Football, or, soccer for our friends beyond Flores and Corvo, is really important in Faial. Did you know that Fayal Sport Club is one of the oldest football clubs of Portugal. It was founded in 1909 inspired by the English working for the submarine cables in Faial. Soon the FIFA World Cup starts and of course everybody is cheering for Portugal’s national team the Seleção. Whilst you will be able to watch most of the games in one of the numerous café’s around the island, you can also join the supporters at the Mercado Municipal.
