HistoryEdit

After several years in the second division, Naval first promoted to the first level in 2005, after finishing in second position behind F.C. Paços de Ferreira. In its first season in the top flight, the club finished in 13th position, finally moving up to 12th after the resolutions on the "Mateus Affair", which involved Gil Vicente F.C. and C.F. Os Belenenses.

In the following three years, Naval ranked between places 11–13, also reaching the Taça de Portugal quarter-finals twice. In 2009–10, former Sporting CP, FC Porto and Portugal national team great Augusto Inácio led the Figueira da Foz team to its best season ever, an eight-place finish in the league and the semi-finals of the domestic cup, a 1–3 aggregate loss against G.D. Chaves.

Naval returned to division two at the end of the 2010–11 season, after two coaching changes. Highlights included a 2–1 home win against S.L. Benfica and a 3–3 draw at Sporting CP.

In September 2017 Naval ceased its existence due to financial problems. All the teams and activities were "transferred" to a new club - Naval 1893, created by former Naval leadership.[1]
