History and description

The Estádio da Luz, officially named Estádio do Sport Lisboa e Benfica, was built to provide Benfica with a new and modern home, and to serve as the playing venue for the Euro 2004 final. The new Estádio da Luz was built in place of the old Estádio da Luz. Construction works started in 2002 and the stadium opened its doors to the public in March 2003, when Benfica played their last game there.

The stadium has a seating capacity of just over 61,000 people and is the new home of Benfica. The new stadium opened on 25 October 2003 with a football match between Benfica and Club Nacional. The stadium has a seating capacity of just over 61,000 people and is the new home of Benfica.

The Estadio da Luz hosted three group matches during the Euro 2004 Championships - the quarter-final between Portugal and England (2-2), and the final between Greece and Portugal (1-0).

In 2014, the stadium hosted the Champions League final between Real Madrid and Atletico Madrid (4-1). In 2020, it hosted the Champions League final between Bayern Munich and Paris Saint-German (1-0).

How to get to Estadio da Luz

The Estadio da Luz is located in the north of Lisbon, almost 8 kilometers north of Lisbon's city center. It is not far away from Lisbon's other major stadium, Estádio José Alvalade. The stadium is adjacent to the E1 (Av. General Norton de Matos) motorway. The exit toward Benfica is clearly visible from the motorway and signposted coming from the east.

If using public transport, Estádio da Luz can be reached by taking the blue metro line. The blue line can be boarded at several stations in Lisbon's city centre, such as Baixa-Chiado. Get off at station Colégio Militar / Luz which lies right next to the stadium.

Address: Av. General Norton de Matos, 1500-313 Lisboa

Eat, drink, and sleep near Estadio da Luz

There is little reason to head to the stadium too much in advance, as the area around it is not particularly suited for walking and it is therefore best to do so in Lisbon's lively city centre. If you find yourself at the stadium with some time to spare, then you can head to the large shopping centre Colombo right across the Av. General Norton de Matos. There you will find a decent selection of restaurants of various cuisines, a few coffee shops, some bars, and a cinema.

Hotels in the area offer typical chain hotels such as Ibis, Mercure, Novotel, and the Portuguese chain Sana Hotels. These properties are all well-known and have good reviews. They generally run from around €60 to €70 per night. The Lisbon Marriott and Corinthia Hotel are more expensive options but they're also much fancier.

I felt like a priest going to the Vatican, with great atmosphere and amazing supporters. Took my son and he loved it. From the food outside to the game itself was one of the best experiences of my life. Can't wait to do it again. Força Benfica!

! I went to the stadium a few weeks ago and it was one of the best experiences of my life. The atmosphere was amazing, the supporters were great, and the food outside was delicious. I can't wait to go back.

I was seated in the fourth row on one of the sides of the stadium. The atmosphere was electric with around 60000 fans inside. I loved watching the eagle fly around before the game started. The atmosphere was fantastic, and the game itself was amazing.

I went to watch Benfica play Vitoria Setubal a few weeks ago. The Metro stop is just outside the ground, so traveling from the city centre is very convenient. I bought my ticket just before the match for 27.5 Euros. I sat in the 4th row on one of the sides. The atmosphere was great with around 60000 fans inside. I loved the eagle flying around before the kick-off. The game was amazing, with an incredible atmosphere.

There was no tension at the stadium itself. It was simply awesome. Well worth a visit.

After the match a group of Benfica fans took us on a tour of the old parts of the city. They were very gracious and welcoming and we left with a very positive impression of them and the city.

Security was not threatening and the police were patient with the Celtic supporters in the Centre of town who were determined to have a great party. There was no tension.

Stadium itself was simply awesome. Well worth a visit.

I hope to return to Portugal one day and explore the northern part of the country, around Porto, the country's 2nd city. In my opinion, the country is rather underrated, especially as much more publicity is devoted to its somewhat higher-profile neighbour, Spain.

Benfica V. FC Arouca, Portuguese Primeira Liga. Saturday 5th October 2014. 6pm.

A number of emotions filled my head as I looked at Benfica's Old Estadio da Luz (Stadium of Light), a legendary ground and one of the largest stadiums in the world (with a record attendance of a staggering 135,000 in the 1980s!), demolished over a decade ago to make way for Benfica's Centenary and Euro 2004. I had fond memories of my previous visit to Lisbon in 1999 when, on a half-day Tour of the city, taxi driver and huge Benfica fan Jorge Máximo took me inside the Old Stadium to the very imposing press box with panoramic views across the pitch. I wondered if history would repeat itself and we would meet again?

And I must not forget to mention that the FIFA under-20 World Cup Final in 1991 was held at the old Stadium, featuring a very youthful Luis Figo and Rui Costa, among other youth prodigies of that era. Our Tour Guide told us Portugal won 4-2 on penalties against their Brazilian rivals to send the massive crowd into rapturous celebration - a match still fondly remembered in Portugal to this day.

The ?Casas Benfica? were able to parade around the pitch with their banners during half-time. These were supporter clubs from all over Portugal who were attending the match that day.

The final scoreline of 4-0 was quite harsh on the visiting team, but that's just football. What Benfica needed after their morale-sapping Champions League defeat midweek was some relief, and an attendance of just over 42000 gave them that. We were glad to know that there were no hiccups with the roof structure during the match, as earlier in the year a derby match against Sporting had to unfortunately be called off because parts of the stadium roof fell on the pitch.

The car park is well designed with a special slip road leading straight onto the Highway, and saved us the hassle of queuing up afterwards at the Metro. If any of you readers hope to travel around Lisbon with him in his taxi, I'm afraid it won't be possible as he informed us he recently retired from his occupation.

I hope to travel to Portugal one day and explore the northern part of the country, around Porto, the country's second city. I think the country is underrated, especially given its much more prominent neighbour, Spain.

They were all in full RoboCop body armor and we were fairly threatening without actually assaulting anyone. The ground was three-quarters full but there was not a great atmosphere - I think the home fans already considered the tie won following a good win at White Hart Lane. And Benfica are used to competing in the Champions League rather than the Europa League. We were kept in for about forty minutes after the game to allow home fans to disperse but the Metro then ran fast all the way back to the center of the city.

We went to this stadium with Spurs. Our seats were allocated high in the corner of one end. There were a few mobile bars / fast food vendors outside the ground, but not much else about it and the police were keen to get us into the ground. They were all in full Robo-Cop body armour and we looked fairly threatening without actually assaulting anyone.

The stadium was three-quarters full but there was not much of an atmosphere. I think the home fans were already considered to have won the match following a good win at White Hart Lane. And Benfica are used to competing in Europe's premier club competition, the Champions League, rather than the Europa League.

After the game, we were kept in for about 40 minutes so that home fans could disperse. The Metro then ran quickly all the way back to the center of the city.
