São Paulo Futebol Clube (Portuguese pronunciation: ), simply known as São Paulo, is a professional football club, based in São Paulo, Brazil.

São Paulo FC is the most successful club in Brazilian Football with 18 titles overall. The only Brazilian side three times World Champion.

The club plays in the Paulistão (the State of São Paulo's premier state league), as well as the Brasileirão (the top tier of the Brazilian football league system), being one of the only five clubs to have never been relegated, along with Santos, Flamengo, Internacional and Cruzeiro. As for international titles, São Paulo is the most successful team from Brazil, with 12 international titles. It is also one of the most successful South American clubs in terms of overall titles, having won 21 state titles, six Brasileirão titles, three Copa Libertadores titles, one Copa Sudamericana, one Supercopa Sudamericana, one Copa CONMEBOL (the precursor of the current Copa Sudamericana), two Recopa Sudamericanas, two Intercontinental Cups and one FIFA Club World Cup.

Founded in 1930, São Paulo was an inaugural member of the Clube dos 13 group of Brazil's leading football clubs. The club's most consistent spell of success came in the 1990s, under coach Telê Santana, when it won three state titles, one national championship, two Copa Libertadores, two Recopa Sudamericanas, two Intercontinental Cups, one Supercopa Sudamericana, one Copa CONMEBOL, one Copa Masters CONMEBOL.

São Paulo is the third best-supported club in Brazil, with over 17 million supporters. The team's traditional home kit is a white shirt with two horizontal stripes (one red and one black), white shorts and white socks. Its home ground is the 67,052-seater Morumbi football stadium in São Paulo, where it has played since 1947. The stadium was the venue for the Copa Libertadores finals of 1992, 1993, 1994, 2000, 2003, 2005 and 2006. São Paulo is the second richest Brazilian football club in terms of revenue, with an annual revenue of $111.9m (€78.2m), and the second nation's most valuable club, worth over $353.4m (€246.9m) in 2011.

Stadium or Home

The Estádio Cícero Pompeu de Toledo, widely known as Morumbi (Brazilian Portuguese: ), is a football stadium located in the Morumbi district in São Paulo, Brazil. It is the home of São Paulo Futebol Clube and its formal name honors Cícero Pompeu de Toledo, who was São Paulo Futebol Clube's chairman during most of the stadium construction and died before its inauguration. Morumbi is the largest privately owned stadium in Brazil. The stadium was designed by the architect João Batista Vilanova Artigas.
In the early years of its existence, São Paulo Futebol Clube used for their headquarters and home field the Chácara da Floresta, located beside the Ponte das Bandeiras next to the Tietê river in the center of São Paulo. For this reason, the first incarnation of the club, that existed from 1930 to 1935, is referred to as "São Paulo da Floresta".

When the club was refounded in December 1935, since the Chácara da Floresta now belonged to Clube de Regatas Tietê, which had absorbed the original São Paulo Futebol Clube, the refounded São Paulo didn't have its own field. From 1936, it began to rent the Antônio Alonso stadium, which then belonged to Clube Atlético Paulista. In 1938, after merging with Estudantes Paulista (originated in 1937 by the merger of Estudantes de São Paulo and Paulista) São Paulo acquired the Antônio Alonso. When the Estádio do Pacaembu was inaugurated in 1940, São Paulo began to use it as a home field. the Antônio Alonso stadium was sold to Juventus in 1942.

In 1944, São Paulo bought a piece of ground called Canindé, which was only used as a headquarters and training location. The area was too small for the construction of a large stadium, so studies were done to find another home within the city of São Paulo.

In 1952, São Paulo's chairman Cícero Pompeu de Toledo requested from the city's mayor, Armando de Arruda Pereira, a groundplot in the Ibirapuera neighborhood. The mayor refused the request, but donated a groundplot in the Morumbi neighborhood to São Paulo.
