Futebol Clube de Alverca is a Portuguese football club based in Alverca do Ribatejo, Vila Franca de Xira, Lisbon. Founded on 1 September 1939, it currently plays in the Lisbon District Championships.


The club's home venue is the 7,705 capacity Complexo Desportivo do FC Alverca.


After many decades in the lower levels of Portuguese football, Alverca was promoted to the top level in 1998, and played there in four of the next five editions, also coming back for 2003–04, which also ended in relegation; during most of this time, the club acted as feeder club to S.L. Benfica.

Alverca played one more year in level two, before folding for financial reasons, in 2005. The following year, the club was re-formed, beginning at regional level, and promoting in 2007–08 to the first division of that category.
