The club was created in 1887, when Clube Atlético de Coimbra (founded in 1861) and Academia Dramática (founded in 1837) merged. In 1938–39, the football team won their first Portuguese Football Cup, the first under the tournament's current name and a feat they would repeat in 2011–12. In 1966–67, they achieved their highest position of runner-up in the Primeira Liga table.
