Guarani Futebol Clube, commonly referred to as simply Guarani, is a Brazilian association football club in Campinas, São Paulo. They currently play in the Série B, the second tier of Brazilian football, as well as in the Campeonato Paulista Série A1, the top tier of the São Paulo state football league.

It is also known as Bugre, a popular term for an Indigenous Brazilian, and its supporters are known as bugrinos.

History[edit]

Guarani Futebol Clube was founded on April 1, 1911, in the city of Campinas, São Paulo, as Guarany Foot-Ball Club, by the initiative of 12 students from the Gymnasio do Estado (now Culto à Ciência).[2] The students, including Pompeo de Vito, Hernani Felippo Matallo and Vicente Matallo, usually played football at Praça Carlos Gomes.[2] Vicente Matallo became Guarani's first president.[2] Guarani was named after maestro Antônio Carlos Gomes' opera "Il Guarany". Antônio Carlos Gomes was born in Campinas, Brazil, and is one of the most distinguished nineteenth century classical composers.[3] Guarani was officially founded on April 1, 1911, but to avoid April Fools' Day jokes by supporters of rival teams, the directors of Guarani changed the official foundation date to April 2, 1911.[3]

In 1949, Guarani won Campeonato Paulista Second Division, gaining the right to play in the first division the following year.[3]

As of 2019, Guarani is the only Brazilian countryside team to have won the national championship (not counting Santos; although Santos is not a state capital, it is located on the coast). The club won Campeonato Brasileiro in 1978, after defeating Palmeiras.[4]

In 1979, the club was a semi-finalist in the Copa Libertadores, but was eliminated by eventual champions Club Olimpia. This run remains Guarani's best performance in international competitions to date.

In 2016, Guarani qualified for the playoff semifinals of 2016 Campeonato Brasileiro Série C, thus ensuring its return to Serie B after a four-year absence.
