Clube de Futebol União, commonly known as União da Madeira, is a Portuguese football club from Funchal, Madeira.[1] The club was founded on 1 November 1913, thus being one of the oldest football clubs in Portugal.[2] The club's home ground is the Estádio dos Barreiros, capacity 8,922 spectators.

The club currently plays in the Segunda Liga.[3] União da Madeira has played in the Primeira Liga on five occasions between the 1989–90 and 1991–92 seasons and the 1993–94 and 1994–95 seasons.[4][5][6][7][8] As a sports club, União da Madeira has sports departments for Basketball, Fencing, Football, Handball, Roller hockey, Rugby and Volleyball.[9][10][11] União da Madeira are currently sponsored by Italian sportswear manufacturer Macron.[12]

History[edit]

The club was founded on 1 November 1913 initially as União Futebol Clube by, among others, César da Silva, João Fernandes Rosa, Alexandre Vasconcelos, José Anastácio do Nascimento and José Fernandes. The founding members shortly after its establishment decided to change the club's name to Clube de Futebol União.[2]

Shortly after Ângelo Olim Marote was appointed as the very first chairman of the club. A few years later the club was a founding member of the Madeira Football Association which it is still a part of today as well as competing in its annual AF Madeira Cup.
