Current season

Clube do Remo, or Remo, as they are usually called, is a Brazilian football team from Belém in Pará, founded on February 5, 1905. Remo greatest rivals are Paysandu and Tuna Luso.


Clube do Remo was founded on February 5, 1905, as Grupo do Remo. The founders, before founding Remo, had abandoned Sport Club do Pará. On February 14, 1908, Remo was closed, after the club's general assembly. On March 29, 1908, Remo's partners and Sport Club do Pará made a deal, and Remo was officially extinct in 1908. On August 15, 1911, Remo was reorganized following the initiative of Antonico Silva, Cândido Jucá, Carl Schumann, Elzaman Magalhães, Geraldo Motta, Jayme Lima, Norton Corllet, Oscar Saltão, Otto Bartels and Palmério Pinto.

In 2005, the club was promoted to the second division after winning the third division. This was the club's first national title.

Other kits

In 2005, Remo had a special golden kit to celebrate its 100th anniversary. Although it was never used, because of the tradition to wear a navy blue uniform. In 2006, another golden kit was made, but again it was not used.

In 2010, it was done, once again, a golden uniform, this time used in official matches of the club.

Remo's 100th anniversary


Remo's stadium is Evandro Almeida (Baenão), which has a maximum capacity of 17,518 people. The stadium is named after Evandro Almeida, who was a Remo's football player and employee. The nickname Baenão is a reference to the place where the stadium is located, called Travessa Antônio Baena.

Mangueirão also held several Remo matches.


In the 1970s, the prestigious magazine Revista Placar, elected the best supported clubs in each Brazilian state and the Leão Azul again confirmed its supremacy in Pará. In the 90s contributed further to the increase in Clube do Remo fans, due to the large made the club in this period: eight state titles, large national campaigns and supremacy in the Classic King of the Amazon (the taboo history of 33 games without losing for the biggest rival).

However, from the 2000s, the Clube do Remo began to get into a turbulent period in its history with successive failures in national competitions like the relegation for the Série C in 2005 and getting even without play a national championship three times.

Despite the difficulties, the fans, contrary to expectations, only increased. Proof of this was the IBOPE which ranked the Clube do Remo as the second largest North of Brazil and the 16th in the ranking of the largest supporters of the country, besides being the northern fastest growing among fans in the range of 10 to 15 years, surpassing clubs like Botafogo, Fluminense and Coritiba. In Belém, Remo focuses its biggest fans. Currently, bluish appearance ranging from 1 million to 2 million.
