S.H. Benfica (Huambo)

  (Redirected from Estrela Vermelha do Huambo)

Sport Huambo e Benfica, originally Sport Nova Lisboa e Benfica or Benfica de Nova Lisboa, later renamed as Sport Huambo e Benfica or Benfica do Huambo or Mambroa, is a football club from Huambo, Angola. The club was established as the then Nova Lisboa affiliate of S.L. Benfica of Portugal, and shares the same colours. The logo is also very similar to the Portuguese one.[1]

In 1972, the club won the Angolan provincial football championship.

Following the country's independence in 1975 and in an attempt by the communist regime to erase all traces of colonial rule, the club which has been created as an affiliate to S.L. Benfica was ordered to change its name and therefore became known as Estrela Vermelha do Huambo (Huambo Red Star) as it participated in the first edition of the country's post-independence premier league and later on to Mambroa. It was not until the mid 1990s that the club's name was reverted to its original denomination, and since shortly after independence, the Portuguese-named city of Nova Lisboa had changed to Huambo, so did the club's name.
