Full Name: Sport Club Corinthians Paulista
Official Website: corinthians.com.br
Named in honor of the early English powerhouse Corinthians, who were touring Brazil near the time of the club's creation. The club was founded as a 'popular' club open to all Brazilians, not only the English immigrants and English descendants who were the main engines of Brazilian football at the time. Original colors were pink shirts and black shorts, similar to the English Corinthians but the colors continually faded to white in the wash and they decided to change their shirt colors to white. Most popular club in São Paulo, second-most popular in the country. The Timão nickname is a reference to the rudder in the club's emblem, although it is often thought to mean 'Big Team'.
