Sertanense Futebol Clube (Portuguese pronunciation: [sɨɾtɐˈnẽsɨ]), formerly Sertanense Foot-ball Club, is a Portuguese football club based in Sertã. Founded in 1934, it currently plays in the Portuguese Third Division, holding home games at Campo de Jogos Dr. Marques Santos.


The largest sports club of Sertã, in the Castelo Branco district, Sertanense was founded by Casimiro Farinha on February 17, 1934, eventually resorting exclusively to football, after devoting most of its energy to sport fishing, collecting some national trophies.

Twice district champion, in 1998 and 2000, it first reached the third level of national football in 2009. That summer, former Portugal U-20 goalkeeper José Bizarro - winner of the 1989 FIFA World Youth Championship - took charge of the team. In that and the previous season's domestic cup, the club faced first division giants F.C. Porto, being ousted 0–4 on both occasions (one at home).
