Its home stadium is the Nabi Abi Chedid stadium, capacity 21,209. They play in white shirts, shorts and socks.

The Chedid family has a lengthy connection to Bragantino. Bragantino's first president was Hafiz, and among his successors are included his sons Jesus and Nabi, and the current president, Marco Antônio Abi Chedid, Nabi's son and Hafiz's grandson.
