O Jogo (English: The Game) is a Portuguese daily sport newspaper. As of 2010, the paper has a daily circulation of 28,900.[1]

It was first published on 22 February 1985 by the Jornal de Notícias company in Porto, and it is seen as appealing mainly to supporters of Futebol Clube do Porto,[2][3] suppressing the gap of the two other national sports newspapers, A Bola and Record. Currently, it also has a Lisbon edition, with a slight different emphasis to appeal to a region where Sport Lisboa e Benfica and Sporting Clube de Portugal are based and where FC Porto has fewer supporters.[citation needed]

It was sold in 1995 to Controlinveste, which still owns the newspaper to this day.

Teams of the Year[edit]

Since 2012, O Jogo has organised the Team of the Year award, which distinguishes the best eleven players of the calendar year of the Primeira Liga.
