Chapecoense's supporters

The club was founded as Associação Chapecoense de Futebol on May 10, 1973, after the merger of Atlético Chapecoense and Independente.[1]

In 1977, Chapecoense won its first title, which was the Santa Catarina State Championship, beating Avaí 1–0 in the final.[2]

In 1978, the club competed for the first time in the Brazilian Championship First Level, finishing in the 51st position,[3] and in following year, finished in the 93rd position.[4]

In 2002, due to a partnership, Chapecoense was renamed to Associação Chapecoense Kindermann/Mastervet.[1] In 2006, the club was renamed back to its original name, Associação Chapecoense de Futebol,[5] and also won the Copa Santa Catarina.[6]

In 2007, the club won for the third time the state championship,[7] and also competed in the Brazilian Championship Third Level, but was eliminated in the first stage of the competition.[8] They won the Campeonato Catarinense again in 2011.

Chapecoense will compete in the Série A for the first time since 1979 in 2014, as the club was promoted after they and Bragantino drew 1–1, in Chapecó, for the 2013 Série B.[9][10] Winning important points during its first season in the top flight, Chape cemented a place in the 2015 Série A, its second season in a row in the first division.
