History and description

The Estádio da Luz 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 stadium was inaugurated on 24th of March 2004 with a Benfica v Porto game.

The stadium has a capacity of 50,000 and is the largest in Portugal. On 25 October 2003, the new stadium opened with a match between Benfica and Club Nacional (2-1). The stadium has a capacity of 50,000 and is the largest in Portugal.

The three group matches at the Euro 2004 Championships were Portugal versus England (2-2), Greece versus Portugal (1-0), and the quarter-final between Portugal and England.

In 2014, the stadium hosted the Champions League final between Real Madrid and Atletico Madrid (4-1). In 2020, it will again host the Champions League final when it is moved from Ataturk Olympic Stadium due to the Covid-19 pandemic. Bayern Munich beat Paris Saint-German 1-0 to win the match.

How to get to Estadio da Luz

The Estadio da Luz is located in the north of Lisbon near the city center and far from José Alvalade Stadium. The stadium is adjacent to the E1 motorway. The exit leads you toward Benfica, which is clearly visible from the motorway and signposted coming from the east.

If using public transport, the Estádio da Luz can be reached with the blue metro line. The blue line can be boarded at several stations in Lisbon's city center, such as at 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

The Estádio de Luz is surrounded by motorways and apartment blocks and the area is not particularly suited for walking around. There is, therefore, little reason to head to the stadium too much in advance and eating and drinking is best done in Lisbon's lively city centre. If you find yourself having some free time at the stadium, then you can head to the large shopping center Colombo  right across the Av. General Norton de Matos, where you can find a decent selection of restaurants of various cuisines, a few coffee shops, some bars, and a cinema.

Some local hotels in the area include typical chain hotels such as Ibis, Mercure, Novotel, and Portuguese chain SANA Hotels. These all have good reviews and are reasonably priced around ?60.00 to ?70.00 per night. The Lisbon Marriott and Corinthia Hotel are more expensive alternatives.

I was there last year during the derby between Benfica and Sporting and it was amazing, the atmosphere and the fans were incredible. The game was great too - very intense.

The stadium was amazing last year during the Benfica-Sporting derby. The atmosphere was incredible and the fans were amazing, as were the players. The game was also very exciting.

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 sat in the fourth 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 atmoisphere was amazing, and the game was great.

Vitoria Setubal were the better side, but Benfica deservedly won 3-1. I went to watch Benfica play Vitoria Setubal a few weeks ago. The Metro stop is just outside the ground so the journey from the city centre is very convenient. I bought my ticket just before the match for 27 Euros. I sat in 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 atmosphere was amazing and great game. Vitoria Setubal were the better side, but Benfica deservedly won 3-1.

There was no apparent tension. The stadium itself was simply awesome. Well worth a visit.

After the match, a group of Benfica fans took us around 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 a threat and 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 second city. In my opinion, the country is rather underrated, especially as much more publicity is devoted to its somewhat higher-profile neighbor, Spain.

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

I had many mixed emotions about visiting the Old Stadium of Light again after it was demolished over a decade ago to make way for Benfica's Centenary and Euro 2004. On one hand, I had fond memories of my previous visit when a very kind taxi driver and huge Benfica fan by the name of Jorge Máximo took me inside the stadium to the imposing press box with panoramic views across the pitch. I wondered if history would repeat itself and we would meet again. On the other hand, I was also saddened by the fact that this legendary ground had been destroyed so soon after playing such an important role in Portuguese football history.

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.

Half-time also allowed the Casas Benfica to parade around the pitch with their banners. These were Benfica supporter clubs from all over Portugal who were in attendance that day.

The 4-0 Final scoreline was rather harshly on the visitors, but that's just football - what Benfica needed after their morale-sapping Champions League defeat midweek against Bayer Leverkusen. An attendance of just shy of 42000 flashed up on the screen - quite impressive considering the relative non-importance of the game! We were also glad to know that there weren't any hiccups with the roof structure during the match, as earlier in the year a derby match against Sporting had to unfortunately be called off as parts of the stadium roof fell on the pitch.

The car park is excellently designed with a special slip road that leads 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 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.

The Robo-Cops were all fully armoured and as such, we are 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 centre of the city.

We went to the game with Spurs, who had seats allocated in the corner of one end. There was 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 armor and we looked fairly threatening without actually assaulting anyone.

There was not a great atmosphere in the stadium as the home fans were already considered the winners following their good win against White Hart Lane. And Benfica are used to competing in Europe's top club competition, the Champions League, rather than Europa League.

We were kept in for about forty minutes after the game to allow home fans to disperse. However, the Metro then ran fast all the way back to the center of the city.
