About Beira Mar

Sport Clube Beira-Mar is a Portugal sports club based in Aveiro, Portugal. Its Association football team currently plays in the Primeira Liga, holding home games at Estádio Municipal de Aveiro.

Eusébio and António Sousa were two of the club's most famous players; both played for Big Three (Portugal), the former with S.L. Benfica and the latter with both F.C. Porto and Sporting Clube de Portugal, and had long spells with the Portugal national football team; Sousa also later managed the team. Beira-Mar also possesses futsal, basketball and boxing departments.

History

Beira-Mar was founded on 1 January 1922, and first reached the Primeira Liga 39 years later, only lasting one single 1961–62 Primeira Liga. Until 1980, it would amass a further appearances in the top level, the longest spell being from 1971–74. In the 1976–77 Primeira Liga, former S.L. Benfica and Portugal national football team legend Eusébio played briefly for the side, often being injured, as the campaign ended in relegation.

Returned again to the top flight in 1988, Beira-Mar spent most of the following years in that division. In 1999, eight years after playing the decisive match in the competition, the club reached the final of the Taça de Portugal, against S.C. Campomaiorense - Sporting Clube de Portugal, Benfica and F.C. Porto and all been ousted before the round of 16 - and won it 1–0 thanks to a Ricardo Sousa goal, the son of coach António Sousa, who played for the club during the 70's; the team would also be 1998–99 Primeira Liga.

As the UEFA Cup Winners' Cup was extinguished in 1999, Beira-Mar participated in the 1999–2000 UEFA Cup, losing 1–2 on aggregate to Netherlands team Vitesse. In the domestic league, the club finished in second position in the Liga de Honra and promoted immediately back. On 23 February 2002, Beira-Mar achieved a 3–2 away win against Porto, which was managed by a young José Mourinho: it would be the last home defeat for the manager for the following decade.

The return of Mário Jardel to Portugal to play for Beira-Mar was one of the biggest news in Portuguese football in the summer of 2006, as the 33-year old and former European Golden Shoe winner signed a one-year contract. The Brazilian scored in his official debut, a 2–2 home draw against C.D. Aves, but gradually lost his importance in the team, leaving in the following transfer window to a team in Cyprus; Beira-Mar would eventually be 2006–07 Primeira Liga, in a season which also included the sacking of manager Carlos Carvalhal and his replacement with Spain Francisco Soler Atencia, after the team signed a cooperation deal with Inverfutbol, a Spanish-based sporting company.

In 2010, Beira-Mar 2009–10 Liga de Honra after a three-year absence, finishing the season as champions.
