Happy birthday, Cathedral!
Inaugurated on October 25, 2003, the Estádio da Luz celebrates another anniversary this Monday. It's been 18 years of existence, of much emotion, histories and stories, victories, conquests, joys and sometimes even tears... it is really like that when it is from the soul, with heart, commitment and passion, because only we feel that way! The home of all Benfiquistas, a temple, a magical place, our Cathedral is to be congratulated. Many more to come!
