History[edit]

Establishment[edit]

The following season with new players like André Lima,[4] Rogério Vilela,[5] Pedro Costa and Arnaldo Pereira [6] they win their first championship against Sporting CP [7] and their first Portuguese Cup,[8] and finally, their first Supercup [9]

In 2003–04, notable players Ciço and Ricardinho joined Benfica.[10] Benfica reached the 2003–04 UEFA Futsal Cup final, losing it to Interviu.[11]

Adil Amarante years[edit]

In 2004–05, Adil Amarante replaced Alipio Matos, and added Nelito, Estrela and Pica Pau.[12] Benfica win the Portuguese Cup against Boavista FC [13] and the second championship against Sporting CP.[14]

The next season, players like Wilson [15] Côco [16] and Sidney all joined Benfica, while Zé Maria left.[17][18] Benfica lost the Taça de Portugal de Futsal to Sporting CP in the Final Four.[19] and then the Liga Portuguesa de Futsal to Sporting CP too.[20]

In 2006–07, Benfica improved his squad with new players, like Gonçalo Alves, Bébé, Pedro Costa, Zé Maria and Estrela which returned. Nelito ended his career.[21] Benfica conquered the Supercup.[22] In January, Alex joined Benfica,[23] in May Benfica win's another Portuguese Cup [24] and by June, another championship [25]

For 2007–08, Arnaldo Pereira and Miguel Almeida returned,[26] while Estrela left.

André Lima years[edit]

In July 2008, despite being in charge only for four months, Benfica replaced Beto Aranha with former player André Lima.[32] Only reinforcement was Pedrinho, while Miguel Almeida left.[33] Benfica lost the Supercup [34] but managed to win the Taça de Portugal de Futsal [35] and the third Championship in a row for the first time [36]

In 2011–12, Benfica added Marcão, Dentinho and Bruno Coelho.[51] The season fared much better than the previous and Benfica won all the 3 competitions it entered, the Supercup,[52] Portuguese Cup [53] and finally Championship [54] Ricardinho returned in January in a 6 monts loan [55] but failed to make an impact, being suspended on 3 games of the final [56][57]
