As part of the "37 on tour", the trophy alluding to the conquest of the National Championship was present, this Sunday, at the Casas do Benfica in Hartford and Danbury, on the east coast of the United States of America.
The red delegation, led by the vice-presidents Domingos Almeida Lima and Alcino António, had also the presence of Jorge Jacinto, director of Casas do Benfica.
The first space of the Club to be visited was Hartford, in the state of Connecticut. As it happened in California, here too the Benfiquistas were heard loud and clear at the arrival of the board members and the Reconquest Cup.
From Hartford, the trophy traveled a few more kilometers to Danbury. It is once again the center of attention and the target of photographs and videos by the Portuguese community living on the east coast.
