About Freamunde

Sport Clube Freamunde is a Portugal Association football team based in Freamunde, Porto District. Founded in 1933, it currently plays in the Liga de Honra, holding home games at Campo SC Freamunde, with a capacity of 5,000 spectators.

José Bosingwa, who later achieved fame with F.C. Porto, Chelsea F.C. and the Portugal national football team, started his professional career here.

History

Freamunde started when Cardinal (Catholicism) António Ribeiro watched a group of children playing in the streets of Freamunde, and decided to start a club, arranging for kits gratuitously. It was first called Freamunde Sport Clube.

Another clergyman, Padre Castro, was the main responsible for the club's early professional foundations. In 1933, the team started playing matches in a field owned by him, the Campo do Carvalhal. Two years later, the club started competing in Liga Invicta - known in later years as the Liga de Honra - doning the colours which would last for the following decades: blue shirt and socks and white shorts. The league folded however two years later, and the team started playing in Campeonato da Promoção, after joining Porto's Football Association.

In 1944, Freamunde's first status were outlined. Five years later, Castro died. In 1999, after two consecutive promotions, the club first reached the new second level, lasting two seasons, and returning again for 2007–08 Liga de Honra, after being crowned champions of the Portuguese Second Division (Northern Zone). During the early 1990s/early 2000s, Jorge Regadas served as team manager for several seasons.

As of 14 July, 2011.
