The history of Paulistano begins at the turn of the nineteenth century, when a group of young people had the idea of founding a genuinely Brazilian club, in contrast to the existing ones at the time, of English or German origin. The official foundation was on December 29, 1900.
The Club had its first headquarters on Rua da Consolação, where the Velodrome was located. At the time, cycling, rowing on the river Tietê and golf on Morro dos Ingleses were the most popular sports in São Paulo. The aim of the new club was to promote soccer in the Velodrome, which idea was successful in the first 15 years of history of CAP.
In 1915, the place was expropriated to build Rua Nestor Pestana, where Teatro Cultura Artística is currently located. Club Athletico Paulistano moved to a new place. On December 29, 1917 its current head office was inaugurated between Rua Honduras and Rua Estados Unidos on Jardim América.
