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.

Your accommodation in Lisbon

Here’s a taste of the quality hotels we use on this football adventure: Luzeiros Suites, Pestana CR7 Lisbon, or similar will be used for these trips. The hotels you’ll stay in for your departure will be shared with you two weeks before you go.


As this is a highly required game, Homefans opened an estimated date so you can secure your spot in advance by paying a 40% flexible deposit.

2024/25 Season dates now available. Book them before the price increases!

Dates don’t work out? You can change your deposit for any other trip of your choice.

Welcome in Lisbon

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 will greet you and show you around the city.

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!

Experience the Lisbon Derby

Match Day!

It's time to experience one of the biggest Portuguese derbies!

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.

Time to Say Goodbye

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!

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.

Can children / young adults join the tour?

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!

The Lisbon derby: Sporting Portugal v Benfica

I'm going to try keep this concise. Lisbon is a BEAUTIFUL city with a lovely charm and a relaxed vibe which was great to be part of. My local host/guide, Ricardo, was a brilliant host and person who guided us to multiple lovely places for my group to see and enjoy. My hotel (Lisbon City Hotel) was at a great location at Intendente which gets lively at night with an outdoor DJ/performer where drinks are flowing and it has many restaurants and shops nearby. Whilst the action on the pitch was disappointing in the Lisbon derby, I loved the atmosphere and being at a wonderful stadium of Sporting's, along with Benfica's for the stadium tour. I look forward to my next trip with Homefans.
