Sampaio Corrêa Futebol Clube, usually known as Sampaio Corrêa, is a Brazilian football club from São Luís, Maranhão state, founded on March 25, 1923.

The club's colors are yellow, green and red. Sampaio Corrêa's nickname is "Bolivianos" (meaning "Bolivians") because its colors are similar to the Bolivian ones. The club is also nicknamed "Tricolor de Aço" (meaning "Steel Tricolour"). The club's mascot is a shark.


On March 25, 1923, the club was founded as Associação Sampaio Corrêa Futebol Clube. Abrahão Andrade was the Sampaio Corrêa's first president. The club is named after a seaplane called Sampaio Corrêa II, which visited the city of São Luís on December 12, 1922, and was commanded by two pilots, the Brazilian Pinto Martins and the American Walter Milton. On April 26, 1925 the club played its first official match. Sampaio Corrêa beat Luso Brasileiro 1-0. The goal was scored by Lobo.

On December 17, 1972, the club won the Campeonato Brasileiro Second Division, after beating Campinense in the final. However, there was no promotion to the first division.

In 1997, the club won the Campeonato Brasileiro Third Division, after beating Francana 3-1 in the last match, and was promoted to the following year's Second Division. In 1998, Sampaio Corrêa won the Copa Norte, beating São Raimundo in the final. In the same year, the club reached Copa CONMEBOL's semifinal round. Sampaio Corrêa beat América de Natal in the first round, Deportes Quindío of Colombia in the second round, and was eliminated by Santos in the semifinals.
