Contents

Although it was a Campeonato Brasileiro Série B (Taça de Prata) winner once, Juventus nowadays competes only in tournaments in the state of São Paulo, such as the Campeonato Paulista.

The team typically plays in maroon shirts and white shorts, and is nicknamed Moleque Travesso (the Prankster Boy).

History

Clube Atlético Juventus was founded on April 20, 1924 by Cotonificio Rodolfo Crespi employees, as Extra São Paulo. [1] The team colors were the colors of São Paulo state, black, white and red. [2]

The club changed its name to Cotonifício Rodolfo Crespi Futebol Clube in 1925, [1] and in 1930, the club changed its name again, to Clube Atlético Juventus, [2] because Count Rodolfo Crespi was a supporter of Juventus of Italy, [3] but the team colors are a homage to Italian club Torino Football Club, [4] because Rodolfo Crespi's son, Adriano, was a supporter of the club from Turin. [3]

Pelé states his most beautiful goal was scored at Rua Javari on a Campeonato Paulista match against Juventus on August 2, 1959. [5] As there was no video footage of this match, Pelé asked that a computer animation be made of this specific goal. This animation can be seen on Pelé Eterno, a documentary about his career. [6]

The club won the Copa FPF for the first time in 2007, after defeating Linense in the final, [7] and also competed in that season's edition of Recopa Sul-Brasileira. [8] Juventus was eliminated in the Campeonato Brasileiro Série C 2007's first stage. [9]

The club is nicknamed Moleque Travesso, meaning the Mischievous Boy. The nickname was first used on September 14, 1930, by the journalist Thomaz Mazzoni, after Juventus beat Corinthians 2–1 at Estádio Parque São Jorge, which was Corinthian's home stadium at the time. [3]

Rivals

Juventus biggest rival is Nacional [ citation needed ]; the games between the two clubs are called Juvenal. Because of the poor performances of both teams on their championships, they've been relegated to different divisions and cannot play a match between them, since 2007. However, in 2014 Nacional AC was promoted from Second Division to Division A3, where Juventus has been played for a couple of years leading to a recent edition of the Juvenal in April 2015. Portuguesa is another direct rival of Juventus. Their matches are known as The Immigrants' Derby (Italians vs Portuguese).
