ICC: all set to welcome Benfica

Football

The team is expected to arrive in America at 12 noon local time on Monday, 8:00 pm in mainland Portugal.

 

It is all set to welcome the National Champion. Benfica's squad arrives at San Jose at 12 noon this Monday, July 15 (8:00 pm in Mainland Portugal), and will train at Stanford University. The Official Site visited the venue and can attest that it is prepared to welcome the squad under Bruno Lage.

It was possible to verify that the stadium (Stanford Stadium), despite being closed, can host thousands of fans; next, we visited the athletics track with conditions that leave the most skeptical stunned. The trip continued with a view over baseball fields, field hockey, American football, water polo, and swimming pools. There is still a pavilion, but it was not possible to visit it.

The access to the field where Benfica will train happened with the presence of the International Champions Cup delegation. A pitch in great conditions and outdoors that will allude to the Benfica brand.

The Official Site also visited the team dressing room. Spacious, with individual lockers, recovery room... In other words, all the conditions so that nothing is missing in Benfica's preparation for the 2019/2020.
