Santos

Santos Futebol Clube is a Brazilian football team from Santos, São Paulo state, Brazil.


It was founded as 'Santos Foot-Ball Clube' on April 14, 1912, through the initiative of three sports enthusiasts from Santos: Raimundo Marques, Mário Ferraz de Campos and Argemiro de Souza Júnior. The club won its first state tournament in 1935, and again 20 years later, in 1955. Pelé (chosen as "Athlete of the Century" by the IOC in 1999) started his career with the team in 1956, at the age of 15. With Pelé, Santos won the Intercontinental Cup in 1962 and 1963.


Santos' home stadium is the Urbano Caldeira (also known as Vila Belmiro), inaugurated on October 12, 1916. Nowadays it has a capacity of 25,256 people, but its record is almost 33,000 people, in a game against Corinthians (tie, 0-0), 1964. A fan of the team is known as a Santista.


They play in an all-white uniform, with a second choice uniform of black and white vertical stripes and black shorts.
