The club was founded on October 1, 1944, more than four years before Coronel Fabriciano's emancipation from Antônio Dias. The name Comercial was considered for the new club, because of the influence of businessman from Antônio Dias city. But the name Social was chosen to make the team represent all social classes of the town. In Portuguese, the word social has the same meaning as in English, but has a different pronunciation.
In the first years of the club's history the players were usually workers of Belgo Mineira Siderurgic and the supporters were mostly Fabriciano's downtown population, from varied social classes. The club's first professional game was played in 1981.
