The 2011–12 season is the Futebol Clube do Porto's 78th season in the Primeira Liga, officially known as the Liga ZON Sagres for sponsorship reasons. Porto captured their 25th league title last season with their 3 April defeat of rivals Benfica. Manager André Villas-Boas became their manager on 2 July 2010 and won the league with no losses in their domestic campaign.[1] On 20 June 2011, Villas-Boas quit Porto to join Chelsea in England. The next day, Porto named Vítor Pereira as their new head coach.
