Portugal’s most successful domestic club, Benfica is also one of Europe’s top clubs. It is the twenty second richest football club in the world in terms of revenue and is one of the most respected clubs in the world.


The foundation of SL Benfica was laid in 1904, when a group of former students met with the intention of founding a new football club which would be called “Sport Lisboa”. The meeting also included a young Cosme Damiao, who would go on to be the driving force behind Benfica and is credited as the club’s founder.

The new club got to a good start, but due to poor operating conditions, it lost eight players, who in 1907 chose to move to the then more prosperous club, Sporting Lisbon. This incident led to the rivalry between the two clubs which stands to this day.

Sport Lisboa e Benfica was officially born on 13th September 1908 when Sport Lisboa acquired the Grupo Sport Benfica. Red and white were chosen as the kit colors and "E pluribus unum"(Out of many, one) was adopted as the club’s motto.

Football Legacy:

When the Primeira Liga began in 1933, Benfica lost the first edition, but won the next three editions in a row. They won another three titles during the 1940’s along with four Taça de Portugal (Portugal’s national knockout competition). However the club rose as an international powerhouse during the 1950’s when they won their first Latin Cup (the precursor to the European Cup). By the end of the 1950’s the team had firmly consolidated its foundations and entered the 1960’s as one of the best teams in Europe.

The 1960’s were the golden era of Benfica football. Led by the legendary Eusébio, the club dominated the domestic scene, winning eight league titles in ten years. They also became the first team to stop Real Madrid’s European Cup juggernaut by winning two consecutive European Cups. The team reached three more European Cup finals but lost to Milan, Internazionale and Manchester United. The club also managed to win three Taca de Portugal trophies during this period. Overall they managed to win thirteen major trophies in ten years.

Following their golden years, the team somewhat faded out of the European scene, but was still a major force domestically, winning numerous league and cup titles. During the late eighties the club made a desperate effort to regain Europe’s top prize and heavy financial investments were made to aid the effort. The club managed to reach the final twice in 1988 and 1990 but lost both times.

In recent times, the club won a record thirty second title during the 2009-2010 season. Since that campaign, they have been a runner up in every season including the 2012-2013 season. Their last major European appearance was during the 2011-2012 campaign, when they were knocked out in the quarterfinals by eventual champions Chelsea.

In the current edition of the league, Benfica are going strongly and are placed at the top of the league. SL Benfica tickets will give you the opportunity to catch live action from the club’s games and give a chance to witness their campaign to win a record thirty third league title.
