Clube Atlético Juventus

The Clube Atlético Juventus (Latin for Youth), usually known simply as Juventus, is a traditional Brazilian football club based in Mooca, a São Paulo neighborhood. Although it was a Campeonato Brasileiro A-2 (Taça de Prata) winner once, Juventus nowadays competes only in São Paulo tournaments, like Campeonato Paulista.

The team typically plays in maroon shirts and white shorts, and is nicknamed Moleque Travesso (the Pranky Boy).

History

Clube Atlético Juventus was founded on April 20, 1924 by Cotonificio Rodolfo Crespi employees, as Extra São Paulo. The team colors were the colors of São Paulo state, black, white and red.

In 1925, the club changed its name to Cotonifício Rodolfo Crespi Futebol Clube, and in 1930, the club changed its name again, to Clube Atlético Juventus, because Count Rodolfo Crespi was a sympathizer of Juventus of Italy, but the team colors are a homage to Italian club Fiorentina, because Rodolfo Crespi's son, Adriano was a supporter of the club from Florence.

Pelé states his most beautiful goal was scored at Rua Javari on a Campeonato Paulista match against Juventus on August 2, 1959. As there was no video footage of this match, Pelé asked that a computer animation be made of this specific goal. This animation can be seen on Pelé Eterno, a documentary about his career.

In 2007, the club won the Copa FPF for the first time, after defeating Linense in the final, and also competed in that season's edition of Recopa Sul-Brasileira. Juventus was eliminated in the Campeonato Brasileiro Série C 2007's first stage.
