Very good

After a disappointing start - we came on the Friday only to discover that although the tours are everyday except game days there were no tours that day until 4pm and this was 10am, we wasted a lot of time as it's a little way out on the metro. We came back Saturday for 9.30 to ensure we got on the first tour at 10am and although it was a mixed language group the guide conducted the tour in English. We saw models reflecting how different the new stadium is compared to the old one, toured the hole of the inner stadium, the press room, away changing room, area in which the players hang out after the game and saw the 3 eagles. An eagles flies the stadium before every game and we got up close to them. Took photos through out and were never rushed to move on. Afterwards we went to the museum which is huge, there is so much to read. Hundreds of trophies some of which are for other sports. There is a video reflecting the eagle soaring over the city and showing the history of the team and another simulator about the fans. There is a very interesting timeline of world events and another about Lisboa events. There is a huge gift shop and you can get personalised shirts. Outside were some food carts.

I took my 11 year old son on the guided tour of the museum and we were very impressed. Our guide and booking agent were very professional and knowledgable about the history of the club and their enthusiasm and passion helped make this a wonderful experience. The many different displays and interactive technology make this a must do for families who love sport. For me the fan experience was quite special and unique.

Thank you.

Tour takes you to the most important parts of the stadium, except for the home locker room since only the team players can stay there. The highlight of the tour is meeting mascots - eagles that can be seen from close. Great addition is museum that you should visit - plan to be there some 3 hours and still you won’t be able to see everything in details.

Came here for a game of football between Benfica and Portimonense which Benfica won 4 -0.

The stadium is a beautiful stadium and you can begin to feel the atmosphere grow and build in terms of music, the noise from the crowed and the fireworks. It was nice to see the eagle released before kickoff and it flew round the stadium in majestic form.

One of the highlights of the game is a little young man sat behind us with his family who couldn't contain his excitement. He was soo noisy, singing and shouting almost throughout the game. Speaking to him and we both exchanged a hi five.

Overall a very good game of football which I thoroughly enjoyed.

We have been at the biggest European arenas, stadium tours and clubs museums. This one, at Benfica, was one of the best. We were only 2 non-Portuguese speaking people in our group, but we gained enough attention from our very nice guide Bruno. When the person actually does, what he really likes, you can easily see it, because he does it very well! The only point we really missed at the tour was the home changing room. It's a pity. The rest was great and you can take pictures everywhere. Moreover they have a very unusual presentation with special glasses, which creates the atmosphere of presence at the match! Fabulous. Bruno, thank again!
We normally don't spend more than an hour at the clubs museums. Here we easily spent 2 hours. The museum is very unusual with many creative educational and design ideas and also interactive session for children. Really recommended. Must-do for any football fan

That is the official name of the new Benfica's stadium, inaugurated in 2003.

Smaller than his predecessor, it has 4 distinct tiers and floors totalling more than 65000 covered seating capacity, and it's the biggest stadium of Portugal.

Note that when you buy tickets, you choose stands and floors (each floor represents a tier). All the tiers are divided, if you will, in 4 large independent stands, two central and two lateral. Each stand is named after a sponsor. So you choose one particular stand by its name and then the respective floor (starting from the ground floor up to the 3rd floor; the lower and upper tiers are subdivided in inferior and superior zones).

It is also far more confortable than the predecessor and allows a special show before any home match (an eagle, main symbol of the club since 1904, travels from one far side of the stadium to a podium placed on the field). It's an elite UEFA stadium and will receive the Champions League Final in 2014.

