1860 Flumineiro are a professional football team hailing from Flumineiro, Queer Poco el Mono Ara. Established in the mid 20th Century by locals working in the Jameson's 1860 Tobacco Company the team became professional in 1972.
The team was originally Jameson's 1860 and didn't adopt the Flumineiro until the team became professional as they looked to establish a fan base and distinguish themselves as coming from Flumineiro.
When the Una Serie was first established 1860 were among the twelve teams in the division below League I, but instantly set about reaching the top flight.
In the first season they finished among the top five, behind eventual league champions Jonastown United. Picking up 69 points. In the second season 1860 managed another 5th place finish this time picking up 71 points. Despite finishing 5th 1860 were came closer to promotion than the previous year coming in behind league champions Salaga F.C by only 5 points. The team exceeded all expectations in the inaugural Trofeo Royal reaching the semi-finals. On their route they beat Una Serie side Real Minanda in round three and beat Minanda's second team Racing Minanda in the quarter finals. As the team dreamed of a fairytale final they were dumped out of the competition in the semi-finals by Una Serie side Barbossa, who would be joining them next season following their relegation.
Buoyed by their run to the semi-finals 1860 finished a record high, coming in fourth in League 1, despite picking up only 69 points. 1860 drew 3-3 with Almondvale in the quarter finals of the Trofeo Royal that season and were eliminated following an extra time goal.
The following season was the team's worst in recent history finishing 10th in League I, five points ahead of Port Los Renato. After the catastrophic drop in form the fans turned on coach Barney Simpson who had taken the team to consecutive top five finishes.
Dennis Vaz Tae
1860 hired Dennis Vaz Tae who had been without a club since being sacked by Skyte City. The choice of coach was questioned by fans who had seen Vaz Tae regularly fail while in charge of Una Serie sides, but the chairman Eliot Peters stood by his decision to hire him.
The decision proved to be a masterstroke as he lead 1860 to their first ever league title. It was fortunate that the side had sealed the league title by week 41 as the team went on to lose their final three games of the season, allowing a rueful Racing Cruzeira to finish 2 points behind them in second. With all their efforts focused on winning promotion it was no surprise when 1860 were dumped out of the Trofeo Royal in round three by Barbossa.
After sealing promotion, the fans expected the side to spend big in order to secure their place in the top league, however the team had little cash to flash and brought in journeyman striker Benito Gabrini, a pair of Warkus internationals and Burchadinger international winger Radoslav Pretiev.
The combination of the 4 new players and the camaraderie around the squad allowed the team to finish 9th in their first season in the league. The team only won a quarter of their 44 league games, but managed to outplace Villa Ortiz and Salaga F.C as well as relegated Real Minanda. The points difference between the bottom 4 was small to say the least, but Vaz Tae and the fans considered the 9th place finish a triumph - even if they were 9 points behind Athletic Khaldoon. In the Trofeo Royal 1860 eliminated League I strugglers Sunset Village before falling by the wayside at round 4 to Skyte City.
The following seasons the camaraderie and spirit around Estadio Guiza proved not to be enough to keep the team afloat in the Una Serie and the team were relegated with only 38 points. 1860's awful season was compounded with a defeat at League I Garrincha in the Trofeo Royal. Despite the terrible season and the fans turning on one time hero Vaz Tae, the chairman and manager insisted they would stick together and return to the Una Serie.
And return is exactly what they did, winning the League I title for the second time, 6 points clear of Real Minanda. To ensure their survival second time around, 1860 picked up some new players, with youngsters coming from Jesselton. 1860 finished 10th, winning just over a quarter of their league games, and well above the relegation zone as Villa Ortiz bit the bullet and went down with a measly 25 points. 1860 went one better the following season, finishing a record equalling 9th place in the Una Serie. That was as good as it got for 1860 who were relegated after three seasons back in the Una Serie. The relegation was Vaz Tae's final act in charge of 1860 after 7 seasons at the helm.
Return to League I
After the subsequent relegation and sacking of Vaz Tae, 1860 had to install a new full time manager and opted for former Garrincha F.C and Port Los Renato manager Orson Wight. Wight's first season in charge was mediocre as the team stuttered to a 9th place finish. Although 1860 did surprise Una Serie giants Royal Khaldoon with a win over them in the Trofeo Royal. After taking them to extra time following a dramatic 2-2 draw at the Royal Stadium, the League I side eliminated Royal in a penalty shootout, with Akbarabad keeper Rashid Hossain the hero, saving 4 of the Royal penalties.
Season 13 was a better showing from 1860 who narrowly missed out on a third League I title, finishing third, two points behind champions Belle-Isle on Sea, however after such a close battle, manager Wight was signed by Villa Ortiz, leaving his assistant Calib Mahoney to take control. Mahoney's first attempt at leading 1860 back to the Una Serie was unsuccessful as the team finished 6th, missing out on SBCC football.
