Campeonato Brasileiro

Overview Honours Roll Team appearances Related trophies Sources Current Season


It is the main tournament for brazilian clubs.
Serie B was the second division until 2005,

The Copa do Brasil was born as an independent competition, but in 2006 it substituted Serie B as second division.
In 2014 the Taça Tupi substituted the Copa do Brasil.

As the official data from 1987 to the 1990's were lost, it is not clear who was the winner in 1987 and 1988.
For 1987 some sources show Alphaville Tenis Clube and some others Pasteur.
For 1988 some sources show Alphaville Tenis Clube and some others Bandeirantes.
