History

Founded in February 2018 with focus on the youth categories,[1] Azuriz had to register a first team in 2019 due to the Federação Paranaense de Futebol regulations. They finished fourth in the third division of the Campeonato Paranaense, but achieved promotion to the second division after Arapongas and Foz do Iguaçu decided not to play in the 2020 edition.[2]

On 2 December 2020, Azuriz won the second division of the Paranaense after defeating Maringá.[3]
