History

Paranaense was born as the result of a merge between two older Curitiba teams, Internacional-PR and América-PR. The merger was announced on March 21, 1924 and formalized five days later, on March 26, when the club changed its name and its colors; the new board of directors also assumed the administration of the club. The chosen club's field was Internacional's old field, called Água Verde.

The club's first match was played on April 6, and the first competitive match was played on April 20, when Paranaense beat arch-rival Coritba 2-0. By participating in several championships with a good team, the club won its first state championship title in 1925, establishing the club as one of the main clubs in its state. In 1934, Paranaense acquired the groundplot where the Arena da Baixada is located.

In 1949, the club won its ninth Paranaense State Championship, which gave them the nickname of Furacão (meaning hurricane, in English) - attributed to the club for its great campaign in the competition. Since then, Furacão has been the club's nickname.

In 1995 after Coritiba beat Paranaense 5-1, a new board of directors took over the control of the club, and started a strategic project called "Atlético Total".

C.A. Paranaense was the first Paranaense club to participate in the Torneio Roberto Gomes Pedrosa, today known as the Campeonato Brasileiro Série A. In 2001, Paranaense won its first Campeonato Brasileiro Série A, after defeating São Caetano; and in 2004 was runner-up, with the striker Washington scoring a record 34 goals in a single edition of the Campenato Brasileiro.

So far, Paranaense has participated in three editions of the Copa Libertadores, in 2000, 2002 and 2005. In the 2000 edition the club was eliminated in the second round and in 2005 Paranaense was the runner-up of the competition after being defeated by São Paulo.

A survey taken in 2005 by Paraná Pesquisas Institute showed that Paranaense has the largest amount of supporters in Curitiba.[2]

In 2006 Clube Atlético Paranaense had a good performance in Copa Sul-americana, reaching the semifinals, after defeating excellent teams like CA River Plate of Argentina and Nacional of Uruguay. In 2007, the team partnered with the American MLS club FC Dallas. In 2010 they also announced a partnership with Vitesse Arnhem in Holland.

Stadium

Home stadium is the Estádio Joaquim Américo, built in 1914 and renovated in 1999, traditionally known as Arena da Baixada but more recently renamed Kyocera Arena, capacity 25,272. The contract with Kyocera that gave the Stadium the naming rights expired in 2008 and it was not renewed and no new partnership was announced. The stadium went back to his original name Arena da Baixada.

Paranaense has completed the fourth stand of Arena da Baixada in preparation for the 2014 World Cup. Money from companies came to finish the stadium to 2014 FIFA World Cup.[3]
