The club was founded on June 1, 1914 by the Uruguayan Bertoni brothers, after watching a game between America and a Campos combined team, won by 3-1 by the former. The club was originally planned to be named América Football Club, after America of Rio de Janeiro.
In 2002, Americano won both the Taça Guanabara and the Taça Rio, but was defeated by Fluminense in both legs (2-0 and 3-1) of the Campeonato Carioca final. In 2004, Americano reached the final four of the Brazilian Série C, but finished in the third position, after União Barbarense and Gama, and was not promoted to the Série B.
Americano's stadium is Estádio Godofredo Cruz, with a maximum capacity of 25,000 people.
The nine red stars on Americano's logo represent the nine consecutive Campeonato da Cidade de Campos titles. The golden star represents the 1987, Brazilian Third Division title. The club's official anthem was composed by Pereira Júnior.
