Best things to do in Lisbon? Play football!

You’ve come come to the continent with your mates and you’re looking for one of the best things to do in Lisbon? We can organise your very own football match here with 5,7, or 11 a side, a ball, team bibs, transport to and from the pitch from your hotel, a ref (if you want the authentic red-card experience!) and we’ll even find you a local team to play against!

If you and your football-mad stag mates want to re-live the spirit of 66 and play some footy in Portugal we’ve got just the ticket. Sweat out some of the beer and wine from last night’s party and let us make this pitch-perfect football experience one to remember! Enjoy the amazing weather by celebrating your trip to Lisbon by showing off your 1-touch skills and having a match of a lifetime!

Not satisfied just playing a match between you and your mates?

The Spain Event can set up a match against a real-live-local team to test your ball-kicking and ref-pleading abilities. In Portugal they take their football seriously, so be prepared either for celebrating an away-team victory, or holding your heads high as you give it your best and get a solid drubbing anyway.

Afterwards our guide can take you to a local pub where you can relive the highs and lows of the game with a few beers or ten! Why let Cristiano Ronaldo get all the glory? The beautiful game is waiting for you and your gang of lads to get in there!

We brought the stag onto the pitch wearing a banana costume and  played against a local tweam. Cheers to the Spain Event for making it all go smoothly…except the result of course…Tom, organiser of Lisbon Stag, 2016
