History and profileEdit

O Jogo was first published on 22 February 1985 by the Jornal de Notícias company in Porto, and it is seen as appealing mainly to supporters of FC Porto,[1][2] being publicly criticized by Benfica,[3][4] suppressing the gap of the two other national sports newspapers, A Bola and Record. O Jogo has also a Lisbon edition.

O Jogo is published in tabloid format.[5] The paper was sold in 1995 to Lusomundo Media subsidiary Jornalinveste,[1] which was later absorbed into Controlinveste in 2005 after Lusomundo Media merged with Olivedesportos, before renaming itself as Global Media Group in 2015.
