Sport Club Gaúcho , also known as Gaúcho, is a Brazilian soccer club based in Passo Fundo, Brazil.

History[edit]

This club was founded on May 12, 1918[1] to serve the central plateau in the northern region of Rio Grande do Sul. Gaúcho won twice the lower divisions of the Campeonato Gaúcho (the Rio Grande do Sul state league), in 1966 and 1977.

In 1980s the club played in the first division of state league, but, lacking sponsorship, generally finished in the middle rankings.

In 2000, Gaúcho faced financial difficulties. While the club had historically weathered such downsizings in the past, the 2000 difficulties resulted in the loss of access to their stadium. Lacking municipal support and facing mounting debts, the club folded in 2005. Responding to popular support, the club was revived in 2009.
