Sport Club Corinthians Paulista (Brazilian Portuguese: ), commonly known as Corinthians and nicknamed Timão (), is a Brazilian multisport club based in Tatuapé, São Paulo. Although they compete in a number of different sports, Corinthians is mostly known for its association football team. It plays in the Campeonato Paulista, the state of São Paulo's premier state league, as well as in the Campeonato Brasileiro Série A, the top tier of the Brazilian football league system.

The club was founded in 1910 by five railway workers from the district of Bom Retiro, who became impressed by the performances of London-based club Corinthian Football Club, electing Miguel Battaglia as the club's first president. Since then, Corinthians became one of Brazil's most successful clubs, having won the Brasileirão on five occasions. Corinthians also contain in their laurels three Copa do Brasil trophies, one Supercopa do Brasil, two FIFA Club World Cup, one Copa Libertadores and one Recopa Sudamericana. They have also won the Paulistão 27 times and the Torneio Rio – São Paulo on five occasions, being the record-holder as the most successful club in those competitions. The club managed to perform a double in 1999, winning both the Paulistão and the Brasileirão.
