Centro Sportivo Alagoano, (also known as "CSA" or "Alagoano" by non-Brazilians) is a Brazilian football team from Maceió in Alagoas, founded on September 7, 1913. It is the biggest club in the state of Alagoas, and the largest fan base.

The home stadium is the Gustavo Paiva stadium, which has a capacity 4,000.[1] CSA's greatest rival is CRB.

In 1976, Fernando Collor de Mello, who later was elected president of Brazil, was the club's chairman [3]. Brazilian singer Djavan played for Alagoano as a midfielder before he decided to become a singer.[4]



On September 7, 1913, the same day of the anniversary of the Brazilian Independence from Portugal, the club was founded as Centro Sportivo Sete de Setembro. In 1914, Centro Sportivo Sete de Setembro was renamed to Centro Sportivo Floriano Peixoto, after Floriano Peixoto, who was Brazil's second president, and was a War of the Triple Alliance hero. Four years later, in 1918, the club was renamed to its current name, Centro Sportivo Alagoano.

In 1928, the club won its first title, the state championship of Alagoas.

In 1980, the club was the runner-up of the Brazilian Second Division. In the final, Londrina of Paraná state and CSA drew 1-1 in Maceió, in the first leg, and in the second leg, in Londrina city, Londrina beat the club 4-0. In 1982, the club was again finalist of the Brazilian Second Division. CSA was defeated by Campo Grande, of Rio de Janeiro. In the first leg, in Maceió, CSA won 4-3. In the second leg, in Rio de Janeiro, Campo Grande won 2-1. In the tie-breaker match, Campo Grande won 3-0. In 1983, the club reached again the Brazilian Second Division final. CSA was defeated by Juventus, of São Paulo. In the first leg, in Maceió, CSA won 3-1. In the second leg, in São Paulo, Juventus won 3-0. In the tie-breaker match, Juventus won 1-0.

In 1999, CSA competed in Campeonato do Nordeste, being eliminated by Bahia in the semifinals. Eventually, Vitória, Bahia, and Sport Recife (respectively the winner, the runner-up and the third placed teams in Campeonato do Nordeste) declined successively to dispute Copa CONMEBOL, so, CSA was invited to the competition. CSA, surprising, reached the competition final, but was defeated by Talleres, of Argentina. In the first leg, in Maceió, the club won 4-2. In the second leg, in Córdoba, Talleres won 3-0. However, the competition's top goalscorer was CSA's Missinho.
