Sporting Clube de Portugal

Effort, Dedication, Devotion and Glory - That's Sporting Clube de Portugal

Born in 1906, by the hand of José Alvalade, Sporting started it's path for Glory. José Alvalade was a simpatizer of a club from Lisbon before founding Sporting, but one day he said enough - he wouldn't take part on a club that was made to be the host of parties and dances of the city. He wanted to compete, he wanted to create a club wich it's goal would be to win and be the best. So he left.
José Alvalade went home and asked his grandfather, Visconde de Alvalade, to fund him to create his own club. He fulfilled his wishes, and upon the creation of Sporting Clube de Portugal he stated - "We want Sporting to be a great club, as greatest as the biggest of Europe".
The "Lions" have conquered throphies throughout all the 109 years that followed. In Sporting's museum - Museu Mundo Sporting - there's more than 5 thousand cups and thropies.
In football, Sporting have won, beetween others, 1 Cup of Winner's Cup, 18 Portuguese Leagues, 16 Portuguese Cups, 8 Portuguese Supercups, 4 Championships of Portugal and 19 Championships of Lisbon.
After 1982, Sporting have struggled to affirm as the greatest portuguese club. In that time Sporting have only won 2 times the portuguese greatest trophy - Portuguese League - in 2000 and 2002.
In 2013, the club reached a new low, finishing the league in 7th place - the worst in it's history. But even in the darkest of times, there's light. And in this same year a new face refreshed Sporting's hope. President Bruno de Carvalho had reached his dream job, and since then Sporting is breathing better, and getting healthier by the day. For the last 2 years, President Bruno de Carvalho have saved the club economicaly and still making remarkable improvements in it's competitive performance.
Portuguese football, is, always was, and probably always will be a jungle. Not a safe place to everyone. But sometimes, all you need to do is ... to be a Lion.
So, my friends, Welcome to the Jungle.
