About SC Olhanense

Sporting Clube Olhanense is a Portugal sports club from Olhão, Algarve.

Its Association football team was founded on 27 April 1912, and currently plays in the Primeira Liga, holding home matches at Estádio José Arcanjo, with a 11,600-seat capacity.

Brief history

Olhanense became the first team from the Algarve region to reach the Primeira Liga, after winning the Algarve Football Association in 1941. Among its achievements was a fourth place finish in the 1945–46 Primeira Liga, and the title of Portuguese Champion in the 1923–24 Campeonato de Portugal, at that time the most important national competition; in 1951, after ten consecutive seasons, the club returned to the Liga de Honra.

Having been out of the top division since 1975, and after the relegation of neighbouring S.C. Farense to the lower leagues (including regional levels), Olhanense became the region's most important team, competing for the honour with Portimonense S.C.. In May 2009, after beating Gondomar S.C. 1–0, it 2008–09 Liga de Honra after a 34-year absence, led by former F.C. Porto Defender (association football) Centre back Jorge Costa.
