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 Sporting fans. All before seeing the action unfold at the Jose Alvalade Stadium.
There will be passion. There will be flares. And you’ll love every second of it.
This weekend in Lisbon is dedicated to the people who love football culture. Which means great atmospheres, cheap and delicious food, good local beers, and endless fun!
Today, we'll welcome you and check you in to your hotel. To start the weekend in good shape, our host Pedro will take you to an incredible Portuguese Tasca (a traditional restaurant), with plenty of great food and drinks.
After that, we can extend the night and go to some of the best bars in town at Cais do Sodré. And if you're feeling brave, head to the riverfront nightclubs and party until the sun rises! You can count on us for any of the plans!
It's time to experience one of the biggest Portuguese derbies!
First, we will go to the other side and enjoy an exclusive stadium tour at SL Benfica - Sporting Lisbon rivals for today's match.
Here's you'll learn about the history of Estádio da Luz, see the pitch, dressing room, press area, museum, and even the famous Eagle "Victoria" that flies over the stadium before every match!
After that, our local host will start preparing you to support Sporting in the derby. Because it's time to get your scarves, take the subway, and go to the bars around the stadium for an amazing pre-match experience with Sporting fans.
Here you'll find yourself right in the middle of crazy ultras, flags, pyros and hundreds of the famous roulottes. In a place where Sporting fans get together to drink tonnes of beer as they wait for the team bus to turn up.
This feeling continues throughout the match - as the Sporting Ultras create one hell of an atmosphere at the Alvalade stadium.
After the game, you can take some time to chill and recover. Or join us for another group dinner and some drinks.
After an intense weekend in Lison, it's time to go our separate ways. We hope you'll leave Lisbon with unforgeable memories and plenty of stories to tell your friends. And look forward to seeing you again soon!
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.
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.
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)
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.
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.
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!
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.
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
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.
