Social Futebol Clube, usually known simply as Social, is a Brazilian football club from Coronel Fabriciano founded in 1944.

Their home stadium is Louis Ensch Stadium, which has a maximum capacity of 6,000 people. The club competed in the Brazilian Championship Third Level in 1997.


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.

In 1997, Social competed in the Brazilian Championship Third Level, reaching the second stage of the competition, after being defeated by Juventus of São Paulo.[2]
