Cuiabá Esporte Clube, commonly known as Cuiabá, is a Brazilian football team based in Verdão, Cuiabá, Mato Grosso state. They won the Campeonato Mato-Grossense three times, competed in the Copa do Brasil three times and in the Série D once.



Foundation and early years

The club was founded on December 10, 2001,[1] by the retired footballer Gaúcho.[2] Cuiabá won the Campeonato Mato-Grossense in 2003 and in 2004.[3] They competed in the Copa do Brasil in 2004, when they were eliminated in the First Stage by Goiás, and in 2005, when they were eliminated in the First Stage by Vila Nova.

Financial crisis and folding

In the following years, due to Gaúcho's dissatisfaction with the Federação Mato-Grossense de Futebol and a financial crisis after the club not renewing the contract with their sponsor, Cuiabá closed its football department in 2006.[4]


Cuiabá reopened its football department in 2009,[5] competing in the Campeonato Mato-Grossense Second Level. They also finished in the same year as runner-ups in the Copa Governador do Mato Grosso, winning the competition in 2010, after beating Operário de Várzea Grande 2-0 and 3-1 in the final.[6]

The club is owned by the Dresch brothers, who also own the Drebor Borrachas, a factory located in Cuiabá, they bought the club's shares from Gaúcho and started investing in the club. Drebor is also the club's sponsor. Cuiabá won the Campeonato Mato-Grossense again in 2011, after beating Barra do Garças in the final. They also competed in the Copa do Brasil in 2011, when they were eliminated in the First Stage of the cup by Ceará.

They competed in the Série D in 2011, and gained promotion to the 2012 Série C after defeating Independente from Tucuruí, Pará, 2-0 and 4-2, in the Quarterfinals of the competition.[7]
