Club de Regatas Vasco da Gama, usually called Vasco da Gama or simply Vasco, is a Brazilian multisports club from Rio de Janeiro in Brazil that was founded on August 21, 1898.
Vasco is best known for its soccer team which now campaigns in the Brazilian Série A after being promoted from Série B at the end of the 2009/10 season. The four-time Série A champions and 1998 Copa Libertadores winners finished last season’s campaign in 2nd place and won the 2011 Copa do Brasil.
