Truly impressive! The invitation was made and promptly accepted. Nearly 20 thousand Benfiquistas were present at Estádio da Luz this Saturday morning, in what was the supporters' first contact with the 2018/19 version of Benfica.
The Official Site followed everything LIVE since 9:30 am, a record you can see or review here!
It seemed a matchday! A true Red Tide, in the surroundings of Estádio da Luz living moments of anxiety, emotion, and expectation. Of all ages, from several locations of the Country, as a family… the Benfica style! 20 thousand Benfiquistas, members, supporters... just one motto, just one thought: to see first-hand the 2018/19 of the Football team, in a season where the goal is set... Together, towards the Reconquest.
At the end, the players handed out soccer balls to Benfiquistas and there were many applause from the stands to the pitch and from the pitch to the stands. Synergy and empathy among all because that is what a Family is... and this is Benfica!
