Sport Clube Salgueiros 08 (Portuguese pronunciation: [spɔɾ ˈklube saɫˈɣɐjɾuʃ zɛɾu ɔitu]), commonly known as simply Salgueiros 08 or Salgueiros, is a Portuguese multi-sports club from the city of Porto, in the northern region of the country. Mostly known for its football team, it currently plays in the Campeonato Nacional which is the third tier of Portuguese football. Although they are based in the parish of Paranhos, they play their home matches at the Complexo Municipal de Pedrouços in Pedrouços, Maia which can accommodate 5,000 spectators.[1]


Salgueiros 08 was created in 2008 as football club to replace the historic club Sport Comércio e Salgueiros, whose football team was suspended after being forbidden to sign players due to financial debts. Starting with a senior football team, the new club soon expanded to futsal and handball teams, also creating female sections for football and handball. In their first season in the district leagues in 2008–09, the football team averaged home attendances of over 2,200 people per game, the 15th highest average attendance nationally, proving that support for the charismatic club was as strong as ever.[2] The team went on to win the Porto FA Second Division title (the 7th tier of Portuguese football) in its very first season. Three more promotions in four seasons led Salgueiros from the regional leagues of the Campeonato Nacional for the 2013–14 season.
