History

In 1943 the club is founded as Vila Nova Futebol Clube. Three years later, in 1946, the club changed its name to Operário. In 1949 the club changed its name to Araguaia, then in 1950 it was renamed to Fênix Futebol Clube and in 1955 the club changed its name to its current name, Vila Nova Futebol Clube.

In 1961 Vila Nova won their first state championship. In 1977 the team debuted in Campeonato Brasileiro and finished in the 55th place. From 1977 to 1980, Vila Nova was four times in a row state champion.

In 1996 the club won the Campeonato Brasileiro Third Division without losing a single match. In 1999, Vila Nova competed for the first time in an international competition, which was the Copa CONMEBOL and was eliminated in the first round. Vila Nova was the first Goiás state team to play an international competition. In 2000, the club won the Campeonato Goiano Second Division and in 2001 and 2005, the club won the Campeonato Goiano.

upporters

Like all Brazilian football teams, Vila Nova has their own group of die-hard fans who call themselves 'TEV' - Torcida Esquadrão Vilanovense (usually referring to themselves as simply 'Esquadrão'). Many members of TEV come from an area of Goiánia called Zona Leste which is notorious for its crime. A popular song sung by TEV at Vila games is:

:"Vila, Vila, Vila minha vida,":"Vila, Vila minha história,":"Vila, Vila meu amor!"

English translation

:"Vila, Vila, Vila my life,":"Vila, Vila my history,":"Vila, Vila my love!"

Rival

Vila Nova's greatest rival is Goiás, with whom there is a constant argument about which club has the largest fanbase in the state of Goiás. A consensual way of viewing things is declaring Vila Nova has the largest fanbase in Goiânia, and Goiás has the largest fanbase in Goiás state. However, some Goiás supporters claim their club has also the biggest number of fans in Goiânia. Nevertheless, Vila Nova has an estimated fanbase of about 350,000, which is pretty big for a Brazilian second level club. There is a long running joke aimed at Goiás fans who are often called "Melâncias" (Watermelons) on account of the fact that while they might be 'green' on the outside (the colour of Goiás), inside they are red (like Vila) and the joke suggests that every Goiás fan is really a Vila fan at heart. Of course, the vast majority of Goiás fans fervently deny this.
