Grêmio Barueri Futebol Ltda., generally known as Grêmio Barueri, or just as Barueri, is a Brazilian football club from Barueri, São Paulo state. The club was formerly known as Grêmio Recreativo Barueri and Grêmio Prudente Futebol Ltda.

The club was founded in 1989, in the city of Barueri, on the north-western outskirts of metropolitan São Paulo. The club and the city of Barueri failed to reach an agreement about training facilities and the concession of the Arena, causing the club to move to Presidente Prudente in the countryside, about 600 km from the state capital. The move was formalized by the end of February 2010, and it was announced that a change of insignia and kit would follow within the next weeks.[1] The club moved back to Barueri in 2011.

The club's home stadium is the Arena Barueri, which has a maximum capacity of about 35,000 spectators.

The club was founded on March 26, 1989 as Grêmio Recreativo Barueri[2] to represent Barueri in several different sports.[3]

Barueri had a sponsorship from Bandeirantes Bank from September, 1997 to June 1998.[3] The club changed sponsors to Mackenzie/Microcamp from August 1998 to May 1999. In 1998 Barueri won the São Paulo State Men's Basketball Championship. Some time later, the club signed a partnership with Vasco da Gama, of Rio de Janeiro.[3]

Barueri signed a sponsorship with Roma Incorporadora in 2000. During this period, the club, which was named Roma Barueri at the time, won the Campeonato Paulista Under-20 in 2000, and the Copa São Paulo de Juniores in 2001, beating São Paulo in the final.[3]

The club professionalized its football team in 2001, and competed the Campeonato Paulista Série B3, finishing in the 14th position.[3]

Barueri won the Campeonato Paulista Série A3 in 2005, beating Palmeiras B in the final.[4]

The club won the Campeonato Paulista Série A2 in 2006, beating Sertãozinho in the final, and winning promotion to the following year's Campeonato Paulista first division.[5] In the same year, Barueri played in the Campeonato Brasileiro Série C for the first time, finishing in fourth place, thus being promoted to the following year's Série B.[6] A fourth place finish in 2008 allowed the team to be promoted to Série A, the top level championship, in the following year.[7]

The club was renamed to Grêmio Prudente Futebol Ltda. on February 26, 2010, after the name change was approved on February 12 by the board of directors and Presidente Prudente's city hall.[1][8] The logo was changed to reflect the new name.[9]

Prudente was relegated to the 2011 Série B on November 14, 2010, after being defeated 2-1 by Atlético Paranaense at the Arena da Baixada, in Curitiba city. The club was also relegated to the Campeonato Paulista Série A2 after a weak performance in the 2011 Campeonato Paulista. Soon after that, a group of Barueri business men bought the club, moving it back to the city, and renamed the club Grêmio Barueri Futebol Ltda..[10]
