Overview

Join us in Lisbon and experience a passionate derby in one of Europe’s finest cities.

Lisbon is home to stunning views, wonderful city streets, and an infinite number of charming bars and restaurants. So far, so good. But it gets even better for football fans.

Because Portugal’s capital city also has an unmistakable passion for the game.  With two massive clubs and one hell of a derby. Benfica are the biggest club in town – with over five million fans across Portugal and an honours list other clubs can only dream of.

But although the men from Estadio da Luz have the most fans – they certainly don’t have everything their own way. And just a mile across town, you have Sporting Lisbon.

A massive club in their own right, who are famous for their fiery ultras and for giving us players like Luis Figo and Cristiano Ronaldo. Lisbon’s passion for football is endless. And over 100 years of bad blood between its clubs fuels debate in newspapers, bars, and stadiums.

On your visit to the Derbi de Lisboa, you’ll see the best of the city before hitting the best pre-match spots with Benfica fans. All before seeing the action unfold at the Estadio du Sport.

There will be passion. There will be flares. And you’ll love every second of it.

Which means great atmosphere, cheap and delicious food, beers & beers, and endless fun!

Today, we will welcome you and check you in the selected accommodation in Lisbon. To start the weekend in a good shape, our local host Pedro will take you to an incredible Portuguese Tasca, which means a very traditional restaurant, with plenty of good food and drinks.

Match Day!

To start the day, we will take you to some of the best Portuguese bakery places, where they to do the famous pastéis de Nata. We will walk through the main sites in the city center and get to know more about Lisbon!

Now it is time to think about SL Benfica. Red and White. The “Incarnated” ones. Some hours before the match, we will head to a restaurant close to Estádio da Luz, home of Benfica. With a set menu, let’s start the night eating some great and cheap seafood, while drinking some nice local beers!

Now the pre-match. We will guide to the famous roulottes, a place where the fans get together to drink tons of beers and wait for the bus team to come up. Flags, scarfs and red smoke are all over the place. Before the bus arrives, they make a huge line to salute their heroes. What an experience!

The Stadium is impressive and it was built to provide Benfica with a new and modern home, and to serve as the playing venue for the Euro 2004 final. And of course, there is the eagle, a symbol of the club, who flies from the stands and lands in the club’s emblem in the middle of the pitch. One moment to never forget!

You have tickets in the best location of the stadium, so we will make sure you get in on time to use your exclusive discount at the SL Benfica Store, grab some food and drinks and get ready for the match!

After that, you can either chill or join us for a nice dinner!

FAQs

What does a trip include?

A trip on the Homefans marketplace is a carefully hand-picked experience curated by Homefans and the local hosts in the destination to offer a unique sports experience through local eyes.

It usually includes the following:

  • Match Ticket
  • Local Host
  • Pre-Match Experience with local fans
  • Pre-arranged activities

In some cases more activities will be added or some will be omitted (and mentioned in the inclusions)

Where in the stadium will we be sitting?

If we know where you will be sitting, we always mention this is in the inclusions section.

Unfortunately, we are not always able to tell you that at the time of booking. However, our destination managers and local hosts work tirelessly to make sure you get the best seats.

We always aim for the long side of the home supporters section.

Can I upgrade my seat location?

We can always upgrade the seat location based on availability, at an extra cost. We do recommend that the group  stays together in the same area to get the most out of this experience, but if you would like to enquire about an upgrade, feel free to get in touch.

How many people will be on the tour?

The maximum number of people the host will allow is stated above.

However,  this number may not always be met and it may even be possible that your party is on the tour on your own.

Higher numbers make for a more sociable experience, lower numbers make for more personalised attention from your host. Look at it as a win/win!

How do you plan and execute your trips seamlessly?

The trips and activities on the Homefans marketplace are designed and executed by fully-vetted locals, and supervised and monitored by Homefans.

All bookings made on Homefans are backed by our Buyer Guarantee so you have a peace on mind when booking.

With more than 10,000+ customers , Homefans is one of the biggest specialised sports marketplaces in the world.

Homefans is for everyone!

If we can accept children, there will be an option to do so in the booking flow. However, for some trips, our local hosts take the decision to open this up to adults only, based on the content of the tour. If you are looking to travel with under 18’s, please feel free to contact us and we can discuss your options.

Will I have to share a room?

In order to keep competitive prices,  the trips on the Homefans marketplace always offer prices based on 2 people sharing.

If you wish to stay on your own in a single room, you may pay a supplement for a guaranteed single room. This can be found on the extras section at checkout and you can add it to the booking. You can also get in touch with us to arrange this.

Can I extend my stay / upgrade my hotel?

Yes, you can extend your stay by clicking on the EXTRAS section at checkout, choosing the number of extra nights you wish to extend your stay.

For a hotel upgrade, please get in touch with Homefans and we will assist you in this matter.

Can I cancel my trip if I cannot travel?

If you foresee that you cannot longer attend this trip, we appreciate if you let us know with time in advance.

According to our Terms & Conditions , if you tell us 45 days before the trip starts, we can keep your deposit and transfer it to another future trip or use it as credit.  The deposit payment is non-refundable and non-transferrable.

Why are there local hosts on the trips?

Homefans was created to address a pain point we experienced quite often. You travel abroad to watch a sporting event, yet once you arrive, you still feel like an outsider, with a lack of knowledge around the destination and the event.

The local hosts on the Homefans marketplace address this issue by becoming the local link to your trip. They enhance the experience completely, and create that necessary human connection – and will surely become friends in the future!
