Futebol Clube de Felgueiras was a Portuguese football club from Felgueiras. The club was founded on 16 August 1936 and ended in 2005 due to financial problems.

History[edit]

During a good portion of the 1980s, FC Felgueiras participated regularly in national championships. In the 1982–83 season, it got its first major national stint, after winning the Third Division and therefore achieving promotion.

In 1991–92, under the command of Mário Reis, Felgueiras won the Second Division B northern zone league, again reaching the second level. It was also during that decade that the club reached the pinnacle of its sporting achievements, being promoted to the top flight.[2] In the 1995–96 Primeira Divisão the club finished sixteenth place and were relegated.[3] The club then suffered a hefty decline down the football pyramid that lead them to the regional leagues and eventually extinction. A new football club, Futebol Club Felgueiras 1932 was created in 2006 and achieved promotion to the Portuguese Third Division in the 2011–12 season.[4]
