About Santo André

Esporte Clube Santo André, also known as Santo André, is a Brazilian football (soccer) team from Santo André, São Paulo, São Paulo (state) state.

Santo André greatest rival is Associação Desportiva São Caetano, the other team in ABC region. The club's mascot name is Ramalhão ("Big Ramalho") after the Bandeirantes João Ramalho. João Ramalho founded the city of Santo André in 1553.


Santo André was founded on September 18, 1967 by people that wanted to have a team in their city representing the professional football of the Municipality.

The first Santo André directorship was elected on October 4, 1967 and was composed by the following members: Newton Brandão, the President; Wigand dos Santos, Antonio Ferreira dos Santos and Hildebrando Mota Carneiro, the vice-presidents; Nelson Cerchiari and Durval Daniel, secretaries; Matheus Guimarães Jr. and João Manha, the treasurers.

The first official match of the club took place on April 8, 1968 at Américo Guazzelli stadium in a friendly match against Santos Futebol Clube. Pelé did not play, but watched the game and participated in the festivities. Santo André won 2 - 1.

In 1984 Campeonato Brasileiro Série A Santo André were invited to play in Campeonato Brasileiro Série A based on their State Championship performance. The team reached the third round (ranked 10th overall), but were not invited to compete the following year as the criteria changed.

Santo André next made headlines in 2003 Campeonato Brasileiro Série C when the team finished as runners-up to Ituano Futebol Clube in Campeonato Brasileiro Série C and thus were promoted to Série B.

In 2004 Copa do Brasil, Santo André won their first national title when they defeated Clube de Regatas do Flamengo in the Copa do Brasil final, gaining the right to compete in the following year's Copa Libertadores. Their first season in Série B was over before it started as the team was deducted 12 points for playing an ineligible player. This meant at the time of the Copa do Brasil success their point tally on the local tournament was negative. The team recovered to comfortably avoid relegation.

In 2008 Campeonato Brasileiro Série B Santo André were runners-up to Sport Club Corinthians Paulista in the Campeonato Brasileiro Série B and thus earned promotion to Série A. After a hard fought campaign Santo André were relegated back to Série B on the last day of the season.

The 2010 Campeonato Paulista proved to be a highly successful campaign. The team finished second in the table behind Santos after a mid season seven match winning streak put them in a commanding position. In the playoffs Santo André overcame Grêmio Prudente Futebol, before facing the all conquering Santos Futebol Clube team who had scored nearly 100 goals already in all competitions. The first game ended in a 3-2 victory for Santos despite Santo André having a man sent off. The second match on May 2, 2010 proved to be an epic encounter as Santo André leveled the tie in the first minute, before being pegged back. A thrilling game finally ended 3-2 to Santo André (5-5 on aggregate) and saw three red cards given to Santos, and one to Santo André. Despite hitting the post twice, Santo André could not break down a professional Santos rear guard action. Santos thus won the title due to their superior overall record.

Santo André slipped into free fall and were relegated to Série C in 2010 Campeonato Brasileiro Série B and almost relegated to the Série D in 2011 Campeonato Brasileiro Série C.
