Big stadium
The dream of the Viscount of Alvalade, when he said: "This will be a club as big as Europe's greatest..." has finally come true. So, for a great club, a great stadium. Located in the city next to the old stadium, the new ground is part of a much larger complex, including sports facilities, residential blocks, shops and services.

Five-star classification
The quality of the stadium has already been recognised with the five-star classification that UEFA awards to high-quality stadiums. UEFA has also chosen this ground for the UEFA Cup final in 2005.

Major concerts
Just like in the old Estádio José Alvalade, Sporting also plans to use the new ground for major concerts. The owners of the stadium studied the acoustics of the stadium very carefully in order to be able to attract top music stars and maintain their reputation for top-quality concerts.

Manchester United opener
The stadium's first football game was on 6 August, when Sporting played a friendly match against Manchester United FC. The official opening, attended by 52,000 fans, also included a concert and multimedia show.
