Imortal Desportivo Clube (abbreviated as Imortal DC) is a Portuguese football club based in Albufeira in the Algarve.[1]

Background[edit]

Imortal DC currently plays in AF Algarve 1ª Divisão which is now the fourth tier of Portuguese football. The club was founded in 1920 and they play their home matches at the Estádio Municipal de Albufeira in Albufeira. The club's main achievement was winning the Segunda Divisão Série Sul in 1998–99. This was followed by their highest league placing in 1999–2000 when they finished in 15th place in the Liga de Honra. Their second season in tier 2 in 2000–01 resulted in relegation and then followed a period of decline, including the withdrawal of a main sponsor, which culminated in them playing in AF Algarve 2ª Divisão, the sixth tier of Portuguese football, in 2008–09.[1]

The club is affiliated to Associação de Futebol do Algarve and also competes in the AF Algarve Taça – The Algarve Cup. They reached the final in 2008–2009 while still in the 2ª Divisão. The club has also entered the national cup competition known as Taça de Portugal on many occasions.[1][2]

The club has fairly successful teams at U-19 and U-17 level, as well as teams in lower age groups and small side football for the youngest boys – there are no women's or girls teams.

Fixtures and results can be found at the Algarve FA website. Most first team matches are played on Saturdays at 3pm / 1500hrs.

Despite finishing 2nd and 3rd in recent seasons, Imortal stay in the local competition. Only the top team in the Algarve League wins promotion to the National League system.
