Sporting Lisbon

 Sporting Clube de Portugal OM ComM MH IH, commonly referred to as Sporting or Sporting CP or Sporting Portugal is a Portuguese multi-sports club based in Portugal's capital city of Lisbon. Although they successfully compete in a number of different sports, Sporting is best known for its association football team.

Founded in Lisbon on 1 July 1906, it is one of the "Três Grandes" football clubs in Portugal. With more than 100,000 registered club members, its teams, athletes and supporters are often nicknamed Leões by its fans.

During the first century of the club's existence, the teams and the athletes of Sporting won three Olympic gold medals, as well as many silver and bronze medals and thousands of national and district titles.

During the founding period, José Alvalade made known his wish to transform Sporting into a "....big Club, as big as the biggest in Europe." Daring to clear pathways in a time when, in Portugal, sports were still activities in their developmental stages and having mainly elitist characteristics, the first "Sportinguistas" managed to found what became the present day successful Sporting Clube de Portugal. Sporting has more than three million fans on all continents with up to 300 supporters' clubs, offices, and delegations, as well as more than 150,000 affiliates.
