“Some people believe football is a matter of life and death. I’m very disappointed with that attitude. I can assure you that it is much, much more important than that.”
Our club has gone through a number of transformations since it was founded in 1865, when members of the club became the early pioneers of spreading football throughout Portugal, which has now become the principal sport that is played in Portugal.
In 1906, we made history by winning the first ever national football tournament in Portugal (forerunner to the Taça de Portugal), and thereafter until this day, we are widely regarded by many football teams in Portugal as "the source of Portuguese Football', hence our slogan in Portuguese "a fonte do futebol português".

Today, based out of Cascais, Carcavelos and the Jamor Sports Complex (just a few kilometers west of Lisbon), our Football Club operates as a friendly and amateur team, with players that are a mixture of all ages, nationalities and levels, playing 11-a-side and 7-a-side football games against local teams up and down the country, as well as entertaining international Football Tour teams and HMS Ships' Football Teams.
