Sporting CP – Estádio José Alvalade

Normally I should could have visited the Estádio José Alvalade on a matchday but the Portuguese FA decided to schedule it on Friday, making it impossible for me to watch it. Anyway, I got the chance to visit the ground with a stadium tour on Sunday. The ground was opened in 2003 and built for the 2004 European Championship where it hosted 5 games. In 2005 the Uefa also used this stadium for the Uefa Cup final between Sporting Lisbon and CSKA Moscow (1-3). During the stadium tour we were shown a model of the old ground, which must have been very beautiful too.
