FC Porto

Futebol Clube do Porto, MHIH, OM, commonly known as FC Porto or simply Porto, is a Portuguese sports club based in Porto.

Founded on 28 September 1893, Porto is one of the “Big Three” (Portuguese: Os Três Grandes) teams in Portugal – together with Lisbon-based rivals Benfica and Sporting CP – that have appeared in every season of the Primeira Liga since its establishment in 1934. They are nicknamed Dragões (Dragons), for the mythical creature atop the club’s crest, and Azuis e brancos (Blue-and-whites), for the shirt colours.

Porto is the second most successful Portuguese team, with a total of 74 official trophies. 67 were achieved in domestic competitions and comprise 27 league titles (five of which were won consecutively between 1994–95 and 1998–99, a Portuguese football record), 16 Taça de Portugal (seven of which included in a double), 4 Campeonato de Portugal, and a record 20 Supertaça Cândido de Oliveira. Porto is the only team in Portuguese league history to have won two titles without losing a game, namely in the 2010–11 and 2012–13 seasons. In the former, Porto achieved the largest-ever difference of points between champion and runner-up in a three-points-per-win system (21 points), on their way to a second quadruple.

Internationally, Porto have won seven trophies – the European Cup/UEFA Champions League in 1987 and 2004, the UEFA Cup/Europa League in 2003 and 2011, the UEFA Super Cup in 1987, and the Intercontinental Cup in 1987 and 2004. In addition, they were runners-up in the 1983–84 European Cup Winners’ Cup and in the 2003, 2004 and 2011 editions of the UEFA Super Cup.
