Duque de Caxias Futebol Clube, usually known simply as Duque de Caxias, is a Brazilian football team from the city of Duque de Caxias, Rio de Janeiro state. It plays in the Brazilian Série C which is the third division level of the Brazilian football. The club was founded on March 8, 2005.


Tamoio Futebol Clube was founded on February 22, 1957, in Xerém, a district of Duque de Caxias, by local sportsmen.[1]

On March 8, 2005, the mayor of Duque de Caxias, Washington Reis, refounded Tamoio Futebol Clube as Duque de Caxias Futebol Clube, with the purpose of increasing the club's visibility.[2]

In 2008, Duque de Caxias finished in the 4th place in that season's Campeonato Brasileiro Série C, thus being promoted to the 2009 Campeonato Brasileiro Série B.[3]
