Clube Atlético Paranaense is a Brazilian football team from Curitiba in Paraná, founded on March 26, 1924. The club won the Campeonato Brasileiro Série A in 2001.



Atlético Paranaense was born as the result of a merge between the two Curitiba traditional teams, Internacional-PR and América-PR. The merge was announced on March 21, 1924 and formalized five days later, on March 26, when the club changed its name and its colors, and also the new board of directors assumed the administration of the club. The chosen club's field was Internacional old field, called Água Verde.

The club's first match was played on April 6, and the first competition match was played on April 20, when Atlético beat archi-rival Coritiba 2-0. The constant participation in several championships, and the presence of a good team culminated in the club's first state championship title, still in 1925, consolidating the club as one of the main clubs of its state. In 1934, Atlético Paranaense acquired the groundplot where Arena da Baixada is located.

In 1949, the club won its ninth Paranaense State Championship, which gave them the nickname of Furacão (meaning hurricane, in English) which was attributed to the club and its great campaign in the competition. Since then, Furacão became the club's nickname.

In 1995 after Coritiba beat Atlético 5-1, a new board of directors took over the control of the club, and started a strategical project called "Atlético Total".

Atlético was the first Paranaense club to participate of Torneio Roberto Gomes Pedrosa, nowadays replaced by Campeonato Brasileiro Série A. In 2001, Atlético Paranaense won its first Campeonato Brasileiro Série A, after defeating São Caetano, and in 2004 was runner-up, with the striker Washington scoring a historical record of 34 goals in a single edition of Campenato Brasileiro.

So far, Atlético has participated in three editions of the Copa Libertadores, in 2000, 2002 and 2005. In the 2000 edition the club was eliminated in the second round and in 2005 Atlético was the runner-up of the competition after being defeated by São Paulo.

A survey made in 2005 by Paraná Pesquisas Institute shown that Atlético Paranaense has the biggest amount of supporters in Curitiba.[1] In 2006 Atlético Paranaense had a good performance in Copa Sul-americana, reaching the semifinals, after defeating excellent teams like River Plate and Nacional-URU. In 2007, the team partnered with the USA club FC Dallas.
