Overview

Like most European cities, Lisbon has a fine selection of Football Clubs across a number of different leagues. Without promoting one famous club over any other, a couple of names stand out, one of these is Sporting Clube de Portugal which is present in the José de Alvade’s stadium.

Since its formation in 1906, Sporting has always played at a stadium on the same site. The new football ground opened in August 2003, in preparation for the upcoming Euro 2004 competition, and has a capacity over 52,000 spectators.

Given the name “Alvalade” in recognition of founder and first member of Sporting Clube de PortugalJosé Alvalade, the stadium is now the home ground of his beloved team.

Sporting belongs to the top three Portuguese football clubs, the “big three”, and if given the opportunity football fans should definitely watch a match between the other two top teams: Benfica and Porto.

Apart from Football, Estádio de Alvalade is used regularly for mass music concerts, having seen the likes of Pink Floyd, Guns N’ Roses, Phil Collins, Genesis and many other famous names entertaining large and appreciative audiences. This has helped propel Portugal’s Capital on to the world stage, in terms of major music tours and festivals.
