In 1991–92, under the command of Mário Reis, Felgueiras won the Second Division northern zone league, again reaching the second level. It was also during that decade that the club under the management of Jorge Jesus reached the pinnacle of its sporting achievements, being promoted to the top flight. In the 1995–96 Primeira Divisão the club finished sixteenth place and were relegated. The club then suffered a hefty decline down the football pyramid that lead them to the regional leagues and eventually extinction. A new football club, F.C.
