Estádio Municipal de Portimão is the current stadium of Portimonense S.C.. It is located in the centre of Portimão in the Algarve, Portugal and was opened in 1937 for local football club Portimonense S.C.. Its capacity is 9,544 people. It hosted Portimonense's stay in the Primeira Liga in the 1980s.
In 2006, Portimonense were forced to play away from the Estádio Municipal in the Estádio Algarve, which – built for Euro 2004 – is 70 kilometres from Portimão. In February 2007, however, Portimonense returned home and the Portimão Municipality purchased the site five months later. This allowed the renovations required for the hosting of higher level competition: the installation of green seats , new turnstiles and security facilities.
