Honours[edit]

Porto is one of the most successful teams in Portuguese competitions, holding the record for most cup (shared with Benfica) and super cup titles. They won their first championship in 1982–83, the first season under the presidency of Jorge Nuno Pinto da Costa. Notably, Porto won the First Division title for a record 10 consecutive seasons between 2001 and 2011, which allowed them to match Benfica's number of league titles. Internationally, Porto have also won multiple competitions, including two CERH European League titles in 1986 and 1990.[2]
