About FC de Vizela
Futebol Clube de Vizela is a Portugal Association football club based in the Vizela Municipality, Braga District. Founded in 1939, it currently plays in the Portuguese Second Division, holding home games at Estádio do Futebol Clube de Vizela
, with a 3,500-spectators capacity.
Vizela joined the Braga Football Association on 1 August 1940. Twenty-six years later, the first trophy came, with the conquest of the Taça de Campeão Nacional
after defeating Tramagal Sport União (5–3). The club spent the vast majority of his early years in the Portuguese Second Division.
In 1984, Vizela promoted for the first time in its history to the Primeira Liga, but this spell only lasted 1984–85 Primeira Liga. Shortly after, the team was again in the third level, only returning in the 2000's.
Again in the "silver category" of Portuguese football, Vizela finished third in the 2007–08 Liga de Honra, falling just one point short of a promotion. In 2008–09 Liga de Honra, it finished in 10th position, but was relegated due to the Apito Dourado
