BENFICA HISTORY

Sport Lisboa e Benfica, known to most of the world simply as Benfica, was founded in 1904. Based in Lisbon, they are the largest sports club by membership in Portugal, and the second largest in the world, with over 250,000 members.

They are one of three Portuguese clubs to have never been relegated from the Primeira Liga, along with Sporting CP and FC Porto who are their main rivals. The latin motto “E pluribus unum” and an eagle adorns the club crest, which gives them their nickname, As Águias. The club have worn red shirts and white shorts from the beginning – over a century ago.

Benfica play their home games at Estádio da Luz, the site of the 2014 and 2020 Champions League finals. The stadium replaced its predecessor of the same name which was their home from 1954-2002.

Benfica have won a record 37 Primeira Liga, 26 Taça de Portugal, and 7 Taça da Liga titles. They also won back-to-back European Cups in 1961-62. Their 84 total trophies make them the most decorated Portuguese club of all time. Their last Primeira triumph came in the 2018/19 season.

The Derby de Lisboa pits Benfica against Sporting, and is considered the biggest and most important rivalry in the country. O Clássico is between Benfica and FC Porto, with the two teams hailing from the two biggest cities in Portugal, and being the two most decorated clubs in the country.

Players such as Eusébio, Ángel Di Maria, João Felix, Luisão, Darwin Núñez, Raúl Jiménez and Bernardo Silva have taken the pitch for Benfica over the years. 

In addition to football, Benfica also field teams in futsal, roller hockey, basketball, handball, rugby, and billiards, among other sports. 

The easiest way to see a full schedule of what games are to come is to look at the Primeira Liga TV Schedule. You’ll usually find Benfica and rivals Porto and Sporting featured each week on GolTV.

As stated previously, beIN SPORTS carries Ligue 1 games. Oftentimes, beIN SPORTS is unavailable on cable or satellite providers. The best way to keep up is to use something like Fanatiz or fuboTV. For UEFA competitions like Champions League and Europa League, Paramount+ is your best bet.
