The club has had 21 appearances at the top level of Portuguese football, eight in a row from 1963. They reached the semi-finals of the Taça de Portugal on three occasions, in 1978, 1980 and 1985.

Varzim has won six major titles in their history, which include the Portuguese Second Division four times and the Portuguese Third Division and Liga Intercalar once. The club usually plays with over 70% of players from the youth ranks. The club youth academy is notable for producing Portuguese international footballers like António Lima Pereira, Bruno Alves, Hélder Postiga and Salvador Agra.

History[edit]

The club was founded on 25 December 1915 under the name Varzim Foot-Ball Club.[2] On 25 March 1916, the club approved a motion to change its name to Varzim Sport Club.[3] Following the name change, black and white were chosen as the colours for the club's kits in all sports. In 1918, the club joined the Porto Football Association, where they officially became recognised as a club and started to compete in the city's football league. In 1920, the club won their first trophy, was the Taça Eça de Queiroz.

Following several seasons playing in the amateur leagues, the club gained promotion to the top-flight Primeira Liga in 1963, where they remained for 13 seasons before being eventually relegated back down. Since then, the club has suffered mixed results after several promotions and relegation. In the club's most recent history, it suffered relegation in the 2010–11 Liga de Honra to the non-professional leagues for the first time in 15 years.[4]

Varzim won the Segunda Divisão in the 2011–12 season. They started their campaign in the II Divisão Zona Norte 2011–12, where they won the league comprehensively with 68 points, 14 more than second-placed Fafe.[5] In topping the group, the club qualified for the playoffs where two of the three sides in the playoffs would be promoted to the Liga de Honra. They fought off competition from the likes of Tondela and Fátima to finish top of the group and claim their fourth Segunda Divisão title.[6] Midfielder André André was praised for his fantastic displays for the club in which he scored 12 goals in 33 appearances from during the season.[7]
