Description
Available in:

Being today the most important sports club of Coimbra, Académica was founded by students of the University of Coimbra in 1876, when Clube Atlético de Coimbra (founded in 1861) and Academia Dramática (founded in 1837) merged. The equipment used is black shirt, shorts and socks, due to the relation to and origin in the local and famous University of Coimbra where students wear a typical all-black suit. In the beginning, Académica's footballers were all mostly university students, and very talented players were discovered in the pitch. This was the rule during many decades until the 1970s. Académica used to be a constant team in the Portuguese main division before 1974. After the 25 de Abril Revolution (1974) in Portugal, many changes took place in Portuguese society and the team experienced many changes. Between 1974–75 and 1983–84 football seasons, Académica was present in national competitions as C.A.C. – Clube Académico de Coimbra and after a period of uncertainty and several relegations to the Second Division, the Académica's football team and staff, were gradually professionalized aiming to achieve a stronger position in the modern times of fierce professional competition (although a small number of its modern players continue being students, and among them, a few at the University of Coimbra).

Stadium or Home

The Estádio Cidade de Coimbra (Coimbra City Stadium) is the home ground of Académica de Coimbra football team, and belongs to Coimbra's municipality. The stadium has 30,210 seats, two-thirds of which are covered and offers several amenities and services. Until 2003, it used to be called Estádio Municipal de Coimbra (Coimbra's Municipality Stadium) or Estádio do Calhabé (Stadium of Calhabé), after the name of its location in Coimbra. It had a capacity of 15,000, all seated, but just one small covered area. Then it was rebuilt, expanded and modernized to host some UEFA Euro 2004 matches. The Estádio Cidade de Coimbra was inaugurated with a Rolling Stones concert on 27 September 2003, attended by over 50,000 people. On 29 October 2003, Académica de Coimbra played at home to Benfica, in the first official match in the remodelled stadium.
