G.D.R. Monsanto is a Portuguese football club based in the village of Monsanto in the municipality of Idanha-a-Nova in east Portugal. They currently play in one of eight regional leagues in the Portuguese Third Division in the fourth tier of Portuguese football.


G.D.R. Monsanto has existed informally for most of the 20th century, but was formally constituted in 1976 as part of a sports club that also competes in cycling and chess. In recent years, the team played in the Santarém District Leagues before reaching promotion to the Portuguese Third Division in 2004 and subsequently the Portuguese Second Division in 2008.

The club was relegated back to the Third Division for the 2010–11 season, where it won the Series D league, and will compete in the Second Division again in 2011–12.[2]

Each season, the team competes in the Portuguese Cup.[3]
