Sport Club Corinthians Paulista (Brazilian Portuguese: [isˈpɔʁtʃi ˈklubi kʊˈɾĩtʃɐ̃s pawˈɫistɐ]) is a Brazilian multi-sport club based in Tatuapé, São Paulo. Although they compete in a number of different sports, Corinthians is mostly known for its professional association football team.

The football team currently plays in the Campeonato Brasileiro Série A, the top tier of the Brazilian football, as well as in the Campeonato Paulista Série A1, the first division of the traditional in-state competition.

Founded in 1910 by five railway workers, inspired by the performances of London-based club Corinthian Football Club, Corinthians since then became one of the most successful Brazilian clubs, having won the national title on six as well as three Copa do Brasil trophies and a record 27 state championships. In 2000 the club won the inaugural FIFA Club World Cup as the host nation's representative, repeating the feat in 2012 after winning the Copa Libertadores de América for the first time.

Since 2014, Corinthians plays its home matches at the Arena Corinthians, one of the venues in the 2014 FIFA World Cup, having hosted 6 matches during the tournament, including the opening match on 12 June 2014.

The club's home kit traditionally features white shirts and black shorts, accompanied by white socks, since 1920. Their traditional crest was introduced in 1939, by modernist painter Francisco Rebolo featuring the São Paulo state flag in a shield, two oars and an anchor (representing the club's early success in nautical sports). They hold many long-standing rivalries, most notably against Palmeiras and São Paulo.
