Cuiaba

Cuiaba Esporte Clube, or Cuiaba, as they are usually called, is a Brazilian football team from Cuiaba, capital city of the Brazilian state of Mato Grosso, founded on December 12, 2001.

History

The club was founded on 12 December 2001 by former player Gaucho, who was the manager in the club's amateur era. In 2003, they took part of their first professional tournament, the Campeonato Mato-Grossense, and lifted the trophy after defeating Barra do Garcas in the finals.

Cuiaba also played in the 2003 Serie C, being knocked out by Palmas. In 2004, the club again won the Mato-Grossense, but was kocked out in both the 2004 Copa do Brasil and 2004 Serie C.

In December 2006, after a disappointing ninth position in the year's Mato-Grossense, Cuiaba closed their football department. The club only returned to an active status in 2009, after being acquired by the Grupo Dresch, and competed in the Campeonato Mato-Grossense Segunda Divisao, where they finished second and achieved promotion back to the top tier.

In 2011, Cuiaba lifted the Mato-Grossense after seven years. They also played in that year's Serie D, and achieved promotion after finishing third. In the following year, they lost the Mato-Grossense on penalties to Luverdense, and managed to avoid relegation from the Serie C.

The club won two consecutive Mato-Grossense titles in 2013 and 2014, and avoided relegation from the Serie C. In 2014, the club left their stadium Estadio Eurico Gaspar Dutra and moved to the Arena Pantanal, built for the 2014 FIFA World Cup.

After losing the first match to the Remo by 4–1, it obtained a historic turnaround and won by 5–1, obtaining the title of Copa Verde of that year. With the title, the club secured a place in the Copa Sudamericana the following year and participated for the first time in an international competition.
