Its football team was founded on 27 April 1912 and currently plays in the Campeonato de Portugal, the third division of Portuguese football. It holds home matches at the Estádio José Arcanjo, with a 5,661-seat capacity.

Olhanense were the first team from outside Lisbon or Porto to be crowned Portuguese Champions, in 1924.

Brief historyEdit

Olhanense became the first team from the Algarve region to reach the top level of Portuguese football, after winning the Algarve Football Association in 1941. Among its achievements was a fourth-place finish in the 1945–46 season, and the title of Portuguese Champion in the 1923–24 Campeonato de Portugal, at the time the most important national competition. In 1951, after ten consecutive seasons, the club returned to the second division.

Having been out of the top division since 1975, and after the relegation of neighbouring S.C. Farense to the lower leagues (including regional levels), Olhanense became once again the region's most important team, competing for the honour with Portimonense S.C. In May 2009, after defeating Gondomar S.C. 1–0, it returned to the top flight after a 34-year absence, led by former FC Porto central defender Jorge Costa.

RivalriesEdit

The club has rivalries with fellow Algarve clubs Farense and Portimonense.[1][2][3][4][5][6][7]
