History

Rio Ave was founded in 1939, being soon nicknamed Rio Grande (Big River). In 1981–82, it achieved its best ever league finish in the first division, a fifth place, nearly missing out on European qualification. Two seasons later, it reached the Portuguese Cup final, losing to league powerhouse F.C. Porto.

After spending the first part of the 1990s in the second level, the club returned to the topflight, going on to conquer the 1999 and 2003 second division. They would be relegated again, returning in 2008–09, and managing home draws during that season against Porto and Sport Lisboa e Benfica.
