São Paulo Athletic Club


São Paulo Athletic Club

São Paulo Athletic Club, also known as SPAC, was a historic Brazilian football club founded on May 15, 1888 by Charles William Miller and several English immigrants, being one of the first football clubs in the country. The club's players were English employees of Companhia de Gás (Gas Company), London Bank and São Paulo Railway, and Charles Miller was also a player at the club. São Paulo Athletic was supported by the British community living in São Paulo.

São Paulo Athletic Club was later renamed to Clube Atlético São Paulo, which is a Portuguese translation of its original name. However, the club is better known by its former name. Its colors are blue and white.

The club eventually closed its football division, but today it is still active in other sports, like rugby union and squash.
