Juventude reestablished itself in 1975, and Grêmio Esportivo Flamengo adopted the name Sociedade Esportiva e Recreativa Caxias do Sul. In 1972, Associação Caxias de Futebol and Grêmio played the first game on color TV in Brazil. The game finished 0–0. The club's greatest feat was the 2000 Campeonato Gaúcho title.
