The Grupo de História e Desporto (Group for History and Sport – GHD) gathers researchers from several institutions, with the main goal of promoting cooperation, research and studies in the field of sport history. The GHD also organizes events for History and Sport at the national and international levels. In the Portuguese case, the interest in the history of sport is an important research focus. The GHD also organizes an annual congress, whose goal is the discussion and the production of knowledge in the various aspects of the intersection of history and sport. The theme for the 2013 congress is the Sport in the Ibero-american Space.

In 2013 it is the centenary of the Portuguese-Brazilian relations in football, a very important issue in both countries – in 1913 a Portuguese football team visited Brazil for the first time in history. To mark these event and to promote a sport history research about the international relations between Iberian Peninsula and American countries, the II Congress of History and Sport will be dedicated to Sport in the Ibero-american Space, in different perspectives in sport, including social, economic, political, religious, media, culture, ethics, cultural, artistic, structural and others.
