This research studies the factory club Santa Marina Football Club between the years 1913 to 1933. It was founded by workers at the Santa Marina glass factory, located in the Água Branca region, West Zone of São Paulo. In this investigation, I sought to observe how the social relations between the associated workers and the board influenced the identity of both the club and its members. Therefore, this internship project at Freie Universität Berlin, under the guidance of professor Dr Stefan Rinke, seeks to insert the Santa Marina Football Club into the phenomenon of football internationalization, which occurred at the end of the 19th century and the beginning of the 20th century, so as to understand which of its internal characteristics relate to this process. In addition, I intend to compare Brazilian factory football to German workers' football, especially in the Ruhr Valley. This would allow me to observe characteristics, principles, and values of the Santa Marina Football Club that would not be perceived by the mere observation of Brazilian factory football. During this internship, I intend to visit the Freie Universität Berlin Library, the Ibero-American Institute, and the Staatsbibliothek, as well as the archives of the latter and the Sportsmuseum for periodical analysis.
