C.D. Tondela History

During the majority of the 2014–15 campaign, the team finished in or very close to the top of the standings, and by early April, they had taken the lead. On the last day of the season, the 24th of May 2015, a 1–1 draw away at Freamunde was enough to capture the Championship title and a maiden promotion to the top tier of Portuguese football.

This was the first time that the team had ever achieved this feat. In the 94th and last minute of play, André Carvalhas scored the game-winning goal by scoring directly from a direct free kick.


Football matches are held at Estádio Joo Cardoso, which is located in Tondela, Portugal. The stadium has a capacity of 5,000 people. C.D. Tondela, who are now competing in the Portuguese Primeira Liga, call this stadium their home field.

The stadium was constructed in 2008, and when it was first opened, it had a capacity of 2,674 spectators. However, once Tondela was promoted to the first division in 2015, the club decided to upgrade the facility by adding two new stands, which increased the stadium’s capacity to 5,000.

On December 13th, 2015, the fully expanded stadium was officially opened to the public. The attendance for the match versus Sporting CP on March 11, 2017, set a new record for the stadium with 4,987 fans in attendance.
