The Associação Académica de Coimbra – Organismo Autónomo de Futebol (A.A.C. – O.A.F.), also referred to as Académica de Coimbra (Portuguese pronunciation: [ɐkɐˈðɛmikɐ ðɨ kuˈĩbɾɐ]) or simply Académica, is an autonomous and professional football organization based in Coimbra, Portugal.

The club was created in 1887, when Clube Atlético de Coimbra (founded in 1861) and Academia Dramática (founded in 1837) merged. In 1938–39, the football team won their first Portuguese Football Cup, the first under the tournament's current name and a feat they would repeat in 2011–12. In 1966–67, they achieved their highest position of runner-up in the Primeira Liga table.


The club was founded on 3 November 1887.[1] In honour of the 130th birthday of the Club, Académica joined the Club of Pioneers.


Their home ground is the Estádio Cidade de Coimbra (Estádio EFAPEL Cidade de Coimbra for sponsoring reasons), which has a capacity of 29,622.
