The Maranhense Football Championship is the competition organized by the Maranhense Football Federation. Namely, in 1907, Nhozito Santos arrived from England, where he went to live for a while, in the city of Liverpool, to learn about textiles.
Nhozito was very fond of football, so he decided to bring cleats, whistles, balls, etc. Therefore, when he arrived in Brazil he arranged a meeting with some of his friends and his brothers. Finally, the day of the meeting arrived and everyone was there, gathered at his family's house in Nhozito.

The theme of the meeting was football.
That day, they had an idea, and soon put it into practice. The idea was to create the “Football Association” in Maranhão.
They decided that the field would be built at the textile factory so they could practice the sport. And that was exactly how the Fabril Athletic Club, the FAC, was born.
The first Maranhense Championship was in 1918. And the winning team was Luso-Brasileiro. With the growth of football in Maranhão, over the years many teams participated in the championship, and this resulted in a wide collection of titles.
The so-called big clubs are Sampaio Correa, Moto Club and Maranhão. Namely, the iron trio from São Luiz are the biggest holders of titles in the Maranhense championship.
