History

While never a contender to the place of third most important club in the Lisbon Football Association, Estrela da Amadora (translated "Amadora Star") won a Cup of Portugal in 1990 and one Portuguese Second Division title in 1992-93. Within their 12 completed seasons at top flight football, their best season was in 1997-98, when they finished seventh.

After winning the cup in 1990, the club reached the second round of the Cup Winners' Cup. In the following decades, Estrela maintained its first division status in most seasons. In 2008-09, however, amidst serious financial difficulties, it was relegated even though it finished the campaign in mid-table.

Kit

Estrela's kit is white with the shirt split with three colours (hence the nickname 'the tricolours'). Left side is red, the middle is white and the right green, with the shorts and socks white. Estrela is sponsored by Portuguese brand Tepa and Cofidis.

In 2005, the team decided to change the club's kit to traditional white copying the badge and taking away the old red, green and white striped kit.
