A Bola (English: "The Ball") is a Portuguese sports newspaper, published in Lisbon. It was founded in 1945 by Cândido de Oliveira and Ribeiro dos Reis, and was then published twice a week. It became a daily newspaper in 1995.
Although its subtitle is "newspaper of all sports," its content is mainly about football. It is generally seen as appealing to supporters of Sport Lisboa e Benfica, although some of its columnists are supporters of other clubs – former Portuguese Prime Minister Pedro Santana Lopes, a Sporting Clube de Portugal supporter, had a column for several years, while columnist Miguel Sousa Tavares caters for Futebol Clube do Porto supporters.
Since the 1952–53 season, it hands the Bota de Prata award to the Primeira Liga top goalscorer.
