Futebol Clube do Porto, or Porto for short, is a Portuguese club founded in 1893. The club is nicknamed the Dragons and is one of the traditional “Big Three” clubs in Portugal, along with Benfica and Sporting Lisbon. The team’s traditional home colours are blue and white.Porto is one of only two Portuguese sides to have won the Champions League, which they have won twice, most recently in 2004. The club has won the domestic league title, the Primeira Liga, on 27 occasion and the Portuguese Cup 16 times. Other trophies the club has won include the UEFA Cup Winners’ Cup and the European Super Cup. The club’s home stadium is the Estádio do Dragão, which opened in 2003. The stadium seats over 50,000 spectators and was used as one of the venues for UEFA Euro 2004 competition.
In 2002 the club appointed José Mourinho as their manager. Porto won the 2002–03 Primeira Liga with relative comfort, finishing 11 points ahead of second-placed rivals Benfica. The club also won the UEFA Cup, defeating Celtic in a sensational extra-time final, to win its second major European title. Mourinho then secured an unprecedented treble for Porto by winning the Taça de Portugal final against his previous club, União de Leiria. During his three years at the club he guided the team to its first ever treble in 2003 and its second Champions League title in 2004.
In the 2012-13 season Porto finished as Primeira Liga champions. They also made it to the round of 16 in the Champions League. Striker Jackson Martínez ended the season as the club’s top goalscorer. Notable former managers include current Tottenham manager André Villas-Boas and the late Bobby Robson. Porto has a nose for spotting potential superstars. With former players like Falcao, Hulk, James Rodríguez, Ricardo Quaresma, Deco, Raul Meireles and Bruno Alves FC Porto has shown time and time again to be a team to be reckoned with on the European stage.
