  Joao Fidalgo was born in 1986, in Espinho and started to play volleyball at the age of eight in SC Espinho. He continued to play in Espinho, where he won a Beginners National Championship, until 2005 when he transferred to Esmoriz GC.

From 2006 to 2009 he played for GC Vilacondense before moving to current club Vitoria SC. The 172-cm libero is very competitive and has an enormous will to evolve. He is a good receiver and excellent in defense, with a good capacity for reading the match and  adjusting. The best results for him were in 2006 with a first place finish in the Lusophone Games that were held in Macao and the European League Championship title win last year.
