Sporting Clube Olhanense (Portuguese pronunciation: [ˈspɔɾtĩɡ ˈklub(ɨ) oʎɐˈnẽs(ɨ)]) is a Portuguese sports club from Olhão, Algarve.

Its football team was founded on 27 April 1912 and currently plays in the Portuguese first division, holding home matches at Estádio Algarve, with a 30,002-seat capacity.

Olhanense were the first team from outside Lisbon or Porto to win the Portuguese Cup, in 1924. Despite an absence of 34 years (1975-2009) from the Primeira Liga, they have become once again the standard bearer of their native Algarve region.

Brief history[edit]

Olhanense became the first team from the Algarve region to reach the top level of Portuguese football, after winning the Algarve Football Association in 1941. Among its achievements was a fourth place finish in the 1945–46 season, and the title of Portuguese Champion in the 1923–24 Campeonato de Portugal, at that time the most important national competition; in 1951, after ten consecutive seasons, the club returned to the second division.

Having been out of the top division since 1975, and after the relegation of neighbouring S.C. Farense to the lower leagues (including regional levels), Olhanense became once again the region's most important team, competing for the honour with Portimonense SC. In May 2009, after beating Gondomar SC 1–0, it returned to the top flight after a 34-year absence, led by former F.C. Porto central defender Jorge Costa.
