Clube Atlético Paranaense, commonly known as Atlético Paranaense, is a Brazilian football team from Curitiba in Paraná, founded on March 26, 1924. The club won the Campeonato Brasileiro Série A (Premier League) in 2001.

According to the independent auditors BDO RCS, the brand of the club is the thirteenth most valuable in Brazil, surpassing 86 million reals.


The club was founded in 1924.[1]

The club's first match was played on April 6, when Atlético Paranaense beat Universal FC 4–2.[2]

Atlético Paranaense has participated in the Copa Libertadores, in 2000, 2002, 2005 and 2014. In 2005, Atlético Paranaense was the runner-up of the competition being defeated in the finals by São Paulo.

A survey taken in 2005 by Paraná Pesquisas Institute showed that Atlético Paranaense has the largest amount of supporters in Curitiba.[3]

In 2006 Clube Atlético Paranaense had a good performance in the Copa Sudamericana, reaching the semifinals after defeating high-profile teams like Argentina's River Plate and Uruguay's Nacional. In 2007, the team partnered with the American MLS club FC Dallas. In 2010 they also announced a partnership with Vitesse Arnhem in the Netherlands.

Team colors and Uniform

Originally in 1924 Atlético used to play using a horizontally striped in red and black shirt, along with white shorts and red and black socks.

In 1989 Atlético's administrators wanted to differentiate the team's uniform from the other red and black teams in Brazil (mainly speaking of Flamengo, Sport Recife and Vitória), so they changed the home shirt to be vertically striped in red and black (the team kept playing with white socks and white shorts). In 1996 Atlético changed the color of the socks and the shorts from white to black.
