A few months away to turn 14 years old – was inaugurated on September 22, 2006 –, Benfica Campus is still a topic of conversation.
This evaluation was based on the quantity and quality of the footballers trained and raised at the clubs within the analysis period. The selection covers the players born in or after 1990, arrived at the club before the age of 17, who represented it during three seasons before turning 20 and completed their debut in professional football.
The goal was clear since the beginning: to find, train, develop and project talent. In December 2019, Benfica was also awarded with the prize of “Best Academy of the Year” in the 11th Globe Soccer Awards Event, in Dubai.
