Boavista Futebol Clube, commonly known as Boavista, is a Portuguese sports club from the city of Porto. Founded on 1 August 1903, it is one of the oldest clubs in the country, and currently plays in the third division. It grew to become Porto's second greatest club — behind Porto — with sections dedicated to several sports including football, chess, gymnastics, bicycle racing and futsal, among others, the most notable being the football section with their trademark chequered white and black shirts.
One of the most prominent clubs in Portuguese football, Boavista spent 39 consecutive seasons in the Primeira Liga (50 in total). Its stadium, Estádio do Bessa, was built in 1973 and revamped for use in Euro 2004.
