Portuguesa Santista is a Brazilian football team from Santos in São Paulo state, founded on November 20, 1917 by the Portuguese population of the city.

They play in red shirts, red shorts and socks. The club's mascot is a female donkey. The club's nickname, Briosa, was given between 1918 and 1920, when the club disputed several amateur football festivals. Briosa means courageous, graceful, in Portuguese language.


In November, 1914, Pedreira do Contorno workers, in Jabaquara neighborhood, Santos, were watching Espanha Futebol Clube matches and dreaming about creating a football club on their own. On November 20, 1917, Manoel Tavares had a meeting at Alexandre Coelho's barber shop, with 15 other people, who decided to found a club honoring Portugal. The name they chose was Associação Atlética Portuguesa and Lino do Carmo was elected as the club's first president.

The club's first match was played on December 5, 1920, when they beat Sírio Futebol Clube 6-0 at Estádio Ulrico Mursa.

In 1950, Portuguesa Santista had its first trip to another country. In Portugal, the club played seven matches, winning five of them and losing the other two.

In 1959, Portuguesa Santista traveled to Africa, playing against Angolan and Mozambican clubs. The team won all the 15 matches they played, scoring 75 goals and conceding 10. Because of this great perfor­mance, Portuguesa Santista won Fita Azul do Futebol Brasileiro ("Brazilian Football Blue Ribbon" in English), given to the club which succeeds in trips to another countries.

In 1964, Portuguesa won the second division of Campeonato Paulista (currently known as Campeonato Paulista Série A2), gaining promotion to the following year's first division.

In 1997, the club competed in Brazilian Championship Third Level, but was eliminated in the first stage.cite web |url= |title=Brazil Third Division 1997 Série C |accessdate=2007-09-20 |format= |work=RSSSF ]
