Founded on Christmas day 1951, Arouca spent the first five decades of its existence in the Aveiro regional leagues. In only two years (2006–08) it managed to reach the third division, being managed by television (RTP) presenter Jorge Gabriel for a few months during that timeframe.
In 2010–11, after winning the third level championship, Arouca competed for the first time ever in top division. In the season's Portuguese Cup the club faced top division powerhouse S.L. Benfica, losing 1–5 at the Estádio da Luz.
Arouca managed its fourth promotion in only seven years at the end of 2012–13, reaching the Portuguese top flight for the first time in its history. Subsequently the Arouca Municipality awarded the club the Medal of Gold Merit for its achievement, with the organization also being granted extra financial means to renovate and expand its stadium.
Arouca were relegated to the Segunda Liga at the end of the 2016-2017 season
