Gremio is a Brazilian football club from Porto Alegre.

The historical backdrop of Brazilian football: Gremio

Rio Grande do Sul is the southernmost province of Brazil, the fourth biggest and biggest in the nation. It was at one time the principle field of the ruinous Revolution of Farroupil, the most exceedingly bad polite war ever of. Here they hold their state titles gifts of Brazilian football, Gremio and Internacional, whose incredible encounter (Gre-Nal) is a standout amongst the most noteworthy occasions ever of football.

It must be said that toward the start of the twentieth century football in Brazil was not the most prominent game. So it was in Rio, and in Sao Paulo, so it was in Porto Alegre, where at the beginning of another century, for instance, cycling was prevalent. In 1898, English and German settlers started to play football here, truth be told, as wherever else in Brazil. It was they who on July 19, 1900 made the principal football club in the city, the Sport Club Rio Grande, which for a long time were the main football club in the city and state. At last, on September 15, 1903, individuals from the Radfahrer bike club (driven by Leopoldo Rosenfeld and Hugo Brenner) arrange the Fass-ball Club Porto Alegre. Furthermore, the primary football match-up in Porto Alegre was hung on September 7, 1903 in Farrupiglia Park, where the Rio Grande Sports Club chose to hold a display coordinate with two pieces for the general population so as to acquaint them with this game. The amusement was gone to by a business person from Sorocaba (from Sao Paulo) Candido Dias, an eager football fan: amid a diversion in the wake of hitting one of the players, the ball, which was played by football players, burst. Diash, who dependably conveyed his soccer ball with him, loaned it to nearby players. After the finish of the diversion, Dias welcomed every one of the members to supper, where he welcomed them to talk about the likelihood of making another football crew: this proposition was welcomed with merriment.

On September 15 (as you can see, on the same day, around the same time, the Fassball Club was created) Dias and another 32 people (most of whom were British and German immigrants) gathered in the restaurant of the SalauGrau hotel at Rua Dr. Jose Montauri, 31. Here, at the ceremonial meeting chaired by Francisco Franca, the creation of the Gremio Foot-Ball Club Porto Alegrense was officially proclaimed. Carlos Luis Borer was elected its first president.

His first match, or rather just two matches that were played on the same day, “Gremio” held March 6, 1904 against the club “Fass-Ball Porto Alegre”. By mutual consent of the parties, the winner should have received a so-called Cup Wanderpries. The first trophy in the state was sponsored by the German Bank Brasilianische Bank fur Deutschland. It was decided to hold matches for this trophy about once every half a year between the two oldest clubs in the city (“Rio Grande”, organized by the British, not the Germans, was ignored), based on the same day. The first of these two matches at Campo do Velodromo da Blitz “Gremio” won with a score of 1: 0. Unfortunately, there is no data on who became the author of the first ball in the history of the club (the local newspapers did not write about this either). However, the first trophy itself is still kept in the club’s museum. The second game on the same day, “Gremio” also won 1-0, and won his first trophy. The names of those who played in these two games are known, here is the first composition of “Gremio”: GuilhermeCallfelz, Alberto Knewitz, Alfredo Cattaneo, Jose Musnich, Joao Knewitz, Augusto Koch, Carlos Luis Borer (playing president), Otto Musnich, Fernando Fear. Osvaldo Sibel, Pedro Cleres, JoãoGeske, Pedro Shuk, Joaquim Ribeiro, Jacob Molter, Leopoldo Difenthaller, Guilherme Kremer.

In the same year of 1904 (in September) “Gremio played another game against the Fass-Ball and won 1: 0. At about the same time, at the end of August 1904, Gremio opened its first football arena in Porto Alegre-Baixad: Out of the first 14 matches for TrofeuWanderprise “Gremio” against “Fass-Ball”, having won 9 of them and lost 3, twice (in March 1905 and December 1907) “Gremio” won with a big score 4: 0 and 4: 1.

In addition, friendly matches took place between the clubs, and in 1906, Gremio played twice with Rio Grande, losing 1: 3 in the first game, and tied 3: 3 in the second game. On July 11, 1909, Gremio and Fass-Ball played out a new prize – TacaSportiva, “Gremio” won 5: 1. In the evening of the same day, the club leaders received an invitation to hold a friendly match with a club unknown to the general public called Sport Club Internacional. Yes, it was “Internacional” who conducted training in the RuaArlindo area, who had not played a single official match yet. Thus, it was on July 18, 1909 that the great opposition, known as Gre-Nal, originated. And the very first match ended in a brutal defeat, “Internacional” 0:10. The teams played in the following lineups:

  • “Inter”: Poppe II, Portela, Simone, Vignoles, Pires, Vetternich, Poppe I, Horacio, Cesar, Mendonça, Carvalho
  • Gremio: Callfelz, Deppermann, Becker, Caris, Black, Mostardeiro, Broshado, Grunewald, Moreira, Booth, Schröder

He judged the meeting, which was held on BairroMoinhos de Vento, a German Waldemar Bromberg. The advantage of Gremio in the course of the game is so overwhelming – the ball almost never left half of the Colorado field – that at one of the moment’s goalkeeper GremioGuilhermeCallfelz left the gate and began to talk on the edge of the field with the audience. 5 heads of Bout and 4th Grünewald (another held Moreira) reflected all the giant advantage of Gremio.

By the time of the first Gre-Nala in Porto Alegre, several more football clubs had emerged. Already in November, 1906, the eponymous club appeared in the municipality of Bagé, in April 1907, the Guarani was created there. In October 1908, as a result of the merger of the Club SportivoInternacional and the Football Club, a new club Pelotas was created. In their debut match (October 26, 1909), Pelotas achieved what still no Porto Alegre club could beat Rio Grande. Gremio, for example, lost in May of the same year a friendly match 1: 2. Earlier, in September 1909, the Militar Football Club was founded on the basis of the military college in Porto Alegre, which lasted only two years and was disbanded after the college moved to Rio de Janeiro. Nevertheless, it was Militar that became the first champion of Porto Alegre, whose primacy began to be played out in 1910.
