazil as Sport Club Ulbra. The club started with volleyball, futsal, handball, and athletics sections.[1]

In 2001, the club started its football department, and joined the Rio Grande do Sul Football Federation.[1]

In 2002, Ulbra competed in the Campeonato Gaúcho Third Division and the Second Division, because the competition's regulation allowed a club to play in both divisions in the same year.[1] The club also participated in the national third division, the Campeonato Brasileiro Série C for the first time. The club was eliminated in the quarterfinals by Marília.[2]

In 2003, the club won the Campeonato Gaúcho Second Division, and was promoted to the First Division for the following season.[3] The club again competed in the Campeonato Brasileiro Série C. Ulbra was eliminated in the second stage by another club from the same state, RS.[4]

In 2004, Ulbra was the Campeonato Gaúcho's runner-up. The club beat Grêmio 3-1 in the semifinals, but was defeated by Internacional in the final.[5] The club competed again in the Campeonato Brasileiro Série C and was eliminated by Hermann Aichinger in the second stage.[6]

In 2005, the club entered the national cup competition, the Copa do Brasil, for the first time. Ulbra was eliminated in the first round by Treze.[7] In 2006 the club competed in the Campeonato Brasileiro Série C, but was eliminated in the second stage of the competition,[8] and in 2007, the club was eliminated in the third stage of the championship.[9]

The club was renamed to Universidade Sport Club in December 2009.[10] The club was renamed to Canoas Sport Club on November 26, 2010.[11]
