Futebol Clube do Porto, popularly known as FC Porto, is a Portuguese football club based in the Portuguese city of Porto. They currently feature in the Portuguese first division and are one of the Big Three in Portugal.

History

Porto have won the Portuguese first division title 29 times, the Portuguese Supercup 21 times, the European Cup twice and the UEFA Cup once. The club was revived in 1906 by Monteiro da Costa.

Porto won their first official trophy in 1911 when they emerged victorious in the “Union of the North Cup”. They were the winners of the first national competition when they won the Campeonato da Liga in the 1934-1935 season.

Porto suffered a sort of drought after that and managed just 6 national league titles in the subsequent 41 years of dictatorship. After that they resurfaced so much so that they became European powerhouses.

In recent years, Porto have emerged as the best and most successful club, although Benfica and Sporting have won titles throughout the 2010s. Under Jose Mourinho Porto won the UEFA Cup in 2003 and then the Champions League in 2004.

FC Porto were founded in Porto on September 28, 1893 by wine-salesma Antonio Nicolau de Almeida

FC Port play their home matches at the Estadio do Dragao that can entertain a crowd of 51,000. The club bears the nicknames Dragaos (Dragons), Azuis e brancos (Blue and White) and Os Tripeiros(the Gutters).
