SER Caxias do Sul, also known as Caxias, is a Brazilian football club based in Caxias do Sul, Rio Grande do Sul. Founded in 1934, Caxias currently plays the Brazilian Third Division - Campeonato Brasileiro Série C.

As Brazil has continental proportions, state championships are also highly valued by its population. Caxias won the Campeonato Gaúcho - Rio Grande do Sul State Championship in 2000, and lost the 2012 Final to Sport Club Internacional.

Its fiercest rival is Juventude, the other club based in Caxias do Sul. The local derby is known as Ca-Ju. Grená currently is ranked as the 46th best team in Brazil, according to the Brazilian Football Confederation Ranking.[1]


Caxias was founded on April 10, 1935, as Grêmio Esportivo Flamengo, which had been a fusion of two other teams (Ruy Barbosa and Rio Branco).[2] However the club, as well as Juventude folded due to a financial crisis in the 1960s.[2] Both teams merged into Associação Caxias de Futebol on December 14, 1971.[2] Juventude reestablished itself in 1975, and Grêmio Esportivo Flamengo adopted the name Sociedade Esportiva e Recreativa Caxias do Sul.[2] In 1972, Associação Caxias de Futebol and Grêmio played the first game on color TV in Brazil. The game finished 0-0. The club's greatest feat was the 2000 Campeonato Gaúcho title.[2]
