Volta Redonda Futebol Clube, Volta Redonda or simply by its nickname Voltaço, as they are usually called, is a Brazilian football team from Volta Redonda in Rio de Janeiro, founded on February 9, 1976.

Home stadium is the General Sílvio Raulino de Oliveira stadium, capacity 21,000.



In 1975, the only professional team of the city of Volta Redonda was Clube de Regatas do Flamengo of Volta Redonda (not be confused with Clube de Regatas do Flamengo of Rio de Janeiro city), commonly known as Flamenguinho. In the same year, the states of Rio de Janeiro and Guanabara fused. Because of the fusion of the two states, the Federação Carioca de Futebol ("Carioca Football Federation", Rio de Janeiro city football federation) and Federação Fluminense de Desportos ("Fluminense Sporting Federation", federation of the interior cities of today's Rio de Janeiro state) also fused.

At a meeting between the president of Companhia Siderúrgica Nacional (CSN), Volta Redonda city mayor Nelson Gonçalves, Doctor Guanayr and Admiral Heleno Nunes (president of CBD, Confederação Brasileira de Desportos, "Brazilian Sporting Confederation"), Doctor Guanayr defended the idea that Flamenguinho should represent the city in Campeonato Carioca, but Admiral Heleno Nunes decided that the new team should be named Volta Redonda Futebol Clube and the team colors should be the same colors of Volta Redonda Municipality: black, yellow and white.

On February 9, 1976, Volta Redonda Futebol Clube was founded at the meeting room of the Federação Carioca de Futebol, with the presence of the board of directors of Clube de Regatas Flamengo of Volta Redonda, of Associação Atlética Comercial and representatives of the City Hall of the city of Volta Redonda.
