On March 11, 1973,[1] the club was founded as Pima Futebol Clube, named after shoe factory Pima. The club was founded to dispute a Catanduva city amateur competition called Liga Catanduvense.[2]

In 1974 and 1975, Pima won the Liga Catanduvense.[2]

In 1976, Pima professionalized its football section and the club was renamed to Grêmio Esportivo Novorizontino.[2] In that year, the club joined the Campeonato Paulista Third Division, and disputed its first official matches.[3]

In 1990, Novorizontino reached the Campeonato Paulista final, against Bragantino, beating clubs like Palmeiras, Guarani and Portuguesa. The final, nicknamed caipira final (final caipira, in Portuguese language),[2] after two draws, was won by Bragantino, due to Bragantino's better campaign.[4]

In 1994, Novorizontino won its only national title, the Campeonato Brasileiro Third Division, after beating Ferroviária in the final. The club was promoted to the following year's second division.[5]

In 1994, the Chedid family assumed the control of the club's football section.[2]

In 1996, the club did not dispute the Campeonato Brasileiro Second Division due to a financial crisis.[2]

On April 26, 1998, Novorizontino disputed its final professional match, against Paraguaçuense at Estádio Municipal Carlos Afine, Paraguaçu Paulista.[2] Paraguaçuense won this Campeonato Paulista A-2 (which is the Campeonato Paulista Second Division) match 4-0 [6]

In 1999, deeply in debt, the club did not pay the Paulista Football Federation fee, so the club was not allowed to dispute the São Paulo state championship, and then its football section was closed.[3]
