Vizela Live Streams
Futebol Clube de Vizela is a professional Portuguese football club based in the municipality of Vizela in the Braga district. Commonly referred to as Vizela, the club currently competes in the Primeira Liga, which is the top division in the Portuguese football pyramid. However, they are still a relatively new addition to the division, having only played a handful of seasons as a top flight club.
Vizela currently plays their home matches at the Estadio do Futebol Clube de Vizela, which has been their home since it opened in 1989. It has a maximum capacity of 6,100 supporters and has a synthetic turf, which was first introduced in March 2003.
Unlike the “big three” of Benfica, Porto and Sporting CP, Vizela hasn’t played much football in the Primeira Division throughout its history, having been an amateur football club for much of its existence. The club was founded on January 1 1939 and their first stadium, the Campo Agostinho de Lima, was built by a local man who had won the lottery. They went on to win a number of titles, including the Third Division, the north zone of the Second Division and national champion of the Second Division B. Their highest achievements thus far have been making it to the Primeira Liga, which they achieved for the first time in the 1984/85 season.
In addition to their football team, Vizela also has representation within athletics and basketball, with particular notably names emerging from the former. Vizela has also had divisions within table tennis, hockey, chess and mini golf. The club nearly ceased to exist in 2013 due to a severe financial crisis that also prevented them from expanding and improving their facilities as they had planned. Despite the setback, they were still able to return to the Primeira Liga within the decade.
Vizela recently received their record transfer fee for right-back Koffi Kouao, who joined FC Metz in France for €600k. Their own transfer record still stands at €75k, which they spent on winger Carlos Fangueiro and remains the only player they have paid a transfer fee for in the club’s history. The lack of spending compared to the big boys in the division highlights the scale of the achievement for a club such as Vizela to be competing at this level.
