Travel to 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.
During your visit to the Derbi de Lisboa, you’ll see the best of the city before hitting the best pre-match spots with local 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.
