Tupi Football Club, usually known simply as Tupi, is a traditional Brazilian football club from Juiz de Fora, Minas Gerais state. They won the Série D once.


On May 16, 1912,[1] Antônio Maria Júnior and four other people founded Tupi Football Club.[2]

In 2001, Tupi won its first title, which was the Campeonato Mineiro Second Level (actually the tournament is the First Division Module II of the Minas Gerais State Championship), finishing ahead of Nacional de Uberaba in the final stage, which was a group stage competed by six clubs.[3] In 2008, Tupi won the Taça Minas Gerais. In the final, they beat América Futebol Clube (MG) (América Mineiro) in a 4−3 aggregate result.[4]

They won the Série D in 2011, after they beat Santa Cruz in the final.[5]

In 2015 the club finished 3rd in the Campeonato Brasileiro - Série C (third tier), qualifying for the Campeonato Brasileiro - Série B (second tier) in 2016.


Tupi's stadium is Estádio Municipal Radialista Mário Helênio, inaugurated in 1988, with a maximum capacity of 35,000 people.[6]
