Esporte Clube XV de Novembro, or XV de Piracicaba as they are usually called, is a Brazilian football team from Piracicaba, São Paulo state, founded in 1913.



During the 1910s, there were two important amateur football clubs in Piracicaba, Vergueirense, owned by Pousa family, and 12 de Outubro, owned by Guerrini family. In October, 1913, the clubs' owners decided to merge both clubs. Captain Carlos Wingeter, of the Brazilian National Guard and who was also a dental surgeon, was appointed as the new club's first president. He accepted the task only if the club was named XV de Novembro (November 15), after the Brazilian Proclamation of Republic day. [1]

On November 15, 1913, the club was founded as Esporte Clube XV de Novembro. [2 ]

In 1943, XV de Piracicaba won its first title, which was the Campeonato Paulista Second Level, finishing one point ahead of Taubaté. [3 ]

In 1976, the club finished second in the Campeonato Paulista Série A1, second only to Palmeiras.

In 1977, the club disputed the Campeonato Brasileiro First Division for the first time, finishing in the 22nd position, ahead of clubs like Internacional, Fluminense and Atlético Paranaense. [4]

In 1979, XV de Piracicaba disputed the Campeonato Brasileiro First Division for the second time, finishing in the 13th position, ahead of clubs such as Fluminense and Botafogo. [5]

In 1995, the club won its first national title, which was the Campeonato Brasileiro Série C, beating Volta Redonda of Rio de Janeiro state in the final. [6 ]



XV de Piracicaba's home stadium is Estádio Barão de Serra Negra, [2 ] inaugurated in 1965, with a maximum capacity of 26,528 people. [7]


XV de Piracicaba's mascot is Nhô Quim, [8 ] created by Edson Rontani, and portraits the typical Piracicaban supporter. [9]
