HistoryEdit

Founded on 24 January 1966, Fátima first reached the Liga de Honra in 2007, but only stayed one season there. During the season's Taça da Liga, it managed to oust FC Porto on penalties, before bowing out to another first divisioner, Sporting CP (4–4 on aggregate, and with a 2–1 away triumph).

In 2009, manager Rui Vitória led the side once again to the second level.
