Since 1985/86 he has remained in the elite without interruption.
In addition to football, it has a dozen sections, including volleyball, handball, basketball, athletics and roller hockey.

El Portuguese Maritime Sports Club was founded on September 20, 1910 by Cândido Fernandes de Gouveia. The entity adopted the red and green colors of the republican flag of Portugal to distinguish itself from the other existing entity, the Madeira Sports Club, which used the white and blue of a monarchy that would be overthrown on October 5. The word "Maritime" refers to the origin of the first footballers, mostly fishermen and stevedores from the port of Funchal.
The new team was one of the founders and the first winner of the Madeira Championship 1916/17, which would dominate completely in subsequent editions. With the creation of the National Championship of Portugal in 1921, disputed between the winners of each regional federation, the Marítimo would assume the Madeiran representation in 13 of the 17 editions disputed until the conversion into the Portuguese Cup in 1938. His greatest achievement was the conquest of the 1925/26 edition, after defeating Porto (7-1) and Os Belenenses ( 2-0) in the final phase.
The problems came with the creation of the Portuguese league system in 1934, as the island clubs (Madeira and Azores) were excluded from the League and the Cup for logistical reasons. Marítimo's appearances were limited to the Madeira Championship, in the that would obtain 21 more titles, and a tour of the Portuguese colonies in 1950. However, he could not face clubs from mainland Portugal until the 1960s, by inviting him to the Portuguese Cup.
Finally, the Portuguese Football Federation (FPF) agreed with the Madeira Association that the 1972/73 regional champion would access the Portuguese league system. And since Marítimo was the winner for the thirty-fifth time, it was able to register in the 1973/74 season of the national Second Division.
Marítimo was the first team in Madeira to have access to the Portuguese league system, so its beginnings were complicated and they focused especially on professionalizing the institution. In his first experience, the FPF forced him to pay the transport costs of his opponents, something that would later be assumed by the organization. Four years after joining, the verdirojos were promoted to the First Division and debuted in the 1977/78 season with a twelfth place. Despite suffering two declines at the beginning of the 1980s, the club returned to the top flight permanently in 1985/86.
The arrival of Brazilian coach Paulo Autuori in 1990 was a shock for the team.With an eye-catching and scoring style of play, Marítimo finished in fifth place for two consecutive years (1992/93 and 1993/94) and became the Madeira's first team to compete in European competitions thanks to its debut in the 1993/94 UEFA Cup, and would also play in the 1995 Portuguese Cup final, which resulted in a defeat against Sporting Lisbon (2-0).
With the arrival of the 2016st century, the Marítimo assumed the purchase and renovation of the ancient municipal field, the Estadio dos Barreiros, which it converted into the Estadio del Marítimo in December 2012. At a domestic level, it has managed to stay in the upper area of the table without come to question the dominance of Lisbon clubs, while at European level his greatest feat was reaching the group stage of the 13/XNUMX UEFA Europa League.
The Club Sport Marítimo plays at home at the Estadio del Marítimo, with a capacity for 10.932 spectators. It is located in the parish of São Martinho, just two kilometers from the port of Funchal.
The construction works began in 2009, were divided into two phases and did not conclude until December 2016, with a total cost of 25 million euros assumed between the club and the regional government. In return, the green-colored team is the only one you can use it.
The facility is built on the ancient Barreiros Stadium, which for a long time was the only professional soccer field in Madeira. Although soccer has been played on these grounds since 1923, it was not until 1957 that the regional authorities inaugurated a multipurpose stadium shared with Nacional and União de Madeira, today with their own pitches. The running track that surrounded the grass has been removed in the rebuilding.
El Marítimo disputes the so-called «Funchal Derby» against Clube Desportivo Nacional, with whom they usually coincide in the First Division. Within Madeiran football, Maritime has been the main dominator by number of titles, international participations and social mass. During the time that Madeira was not part of the Portuguese league system, the traditional derby was against União da Madeira.
The Madeira teams could not participate in the Portuguese First Division until the early 1970s, so the duels between Nacional and União were guaranteed in the regional championship. The rivalry also has a political background: while the Nacional was seen as a bourgeois club, the Marítimo was linked to the maritime class and local workers.Today those differences have been blurred, but the competition remains.
