Sporting Clube de Braga is a Portuguese sports club, from the city of Braga. The club was formed in 1921, but it has only achieved its first title in the 1965–66 season, by winning the Portuguese Cup. Their football team plays at the AXA Stadium, also known as The Quarry, which was built for UEFA Euro 2004.

Domestically, Braga has only won the 1965–66 Portuguese Cup, and reached three finals. In the 2000s, the club gradually became one of Portugal's most successful clubs, after the Big Three, and has also competed with some success in the European competitions, winning the final edition of the UEFA Intertoto Cup in 2008 and reaching the final of the UEFA Europa League in 2011. After finishing in second place, for the first time, in the 2009-10 Primeira Liga, Sporting Clube de Braga achieved a place in the 2010–11 UEFA Champions League group stage, also for the first time in their history, by knocking out Celtic FC and Sevilla FC in the qualifying rounds.

The table below shows the club's performance since its first presence in the 2nd Division in the 1942–43 season. This list details the club's achievements in major competitions, and the club's managers for each season.
