Sporting Clube de Luanda
|Full name||Sporting Clube de Luanda|
|Ground||Estádio dos Coqueiros |
Sporting Clube de Luanda best known as Sporting de Luanda, is an Angolan multisports club based in Luanda. The club's football team, while being one of the most ancient and traditional clubs in Luanda, has been out of major competition due to financial reasons.
The team was founded in 1920.
Following the country's independence in 1975 and in an attempt by the communist regime to erase all traces of colonial rule, the club which has been created as an affiliate to Sporting Clube de Portugal was ordered to change its name and therefore became known as Diabos Verdes (Green Devils).
In February 1981, the club's name changed again as Leões de Luanda (Luanda's Lions).
In the early 1990s, with the establishment of democracy, the club was able to reclaim its original name.
