There was also a state of Rio de Janeiro (corresponding to the countryside of the current Rio de Janeiro state), which never won the Brazilian Championship. In 1960, the former Distrito Federal was renamed to Guanabara state and the recently inaugrated city of Brasília became the new Distrito Federal, which never won the Brazilian Championship. Finally, in 1975, the states of Guanabara and Rio de Janeiro were merged, becoming the current state of Rio de Janeiro, which won the Brazilian Championship of 1987.
