Futebol Clube do Porto
FC Porto was founded in September of 1893 by Antonio Nicolau d’Almeida, he dropped the project in 1894 due to family reasons. The team went on hiatus until 1906 when José Monteiro da Costa who had recently been to England, fascinated by football, decided to bring the club back along with some friends.
So far, Porto has had four stadiums, the first one was called: “Campo da Rua da Raínha” in 1906, the second one was “Campo da Constituição” in 1912 with better facilities. The third stadium was made when FC Porto had already proved itself, having already plenty of supporters and cups, not only in football but also in other sports, the stadium was called “Estádio das Antas”(1952), and it was in this stadium that Porto lived most of its success so far, which includes inumerous League Titles, Portuguese Cups, Portuguese Supercups and even the most important football trophy, the Champions League trophy, back in the day known as European Champions Cup, most of this titles were under the direction of Jorge Nuno Pinto da Costa, whereas these days (2008) is still in charge of the club, having collected the support of every single Porto fan, due to his management skills and brilliant negotiation tactics, an unusual sense of humour and a fantastic way of dealing with the press and his haters, Pinto da Costa, the FC Porto chairman for 26 years, was recently elected for two more , making him, the longest time chairman in a professional team, not only in Portugal but also worldwide.
Besides football, Porto is also known across Europe for its Roller Hockey team, Basketball and Handball team as well. With less success, Porto also has Athletics, Pool, Beach Soccer, Gymnastics, Karate and Sport Fishing.
