The SC Beira-Mar is a Portuguese sports club from Aveiro , known for its football department of Lords. This played 27 years in the top Portuguese division , most recently in the 2012/13 season. After financial difficulties, she was relegated to the amateur classes. In the 2020/21 season, the team will compete in the third Portuguese division.


The SC Beira-Mar was founded in 1922. He rose for the first time in 1961 in the first Portuguese football league, the Primeira Liga . In the following decades the club played again and again for mostly a few seasons in the top division, from which it was relegated a total of ten times to this day. In the 1970s, Beira-Mar was represented in the Primeira Liga for seven seasons. In 1976, the now 34-year-old world star Eusébio played for a year in the club. After a long period of abstinence in the 1980s, the club's longest uninterrupted membership in the first division followed between 1988 and 1995. During this time, Beira-Mar achieved his best placement with sixth place in the 1990/91 season and moved into the Portuguese Cup final for the first time in the same season . In 1999 he finally won the cup competition and thus the greatest success in the club's history. At the same time there was another relegation to the second division. By winning the Cup, Beira-Mar took part in the 1999/2000 second division in the UEFA Cup , in which the team failed in the first round at the Dutch Vitesse Arnhem .

On February 23, 2002, SC Beira Mar won 3-2 at FC Porto . Until 2011, the club was the only one that was able to bring a home defeat to a team coached by José Mourinho in a league game.

Beira-Mar last played in the Primeira Division from 2010 to 2012. In 2015, the club was downgraded to the second regional division of the Aveiro district for financial reasons . For the 2019/20 season, he was promoted to the third division.


For decades, SC Beira-Mar played its home games in the Estádio Mário Duarte, which was built in 1935 . In 2003 the Estádio Municipal de Aveiro was completed as the venue for the 2004 European Football Championship . This served as Beira-Mars' home until 2015, before the club temporarily moved back to its old stadium. In 2020 the Estádio Mário Duarte was demolished and the club is now playing again in the new Estádio Municipal de Aveiro.
