SPORTING CLUBE DE
BRAGA - A CLUB IN THE NICE CITY
In the green and beautiful region of Minho, lays Braga, 3rd biggest
city in Portugal, and home to Sporting Clube de Braga, a foremost club
in the history of Portuguese football.
Braga was one of the host cities of Euro04. Our magnificient stadium
was home to a few games of the tournament and was inaugurated in
December 03. Since then, it has been awarded many prizes both at a
national and international level.
Our football team finished 4th place last few seasons, just behind the
classic teams from Lisbon and Porto but not without a brave fight
until the last round. As for the UEFA cup we have been trying
unsuccessfully to get into the group stages but with no luck. Close
clashes against Hearts (Scotland) and Red Star Belgrade (Serbia) were
fatal to our desires. In the Portuguese cup we have been playing until
the last rounds but we have failed to reach teh final. Last time we
reched the final was in 1998.
Amongst our squad we have a lot of famous players. João Pinto, 35, is
probably the most known of all Braga players. However, names like Hugo
Leal (Benfica, PSG, FC Porto), Marcel (Flamengo, Suwon Bluewings,
Benfica), Nem (Brazil) and Maciel (FC Porto) give us many expectations
for this coming year. Less known players (for the time being) such as
Andrés Madrid (ex-Argentina U21), Wender (Sporting Lisbon) or our own
homegrown players (Castanheira, Paulo Jorge, Bruno Gama...) complete
what Braga fan's think is one of the best Braga team of all times.
Braga's manager for the last few years was Jesualdo Ferreira, who now
is in charge of FC Porto. This year we are under the leadership of a
homegrown player that has become one of the most promising managers in
Portuguese football. José Mourinho has rated him as a man to look for
and that must say most about him.
Our current economic state is, unlike most clubs in Portugal,
extremely good. Due to the sellings of players such as Tiago (Benfica,
Chelsea, Lyon), Ricardo Rocha (Benfica), Quim (Benfica), Cícero, Jorge
Luís and Luís Loureiro (Dinamo Moskow), João Alves and Wender
(Sporting Lisbon, Wender is on a loan) or Nunes (Maiorca) have left
our vaults quite comfortable. For that reason, all wages have been
duly paid and players are quite happy in SC Braga.
However, despite being the most proeminent sport, football is just a
small part of the club. SC Braga is highly renowned throughout Europe
in athletics, swimming or female voleyball. Indoor football is the
latest sport to be added to our list.
SCBraga has also a strong tradition in other modalities, such as
athletics, having won many european titles.
