One of the first initiatives of its founders, Luís Amorim, Artur Bastos, Luís Cadilon and Arthur Lee, was to acquire land to build the first playground in the woods at Picalhos near the railway Valley Vouga. In 1924, they leased land and started embankments and soon the first few games took place against the Lourosa on 4 May 1924 in which the Feirense won 2–1. The first president was Santa Maria da Feiria native Alcides Machado da Silva, who took office on 30 December 1924.
