Fênix Tricolor – a phoenix rising from the ashes
In 1931, football players from two Brazilian clubs came together to found the "Esporte Clube Bahia". In their first year of play, the club took home the Torneio Inicio and Bahia State Championship, and so began their epic winning streak. The club’s home field was Estádio Fonte Nova from 1951 to 2007, but when part of the stadium collapsed, the club temporarily played at the Estádio de Pituaçu. In 2013 their original stadium was rebuilt as Arena Fonte Nova. Despite their unabashed spirit, the club was unfortunately relegated to Série B in 2003; two years later they were demoted yet again, to Série C. Despite winning several games at the beginning of their third-tier season, they needed to win their last game of the third stage in order to move on. It came down to the wire – but in the final moments of the match they scored the winning point. That epic sports moment is known as the "Fênix Tricolor": the team was viewed as a phoenix rising. Two years later the club was pulled back up to Série B, and they were back to Série A by 2010. But even when the club was playing in the third tier they gathered the largest crowds in Brazilian football! Over 40,000 fans purchased tickets to see the Tricolor Supermen play – for every match.
