Futebol Clube da Maia is a Portuguese football club based in Maia, Greater Metropolitan Area of Porto. Founded on 4 April 1954, it currently plays in the Porto Regional League, holding home games at Estádio Professor Doutor Vieira de Carvalho, which holds 15,000 spectators.


Maia never competed in the top division, but had a nine-year spell in the second level, from 1997–2006. In precisely its first season in the category, it faced F.C. Porto in the Portuguese Cup, losing 4–5 at home in the round-of-16 after disposing of Moreirense F.C. and C.D. Feirense in the previous rounds.

At the end of the 2006–07 season, Maia was relegated for the second consecutive time, thus falling into the fourth division. It folded in 2008 due to serious financial problems, starting competing again the following year, in the second regional division in Porto, and immediately achieving promotion.
