Vitória Futebol Clube is a Portuguese sports club from the city of Setúbal. Popularly known as Vitória de Setúbal (pronounced: [viˈtɔɾiɐ dɨ sɨˈtubaɫ], the club was born under the original name Sport Victoria from the ashes of the small Bonfim Foot-Ball Club.

Vitória de Setúbal have won 3 Portuguese Cup titles and 1 Portuguese League Cup title.


VFC Sétubal played in the inaugural Campeonato da Liga in 1934–35.[2][3]

In 1964–65, Vitória FC Setúbal won their first Taca de Portugal, beating holders S.L. Benfica 3–1 in the final. After losing 1–0 to SC Braga in the next season's final, Vitória won the 1967 final by beating Académica 3–2 after extra-time.[4]

Vitória's Cup victories allowed them to compete in the European Cup-Winners' Cup. They lost 4–2 on aggregate in the first round to AGF Aarhus in 1965–66[5] and 7–3 on aggregate to Bayern Munich in the second round in 1967–68.[6]

Vitória Setubal played in the Fairs Cup in 1969–70, knocking Liverpool out in the second round.[7][8] In the next round they were eliminated 2–1 on aggregate by Hertha Berlin.[8]

In the 1973–74 season, Vitória de Setúbal finished in third place, four points behind champions Sporting CP.[9]

After another yo-yo period from the mid-1980s to the mid-2000s, Vitória returned to the Portuguese top flight for the 2004–05 season and have remained there since.[10] The same season saw them win their third Cup, beating holders Benfica 2–1 in the final on 29 May. On 13 August, the two clubs played the Super Cup against each other at the Estádio do Algarve, with Benfica winning 1–0.[11]


Vitoria play at the Estádio do Bonfim, which was inaugurated in 1962 and has a capacity of 18,964.[12]

There are plans for a new municipal stadium to be built in Setúbal, with the Bonfim being re-developed for retail.[13]
