  • Really good for football fans. Here is the great "Nobel"Club Benfica. Great Bowl and the Museum is a lot. There are also other sports take into account and the time history of the world will be accommodated with a little.

  • Had a great after at Benfica football ground my mum's football team. Guide was friendly and very knowledgeable about the football team and stadium. The cost to see football ground and museum was reasonable too
  • First football match. Terrific atmosphere. Tips. Get tickets prior to arriving at game time. Lines were long and they do not accept credit at the window. Getting there. Get off on the alto dos meinhos. Lots of food vendors around the stadium with cheap selections and cheap beers.
  • Maybe as a fan from Benfica I'm not the best person to make a review of the stadium. Besides being a pretty new and modern stadium, my experience, and yours, will come from the end result... After the 90 minutes. While I had too see Benfica lose, on my visit, I still enjoyed every moment. The supporters all act great, and even when losing, everyone behave as it should. I could see some away supporters between the "benfiquistas". Pick you match, join the support and enjoy a good night of sports... just make sure you take the right colors with you...
  • You can't miss this. If you get the chance go! The cinema surround in the elevator makes you become emotional of SL Benfica! Awesome!
  • Not that Sunderland's own 'Stadium of Light' is an eye-sore, but when comapred to Benfica's stunning 65, 000 capacity home, it simpley pales in significance.