Besides football, the stadium itself is also used for many other events (even weddings) and certain rooms can be used like small auditoriums. There's also a Fitness center and panoramic restaurants. Inside the sports complex area there's a new museum, other restaurants, two pavillions totalling more than 4000 seats, for Basketball, Volleyball, Roller Hockey, Futsal and Handball sections, 55 bars, a commercial store, a megastore, several ticket places, three pools (one for relaxation, one for kids and starters and one with 25 metres for adults and competitors) with their own fitness and clinic centers, an area above the pools for the Table Tennis and Pool sections, one underground gymnasium for the Martial Arts and Gymnastics sections, two main parking zones (one located northeast near the centenarium plaza, with 300 lots, and the other is underground with a capacity for 1900 lots), a second field (synthetic surface) for football, and offices for Benfica's houses, veterans team, newspaper, television and of course, Benfica's choir. Eusebio's statue is located on the Centenarium plaza as well as plaques honoring some Benfica's associates. Benfica's two big eagle statues were transfered from the older stadium. There's also a bust of Miklos Feher inside the stadium.

You can tour certain areas of the stadium, if you like.

From a Benfica fan point of view, if you ask me what is missing from the old stadium besides the park for kids and the tennis courts? I would like another field for some others Benfica's sections that need to practice elsewhere, like Rugby and Athletics. :(
Maybe in the future?

There's also two public parking lots outside and near the stadium, one close to the northwest access tunnel and the other near Luz\Colégio Militar Bus and Metro interface under Colombo's viaduct of the Av. Lusiada (both are paid). There's also parking space outside the stadium on the northeast.
You can also park inside Colombo's Shopping and there's also another (and free) parking lot located a little more distant near Fonte Nova's Shopping.

Near the stadium there's two metro stations, one west side (the referred Luz\Colégio Militar interface) and other southeast side (Alto dos Moinhos).

Public buses that stops at or near the Luz\Colégio Militar interface: 703, 729, 764, 765, 767, 799. Also there's another bus stop close to the stadium (the 2nd one at the 2nd Circular Avenue, direction Parque das Nações with the bus 750). 754 and 768 stops at the Alto dos Moinhos metro station.

There's also a taxi station near Colombo Shooping.

Ah, before i left, a warning: Yes, you can call it "Stadium of Light". That's the popular name. Why? Because it's located at the "Light area", frontier of three Lisbon parishes, Benfica, São Domingos de Benfica and Carnide, named after the "Our Lady of the Light" Church.

Every person we met who worked at the stadium was so full of enthusiasm for their club it was quickly catching. The young guide who took us around was so welcoming and knowledgeable. The stadium is terrific and the tour took us through the changing area, the Press Area and through the players entrance onto the edge of the pitch. At the far end of the pitch, as we walked around, we came up to 3 bald eagles (club mascots) and were able to stand within a metre of them to take photos. The small entrance price of £10.50 (including entry to the excellent museum) is an absolute bargain and we are now converts - Benfica is our No 1 team in Portugal!

If you love football (soccer) you must go to a game! So much fun and great quality of play. If you have only been to a game in the US you need to go because it is an entirely different experience. Here the locals have grown up with it as their national sport and really understand the game. Fans cheer not just the goals but the great skill and moves of the players. The fans are intense about their home team but we always felt safe - it never got too rowdy. It was so much fun to not only watch the game but the fans. We met some great people as well. Everyone was so friendly. Definitely put it on your list of things to do while in Lisbon. The stadium is top notch and there really isn't a bad seat in the house.

Beautiful Stadium, and great Tour! The guide was awesome! Very knowledgeable and gave the tour in Portuguese and English. The Benfica Store is fabulous! Theres something for everyone!
The stadium is also located near a massive Shopping Mall (Centro Colombo), which is also a good attraction.

This was my first ever champions league match and despite having to wait until the 91 minute to see a goal it was not only worth the wait but also an amazing atmosphere. Being a Reading Fan the size of the stadium was bigger than we are used to and the atmosphere was nothing like you can get anywhere in the UK. As I say electric atmosphere without being intimidating and the man on the tannoy buoyed up the crowd into a frenzy finishing with the release of the Benfica eagle which circles the stadium. We ate in the impressive shopping centre food hall over the road which had cuisine from all over the world at very reasonable prices. Will definitely follow Benfica from now on and would highly recommend a match day if they are playing a high ranked team if you are an avid football fan.
