Sampaio Corrêa Futebol Clube, usually known as Sampaio Corrêa, is a Brazilian association football club from São Luís, Maranhão state, founded on March 25, 1923.

The club's colors are yellow, green and red. Sampaio Corrêa's nickname is Bolivianos (meaning Bolivians) because its colors are similar to the Bolivian ones. The club is also nicknamed Tricolor de Aço (meaning Steel Tricolour). The club's mascot is a shark.


On March 25, 1923, the club was founded as Associação Sampaio Corrêa Futebol Clube. Abrahão Andrade was the Sampaio Corrêa's first president.
