Progresso Associação do Sambizanga is an Angolan football club based in Luanda. The club was founded in 1975, as a result of a merger of three clubs: Juventude Unida do Bairro Alfredo (JUBA), Juventista and Vaza.[1][2]

Progresso do Sambizanga is notably the only club in Girabola to maintain a women's soccer team, even without official competition.

They play their home games at the state-owned Estádio da Cidadela.

History[edit]

The club made its debut in the Girabola in 1981 and won their only cup title in 1996 after defeating Primeiro de Agosto and qualified into the 1997 CAF Winners' Cup where they challenged with Gabon's FC 105 Libreville and won a goal in the first leg and lost 2–0 in the last, this was their only appearance in the continental competition.

In the 1980s, the club expanded its international relations, Progresso Sambizanga was the first African club to play in the legendary Maracanã in Rio de Janeiro.

One of the friendly pre-season matches were in 2012 where they played in Brazil in the Toca de Raposa I with the two popular clubs Cruzeiro and Atlético Mineiro.
