History

On January 14, 1981,[1] the club was founded by Hermínio Ometto, who was the owner of Usina São João (meaning Saint John's Plant). The club was founded in the same place of Usina São João, after it closed [2]

In 1987, União São João won the Campeonato Paulista Special Division, beating São José in the final. The club was promoted to the following year's first level.[3]

In 1989, União São João disputed the Campeonato Brasileiro Série B for the first time, finishing in the 29th position.[5] In the same year, the club played four friendly matches in Japan. The club won two matches and drew the other two.[6]

The 1993 Campeonato Brasileiro Série A was expanded to 32 clubs, so, União São João was promoted to dispute the competition. The club finished in its all-time best position in that competition, finishing in the 12th position.[7]

In 1996, the club won its second national championship, the Campeonato Brasileiro Série B. In the competition's final four, União São João finished ahead of América de Natal, Náutico and Londrina. The club was promoted to the following year's Série A.[10]
