Oeste Futebol Clube, or Oeste as they are usually called, is a Brazilian football team from Itápolis in São Paulo state, founded on January 25, 1921.[1] Their home stadium is the Idenor Picardi Semeghini, which has a maximum capacity of 16,143 people.[2] They play in black and red shirts, black shorts and red socks.


The club was founded on January 25, 1921 by two brothers from Rio de Janeiro.[1] One was a supporter of Flamengo, while the other was a supporter of Fluminense.[1] A training match against an amateur club from the municipality of Fazenda Itaquerê was set to decide if the club would be named Flamengo or Fluminense.[1] With a victory, the club would be named Flamengo, while if defeated the club would be named Fluminense.[1] The club beat their opponents 3–0, but adopted the name Oeste Futebol Clube, after the Center-West region of São Paulo state, while Flamengo's colors were chosen.[1]

The club competed in the Campeonato Paulista Série A1 for the first time in 2004, after winning the Série A2 in the previous season.[3] The club returned to the Série A1 in 2009, after being defeated by Santo André in the Série A2 final in 2008.[4] Oeste won the 2012 Série C after beating Icasa in the final.[5]


The club's mascot is a jaguar, named after one of the city's main rivers, Rio da Onça (Onça River), onça is Portuguese for jaguar.[6]


Oeste plays its home games at Idenor Picardi Semeghini, located in Itápolis.[2] The stadium has a maximum capacity of 16,143 people, and was inaugurated on October 20, 1928.[2]
