You’ve come to Lisbon for something special. You KNOW what’s going to be the crowning glory to your trip – Benfica Football Tickets – so you can see one of Europe’s, nay, one of the WORLD’S great football teams! Who else can say they have reached ten European Cup finals and hold the European record for the most consecutive wins in a domestic league (hint, it’s 28)? This football team has been wowing its fans for over 100 years and has collected a truly massive array of trophies. Lisbon’s storied club has won more Primeira Liga titles than any other team and has triumphed in the UEFA League and European Cups as well.
Founded in 1904, Benfica is Portugal’s most famous club with an estimated 14 million supporters worldwide. One of the great teams of Europe, Benfica have won a record 35 Primeira Liga titles and more recently they won the UEFA Cup/Europa League in 2013 and 2014. Oh, did we mention they have won the Primeira Liga for the last three years in a row? Together with Sporting Lisbon and PC Porto, Benifica dominates Portuguese football and always have some impressive playmaking skills on display.
Benfica’s glorious stadium, the Estádio da Luz, has a capacity of 65,000 and is one of the biggest stadiums in Europe. It hosted several matches in the UEFA Euro Cup 2004, including the final, and the 2014 UEFA Champions League Final as well. In October 2014, it was elected as the most beautiful stadium of Europe by an online poll. Its arched design allows for (as the name suggests) loads of sunshine to stream in and illuminate the pitch. Typical games have at least 50,000 and the Benfiquistas, as the supporters of Benfica are known, always contribute their high-energy and play their role as that ever-crucial 12th player.
In the latest news, the 2016-17 season is shaping up to be something special. They have matches in the upcoming Champions League, having secured their place as the Primeira Liga champion, as well as several Primeira Liga derbys with their arch rivials Sporting Lisbon and FC Porto. Most interestingly they have acquired striker Raul Jimenez of Mexico from Athletico Madrid in move reported to add up to €22 million, making him the most expensive Mexican player in history. With Rui Vitória as coach there is no stopping this formidable team – to the winner the spoils!
