The greatest football (soccer) team in the world
Welcome to the unofficial webpage of Clube de Futebol Os Belenenses,
one of Portugal's top football (soccer) teams.

A bit of history

National champions of Portugal,
Headline in "A Bola,"
Portugal's leading sports newspaper.
Matateu, one of the greatest strikers
ever to play in Portugal,
and possibly Belenenses' best player
of all times.
One of Portugal's
best national teams of all times
played the 1966 World Cup in England.

The "Magricos", as they were called,
included two fine players
from Belenenses:

keeper Ze Pereira
and center back Vicente.

Then and now

First stadium......current stadium.
The team in 1919......the fans in 1999.
Sporting Lisbon: an old rival... ...still a rival.
