COVID-19 Travel Requirements

Travel looks a bit different at the moment, given the advice is ever-changing and will vary depending on where you live Homefans is not publishing specific information however for entry to Portugal we are linking here to the Portuguese Tourist Board where you will find the latest advice.

For entry to the stadium you will need to prove you are double vaccinated using an EU approved COVID pass.

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.

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!

Tour's Location

Created with Sketch. Lisbon


Will the stadiums be open in 2021/22? At what capacity?

Homefans believe that stadiums will be open to fans, however we cannot at this stage confirm what the capacity will be.  However our flexible booking policies mean that if the stadium will only accept 50% fans and you decide you only want to travel with 100% attendance you can swap to another venue or another date.

Will I need to prove I am vaccinated? Or show a negative test?

This will vary destination to destination and based on your nationality and age. Therefore Homefans are not able to advise on this.  Please check the foreign ministry of your destination and home country and the stadium requirements.  Again, if you find the requirements too much you can defer to later in the season/year when they relax further.

COVID-19 hasn’t gone away- should I still book?

We believe so, we all need something to look forward to.  But we understand that people may be apprehensive which is why we have created a flexible cancellation policy which means in the event that the event does not happen the amount paid simply becomes Homefans credit. 


You can transfer this to a later date (with no time limit), transfer to another tour, or even give it to a friend. This flexibility also applies if you decide to cancel for any reason (as long as you give us 45 days notice)

Do I have to pay the full amount when I book?

No, you can secure your place with a deposit of just 30%, then pay the balance at least 4 weeks before your trip date depending on your destination.

Where in the stadiums 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 work tirelessly to make sure you get the best seats. We always aim for the long side of the home supporters section.

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!

Can children / young adults join the tour?

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

Can you cater to dietary needs or requirements?

Our local hosts will do everything they can to cater to travellers’ needs. It’s a good idea to share your requirements at the time of booking so that our host is able to make the required preparations

Will I have to share a room?

In order to keep the costs low we always offer prices based on 2 sharing. If you make a booking for an odd number of people you or another member of your party may be paired with another traveller of the same sex. If you wish you may pay a supplement for a guaranteed single room. Simply make your booking as normal and get in touch with us to arrange this.
