The club that was born in a chemist's shop in Belém is today the owner of the largest stadium in the country. The new ground, built on land adjacent to the old stadium, contains leisure, entertainment and cultural areas. With its 65,000 covered seats and high-quality facilities, it has been classified as a five-star stadium by UEFA.

Let there be light
In fact, the Estádio da Luz ('Stadium of Light') was specially designed to include details to live up to its name, using natural light as much as possible. The new ground was built next to the old one and seats 65,000 spectators.

The final
In a year that marks the centenary of SL Benfica and the 50th anniversary of the previous Estádio da Luz, the new stadium has been chosen as the venue for the final of UEFA EURO 2004TM.

Official opening
Benfica marked the official opening of the new Estádio da Luz, with a friendly match in which Benfica beat the Uruguayan team Club Nacional de Football de Montevideo 2-1. Before the match, the 65,000-strong audience watched a multimedia show and a firework display.
