After the board of the S.U. 1º Dezembro decided to expand its sports activities to include football, the then Count of Sucena granted the club some land in 1935.[1] The Sports Complex has been located in that piece of land ever since it being granted and all the club's activities are performed there on a daily basis.

The Complex is located at the base of the Sintra Mountains, making for a rainy, cold and humid climate, with fog being a common occurrence.
