History[edit]

Futebol Benfica already played in the top Portuguese level in the 1990s.[1] In the 2010–11 season it returned to the category. Though that same season it reached the Cup final, initially it struggled to avoid relegation. But in the 2013–14 season Futebol Benfica rose to the top positions. The next year, 2014–15, Futebol Benfica won both the championship and the cup.[2] Futebol Benfica repeated the feat in 2015–16, winning both the championship and cup again.

In the 2015–16 season Futebol Benfica made its Champions League debut.[3] Despite winning two out of its three games, Futebol Benfica was eliminated in the qualifying round.
