Cruzeiro Esporte Clube, commonly known Cruzeiro and referred to as Raposa, is a Brazilian multisport club based in Barro Preto, a bairro in the city of Belo Horizonte. Although they compete in a number of different sports, Cruzeiro is mostly known for its association football team. It plays in the Campeonato Mineiro, the State of Minas Gerais’s premier state league, as well as the Brasileirão, the top tier of the Brazilian football league system. Cruzeiro are one of the only five clubs to have never been relegated, along with São Paulo, Flamengo, Internacional and Santos.
The club was founded on January 2, 1921 by sportsmen from the Italian colony of Belo Horizonte as a result of the political-administrative crisis within Yale Atlético Clube at the time; several members of Yale decided to abandon the poorly-structured club and formed a new one called Societá Sportiva Palestra Italia. As a result of the Second World War, the Brazilian federal government banned the use of any symbols referring to the Axis powers in 1942. The club board members rebaptized the club with the name of a leading national symbol: the Cruzeiro do Sul. Cruzeiro play their home games at the Estádio Governador Magalhães Pinto, better known as the Mineirão, which currently holds up to 64,500 spectators. Cruzeiro’s regular kit colours are blue shirts and white shorts with white socks. Olympikus are the kit manufacturers currently.
Cruzeiro is one of Brazil’s most accomplished clubs, having won the Brasileirão, in 1966, after defeating Santos’ Os Santásticos in the final series, and 2003, obtaining the best campaign in the present format of the competition. Cruzeiro has also won four Copa do Brasil titles and the Campeonato Mineiro 36 times. Cruzeiro has also won the defunct competitions Taça Minas Gerais five times, the Copa dos Campeões Mineiros twice , the Torneio Início 10 times and the Supercampeonato Mineiro once. A Raposa also obtained many international laurels such as two Copa Libertadores, two Supercopa Libertadores, one Recopa Sudamericana, one Copa de Oro and one Copa Master de Supercopa. Cruzeiro is the only Brazilian and South American club to complete the Domestic Treble, a feat accomplished in 2003 after winning the Campeonato Mineiro, the Copa do Brasil and the Brasileirão.
