Football Club Tartu Santos is an Estonian football club based in Tartu. Their home ground is Tamme Stadium.

History[edit]

In 2014 Santos, while competing in the third tier of Estonian football, reached the 2013–14 Estonian Cup final. Their opponent in the final was the reigning Estonian champion FC Levadia, already qualified for the Champions League, therefore Santos qualified for the 2014–15 UEFA Europa League as cup runner-up. Santos went out on aggregate 13-1 to Tromso of Norway but scored their first ever goal in European competition leading to much dancing on the streets of Tartu.[2]
