Tuna Luso Brasileira, or Tuna Luso as they are usually called, is a Brazilian football team from Belém in Pará, founded on January 1, 1903. The club won the Campeonato Brasileiro Série B in 1985, the Campeonato Brasileiro Série C in 1992, and has also won the state championship ten times.
Tuna Luso was founded initially as a musical band. It occurred because the Portuguese cruiser Dom Carlos was going to visit the port of Belém on November 12, 1902. Some Portuguese youths, residing in the city, decided to found a musical band to receive their fellow countrymen. The name they chose to the band was Tuna Luso Caixeiral. Tuna means popular orchestra, Luso means Portuguese, and Caixeiral means commerce employee. Later, the club changed its name to Tuna Luso Comercial, and years later changed its name again, this time to Tuna Luso Brasileira.
In 1937, Tuna Luso won its first state championship. In 1985, Tuna Luso won the second division of the Brazilian National Championship. In 1992, Tuna Luso won the third division of the Brazilian National Championship.
The club's mascot is an eagle.
