When Olímpia Futebol Clube was founded ?

Olímpia Futebol Clube was founded on 5 December 1946

In 1946 the glorious Olímpia Futebol Clube appeared. On December 5, 1946, Olympia appeared. Through Dr. Orlando Lopes, already known in the sports circles of Olímpia, for his work and dedication he assumed the presidency of the Atlética Olímpia Association. As a first step, he extinguished the name A.A. and placed OLÍMPIA FUTEBOL CLUBE, definitively and officially adopting the blue and white colors, which remains today.

first team of Olímpia Futebol Clube

In 1953, the city of Olympia was 50 years old, great preparations were scheduled to commemorate the city’s half centenary. Olímpia FC, unable to compete in the 2nd Division, would fall to the 3rd. To celebrate the Anniversary of the city, the team from S.E.Palmeiras, from the Capital, came to Olímpia for a friendly game, the score 2×1 for Verdão.

In 1957, Olímpia FC became champion of “Sector 33”, the OFC competed with unusual brilliance, the F.P.F. “third party” event, divided into sectors. He was the legitimate champion of his series with a great campaign. He just didn’t ascend to the Second Division, because he lost to Fernandópolis. The count was 2×1 for the opponent.

It was a brilliant year, in 1959, the championship played by Olímpia FC. The crowd returned to Tereza Breda Stadium in large numbers. The Alvi-celeste was a steamroller, beating the teams, being champion of the “Série Brigadeiro Faria Lima”, and competing for the spot for the second against A.A. Votuporanguense on a neutral field, a game in which Olympia lost 2-1 turn and again said goodbye to the dream of access.

In 1961, Olímpia was champion of the “Série Cafeeira”, great stars that, added to the excellent existing values, would take alvi-celeste to a brilliant campaign, where he would again be the champion of his series, called “CAFEEIRA”. Again, the final would be against Votuporanga’s team, only this time, the victory was 2-1 of the Olympians.

The year 1978 arrives, a tragic year in the history of Olympian football, the end of Olympia occurs, the Alvi-celeste is excluded from the F.P.F.

In 1985, the OFC resurfaces.

In 1986, Olímpia was champion of the 1st round, reaching 15 points in 9 games in a campaign considered excellent, in the second round the OFC was the runner-up, classified for the 3rd Phase “Group V”, together with the West of Itápolis and São Simão. By the difference of just 1 point, the alvi-celeste was disqualified.

In 1988 with Olímpia FC in “Intermediate Division”, making an excellent campaign, he won the title of Champion of the 1st Round of “Série E”, Group 3, the club together with Barretos reach the title of their series, with 33 points won and also the title of runner-up of the second. The classification game for the Intermediate was in Pirassununga against Pirassununguense, 1×0 for the OFC, a real crowd waited on the city’s clover, the arrival of the blue and white delegation, with fireworks and everything.

A year later, in 1991, Olímpia disputes the First Division, in the first match Olímpia plays against São Paulo in Olímpia, a 1-1 draw. OFC- Toni, Eduardo, Juninho Fonseca, France and Ailton; César Ferreira, Jânio e Bandeira; Cassinho ( Castro ), Carlão and Marco Antonio Cipó. São Paulo FC – Zetti, Cafu, Antônio Carlos, Ronaldão and Vítor; Amilton, Müller, Elivelton; Cláudio and Raí.

In the following years, Olympia almost always experienced difficulties and in 1996, after a bad campaign in the A-2 series, Olympia was relegated to the Third Division ( Series A-3 ).

In 1997, with a young and modest cast, and with a very good campaign, the team arrived at the final Quadrangular of the A-3 series where only two teams went up to the A-2 series, Olímpia, São Caetano, Mirassol, União Barbarense, fought for access, for Alvi-celeste there was only 2 points to access, with Mirassol champion, vice the Union, 3rd Olympia and 4th São Caetano.

1999 was once again a year of bad campaign, Olympia escapes from the Fourth Division ( B-1 ) in the last round in Itápolis, he needed to win and he was losing 1×0 to 35 of the second half, when the miracle happened the OFC turned the game over and won 2×1, managing to stay in the A-3 series.

In 2000, after getting a strong sponsorship, Olímpia with a wonderful campaign became champion of the Paulista Series A-3. Then he disputes the A-2 series in the same year, leaving the finals in the last round. Still in 2000, the João Havelange Cup ( Brazilian Championship Series C ), another excellent campaign the team reached the Semi-Final, getting close to qualifying for the Final Octaves of the First Division of the Brazilian that year, and still winning a place in Serie B of the Brazilian Championship.

In 2001, alvi-celeste hit the post and just did not gain access to the First Division of the Paulista Championship because it failed to add a point in the running points event. With the expansion of Paulistão to 20 teams, five A-2 Series teams would ascend to the A-1. Olympia reached sixth and finished the championship just one point behind rival America, which in turn gained access.

After competing in the Paulista Championship of Series A-2 for seven consecutive years, Olympia carried out a bad campaign in 2006 and was relegated to Series A-3, considered the third division of São Paulo football. In this time interval, the Blue Rooster carried out average campaigns always fighting for the intermediate phase of the classification, time fighting not to fall, time fighting to classify among the finalists, but without any prominence, executed for the 2003 FPF Cup, in which Olímpia carried out a great campaign, being eliminated in the quarter-finals for Ituano, who had been Paulista Champion of the A-1 Series the previous year. The highlight of the team was striker Lúcio Olmos, who scored 16 goals, becoming the greatest top scorer in Olympia in the same season.

2007 will also be marked in the memory of all Olympians. Once again, after almost not competing in the championship and almost ending its activities, Olímpia Futebol Clube wins one of the most important titles in its history: the Paulista Champion of the A-3 Series. Even forming a good team, many did not believe in the team that was the last to qualify for the second phase, but the first to guarantee access. The alvi-celeste still left heavy opponents like Ferroviária and XV de Piracicaba. In the final, Galo Azul took down Atlético Monte Azul, away from home and saw a vibrant and passionate crowd waiting for the team to arrive at the city’s clover. The base team was: Douglas; Gil, Márcio, Rafael Silva and Edson Paraná; André Oliveira, Fabrício, Dobrada and Rafael Ipuã; Paulinho Piracicaba and Alexandre Bortolato; the cast also included: Igor, Diego,Rafael Gomes, Élton, Calil, Rafinha, Régis, Baeza, Aléssio, goalkeeper Fabrício and top scorer Bispo; the coach was Carlos Rossi.

2008 was a year of excitement for the Olympian fan. After the previous year’s title and a major campaign in the FPF Cup, held in the second half, having been eliminated in the final stage against Juventus, the Blue Rooster had everything to have a great season. However, even with the base maintained and the hiring of good reinforcements, the team did not succeed on the field and even with a good start it ended up being relegated to the A-3 Series of the Paulista Championship.

In 2010, Olympia had what can be considered its worst year in history. The team reached rock bottom with the relegation to the fourth division ( Serie B of the Paulista Championship ). It was undoubtedly the worst moment of the club since its resurgence in 1985. In 2011, competing in the fourth division for the first time, Galo Azul even had a good campaign and reached the final quadrangular, but was disqualified.
