The football team of Atlético has played 24 seasons in the national first division, the last being 1976–77. The club has won five major trophies since its establishment in 1942 of which the include the Portuguese Second Division in 1944–45, 1958–59 and 1967–68 and the Portuguese Third Division in 2003–04 and 2005–06.

The club finished 11th in their return to the Segunda Liga in the 2011–12.[1] Atlético Clube de Portugal are currently sponsored by Spanish sports brand Joma. Although Atlético successfully competes in sports such as futsal and basketball, it is most known for its football team.[2][3]

History[edit]

Prior to the name of the club being Atlético Clube de Portugal, it was formed with the union of two clubs being put together. These football clubs were called Carcavelinhos Football Clube and União Foot-ball Lisboa. It was initially established on 3 March 1910 by a group of people from Santo Amaro. The club was initially called Grupo dos 15 (Group of 15) due to fifteen people establishing the club. Since then the club has been successful in its several different sports which it has had to offer which include association football, basketball, futsal, swimming, cycling, hockey and rugby.[4]

Under the name of Carcavelinhos, the club won the Campeonato de Portugal in 1928 followed by the Portuguese Second Division twice in 1935 and 1939. Under the name of União de Lisboa, the club managed to reach the Campeonato de Portugal final in 1929 where they lost to Belenenses 3–1 at the Campo de Palhavã. Arguably the club's most successful spell came just a few years after the establishment of the name Atlético Clube de Portugal. The club reached two Taça de Portugal finals in the 1940s. Their first final in 1946 saw them play Sporting CP at the Estádio Nacional in Oeiras where they lost 4–2.[5] The second major final came three years later where this time they played Benfica only to lose yet again 2–1 to the club from Lisbon.[6]

Since the club's establishment in 1942 the club has played at the Estádio da Tapadinha. The stadium holds a capacity of 10,000. It has hosted international matches primarily Portugal U21 games in the past.[7] Since the club has returned to the Segunda Liga for the 2011–12 season, the club has improved its financial status due to finishing in a credible eleventh place. Due to this the club has announced the renovation of the stadium which would improve all the stadium's facilities as well as its stands and would be ready for the start of the 2012–13 Segunda Liga.[8]
