HistoryEdit

On 20 May 2018 Desportivo das Aves defeated Sporting CP 2–1 and won their first Portuguese Cup, succeeding Benfica as trophy holders. However, Aves did not qualify for the 2018–19 UEFA Europa League group stage because they failed to obtain a license for European competitions.[7]

It underwent many renovations during the new millennium. Especially in 2000, when Desportivo das Aves gained promotion to the Primeira Liga for the second time in their history.[9] When the stadium was built, there were 12,500 seats available, but it currently seats only 8,560 after the club decided to remove chairs.
