Londrina Esporte Clube, or Londrina as they are usually called, is a Brazilian football team from Londrina in Paranámarker, founded on April 5, 1956. The club won the Taça de Prata in 1980, won the state championship three times, and competed several times in the Campeonato Brasileiro Série A. Londrina's home is the 45,000-person capacity Café stadiummarker.


Londrina was founded by a group of sportsmen that, after watching a friendly match between Nacional and Vasco da Gama in Rolândia, decided that they would not need to go to Rolândia to watch football. Instead, they founded a club in their own city. The club was founded on April 5, 1956. They chose blue and white to be Londrina's colors.

In 1969, Londrina's two clubs, Londrina Futebol e Regatas and Paraná Esporte Clube merged into Londrina Esporte Clube. Red and white, city of Londrina colors, became the new club's colors. In 1972, Carlos Antônio Franchello returned to the presidency of the club, and restored blue and white as the club's colors.

In 2008, Londrina won the Copa Paraná for the first time, after beating Cianorte in the final. The club also competed in the same season's Recopa Sul-Brasileira. Londrina was eliminated in the Recopa Sul-Brasileira in the semifinals after a penalty shootout, by Brusque.
