Description

The old stadium was demolished in 2010 and replaced by a new Estádio da Luz. Was SL Benfica's home for almost 50 years before it got replaced in 2004 by a new stadium with the same name? The old stadium was demolished in 2010 and replaced by a new Estádio da Luz. Was SL Benfica's home for almost 50 years before that? Construction of the stadium began in July 1953 and was completed by the end of 1954. The stadium officially opened on the 1st of December 1954 with a match between Benfica and Porto (1-3).

At its inception, the stadium had a capacity of about 50,000 people. However, this was increased to 80,000 in 1960 with the construction of a third tier. The third tier was first only built over one long end, but was extended over the whole stadium in 1985. This brought the capacity to over 120,000 people making Estádio da Luz the largest stadium in Europe at that time.

The 1992 European Cup Final was a match between Werder Bremen and AS Monaco. The final was held at the Estádio da Luz, which was the only European cup final ever to be played there. Werder Bremen won the match 2-0, meaning they became Cup Winners? Cup champions.

This change made the stadium less intimate and allowed for a more balanced distribution of fans throughout the venue. The stadium was converted into an all-seater in 1998, reducing its capacity to 78,000 seats. This change made the stadium less intimate and allowed for a more even distribution of fans throughout the venue.

After Portugal got awarded the Euro 2004 championships in 1999, the need arose for a more modern stadium. Initial proposals for the renovation of the stadium were rejected and instead was chosen to build a new stadium, which meant demolishing the old one.

On the 22nd of March 2003, Benfica played its last match at the partly demolished stadium. After completing the season in Estádio Nacional, the club then moved into its new Estádio da Luz in the fall of 2003.
