Associação Desportiva Ferroviária Vale do Rio Doce, usually known as Desportiva Ferroviária, or simply as Desportiva (or as Desportiva-ES), is a traditional Brazilian football club from Cariacica, Espírito Santo state.
On July 7, 1963, the club was founded as Associação Desportiva Ferroviária Vale do Rio Doce, after Vale do Rio Doce, Ferroviário-ES, Cauê, Guarany-ES, Valeriodoce-ES and Cruzeiro-ES fused. These clubs were formed by Companhia Vale do Rio Doce railway employees. Companhia Vale do Rio Doce encouraged the clubs' fusion. In 1964, the club won its first professional title, the Campeonato Capixaba. In 1974, Desportiva competed in the Série A for the first time. The club finished in the 34th position. In 1980, the club competed again in the Campeonato Brasileiro Série A, finishing in the 15th place. That was the club's all-time best campaign in the competition. In 1993, Desportiva competed in the Série A for the last time. The club finished in the 29th position. On April 19, 1999, the club became a private company, and changed its name to Desportiva Capixaba. The senior partner was Frannel Distribuidora de Combustível, later replaced by Grupo Villa-Forte due to Frannel's bankruptcy. In November 2010, former soccer player Robson Santana was elected by club members as president and a new direction was established in the club. On April 8, 2011, the club was renamed back to Associação Desportiva Ferroviária Vale do Rio Doce. In 2013, Desportiva Capixaba won its last title, the Campeonato Capixaba, after beating Aracruz in the final.
