History

Flamengo was founded on November 15, 1895 as a rowing club by José Agostinho Pereira da Cunha, Mário Spindola, Nestor de Barros, Augusto Lopes, José Félix da Cunha Meneses and Felisberto Laport. is the 319th day of the year (320th in leap years) in the Gregorian calendar. ...

A coxless pair which is a sweep-oar boat. ...


The group used to gather at Café Lamas, in the Flamengo (neighborhood next to Largo do Machado, Laranjeiras and Botafogo neighborhoods) neighborhood of Rio de Janeiro, and decided to form a rowing team. Rowing was the elite sport in Rio de Janeiro in the late 19th century and the youngsters hoped having their own club would make them popular with the young ladies of the city's high society. A coxless pair which is a sweep-oar boat. ...


They could only afford a used boat named "Pherusa", which had to be completely rebuilt before it could be used in competition. The team debuted on October 6, 1895 when they sailed off the Caju Point, from the Maria Angu beach, heading off to Flamengo beach. However, strong winds turned over the boat and the rowers nearly drowned. They were rescued by a fishing boat named Leal ("Loyal"). Afterwards, as the Pherusa was undergoing repairs, the boat was stolen and never again found. The group then had to save up money to buy a new boat, the "Etoile", renamed "Scyra."


On the night of November 17th, the group, gathered at Nestor de Barros's manor on Flamengo beach, founded the Flamengo Rowing Group ("Grupo de Regatas do Flamengo", in Portuguese) and elected its first board. The name was changed a few weeks later to "Clube de Regatas do Flamengo" ("Flamengo Rowing Club"). The founders also decided that the anniversary of the club foundation should be celebrated on November 15th, so as to coincide with the Day of the Republic, a national holiday.


Flamengo only embraced football when a group of dissatisfied players from Fluminense Football Club broke away from the club following a dispute with the board. The players (Alberto Borghert, Othon de Figueiredo Baena, Píndaro de Carvalho Rodrigues, Emmanuel Augusto Nery, Ernesto Amarante, Armando de Almeida, Orlando Sampaio Matos, Gustavo Adolpho de Carvalho, Lawrence Andrews and Arnaldo Machado Guimarães) decided to join Flamengo because Borgeth, who was the team's captain, was also a rower for Flamengo. Admittance of the new members was approved on November 8, 1911. A motion against the club taking part in football tournaments was defeated, and the members assembly officially created the football team on December 24, 1911.

The new team used to train on Russel beach, and gradually gained the support of the locals, who closely watched their practice games. The first official match was played on May 3, 1912 and is, to this day, the most spectacular victory of the club, as the team defeated Mangueira 16 to 2. The first Fla-Flu (which would eventually become one of the most famous football derbies in the world) was also played in that year, on July 7, and was won by Fluminense, by 3-2.

(1) (main article: Copa União) In 1987, CBF had monetary difficulties in organizing the national football tournament spawned a controversy that persists to this day. In that year, running the risk of not having an national championship, the 13 most traditional football clubs in Brazil joined in the Club of the Thirteen, due to their discontent with Brazilian football's governing body, the CBF, and to form a national championship to that year (a move not unlike the creation of club-administered football leagues all over Europe). CBF agreed with their rules and would legitimate that championship as an Brazilian Championship. Later time, seeing the fame and glory of the new Copa União, CBF created and formed another group, the "Brazil's Cup", reuniting 2 clubs that stayed out of "Copa União" and the other teams of second division. So, two modules appeared: the Copa União (Union Cup), first division of the brazilian soccer and "green module", which was organized by the Club of the 13, and the "yellow module", officially named by "Copa Brasil"(Brazil's cup), organized by the CBF and considered to be the second division. Whith the fear to lose power to the new Club of the Thirteen, the CBF decided that the champions and runner-ups of the two tournaments would face off in an extra round in which each of the four teams would play the other three. The outcome of the tournament would also determine which two clubs would represent the country in the following year's Copa Libertadores de América. The Club of the Thirteen, who organized the Copa União, didn't agree with this crossing, so, Flamengo, the champion, and Internacional, the runner-up, never played that games. Then CBF declared Sport winner of the competition it had organized, to be the national champions and awarded them and Guarani Futebol Clube (the "yellow group" runner-ups) the spots in the Copa Libertadores. However, Flamengo, the other original twelve members of the Club of the Thirteen, the Brazilian Supreme Court of Sports and most of the Brazilian media have never recognized the decision, declaring Flamengo the real champion.
(2) In 1975, the State of Rio de Janeiro was merged with the State of Guanabara, the former Federal District when the city of Rio de Janeiro was the nation's capital. However, it was only in 1979 that the two state football tournaments were finally unified. As a transition, the state's football governing body decided that all the teams would have to play in two tournaments, with slightly different formats. Both tournaments were won by Flamengo.
