From a village to the big fields: A football success story
Founded by five villagers from Vila do Conde in 1939, the club steadily played itself up the ladder. In 1977, they won the third division cup and jumped right into the second league, where they scored two wins in 1996 and 2003 before rocketing into the first division and premier league in the early eighties. They celebrated their first major success in 1984, when they reached the final of the Taça de Portugal - the national premier league cup - and became second. In 2014, the club saw their success repeated, but lost to Benfica this time. However, losing to the teams considered part of the "big three" is certainly no shame, and Rio Ave FC continues to steadily yield higher and higher results. Following their entry into the final in the Taça de Portugal, the club played in the Europa League in 2014, which marked their first appearance in an international European football tournament. Make sure you see this promising team when you buy or sell Rio Ave FC tickets conveniently here on StubHub.
