Geocache Description:



Campo da Rainha

[PORT]

No dealbar do século XX, o Campo da Rua da Rainha, mais tarde rebatizada Rua Antero de Quental, foi o recinto onde jogou o FC Porto renovado por José Monteiro da Costa. Aproveitando o auxílio do pai, Jerónimo, o líder azul e branco deu forma a uma iniciativa pioneira no país, arrelvando um retângulo com as medidas oficiais de jogo, ladeado por fileiras de bancos de tijolo que podiam acomodar cerca de 600 espetadores. As instalações comportavam ainda um vestiário, um balneário com três chuveiros e dois lavatórios, um bufete, um ginásio exterior e uma majestosa tribuna destinada aos convidados de honra.

Inaugurado com solenidade num jogo de demonstração entre o FC Porto e os ingleses do The Boavista Footballers, o Campo da Rainha foi palco da primeira vitória azul e branca frente a um adversário estrangeiro, o Real Fortuna de Vigo, batido por 4-1, em 15 de dezembro de 1907.

[ENG]

At the beginning of the XX century, the Campo da Rua da Rainha (Queen Street), later renamed Rua Antero de Quental, was the place where FC Porto, then renewed by José Monteiro da Costa, played. Taking advantage from the help of the father, Jerónimo, the blue and white leader gave shape to a pioneer initiative in the country, putting grass in a rectangle with the official measures of the game, framed with lines of brick benches that could seat around six hundred spectators. The facilities also had a dressing room, a locker with three showers and two sinks, a cafetaria, an external gym and a majestic tribune destined to the guests of honor.

Solemnly opened in a friendly match between FC Porto and the British side Boavista Footballers, the Campo da Rainha was the stage of the first blue and white victory against a foreign opponent, Real Fortuna de Vigo, beaten by 4-1 in 1911.​​
