Sampaio Corrêa Futebol Clube, usually known as Sampaio Corrêa, is a Brazilian association football club from São Luís, Maranhão state, founded on March 25, 1923.

The club's colors are yellow, green and red. Sampaio Corrêa's nickname is Bolivianos (meaning Bolivians) because its colors are similar to the Bolivian ones. The club is also nicknamed Tricolor de Aço (meaning Steel Tricolour). The club's mascot is a shark.

It has a fierce rival with Moto Club de São Luís which is considered one of the biggest in Brazil.


On March 25, 1923, the club was founded as Associação Sampaio Corrêa Futebol Clube. Abrahão Andrade was the Sampaio Corrêa's first president. The club is named after a seaplane called Sampaio Corrêa II, which visited the city of São Luís on December 12, 1922, and was commanded by two pilots, the Brazilian Euclides Pinto Martins and the American Walter Hinton. On April 26, 1925 the club played its first official match. Sampaio Corrêa beat Luso Brasileiro 1–0. The goal was scored by Lobo.

On December 17, 1972, the club won the Campeonato Brasileiro Second Division, after beating Campinense in the final. However, there was no promotion to the first division.

In 1997, the club won the Campeonato Brasileiro Third Division, after beating Francana 3–1 in the last match, and was promoted to the following year's Second Division. In 1998, Sampaio Corrêa won the Copa Norte, beating São Raimundo-AM in the final. In the same year, the club reached Copa CONMEBOL's semi-final round. Sampaio Corrêa beat América de Natal in the first round, Deportes Quindío of Colombia in the second round, and was eliminated by Santos in the semi-finals.


Its home matches are usually played at Castelão stadium, which has a maximum capacity of 40,000 people.
