Portugal is the perfect destination for college men’s and women’s teams. Portugal is a more mature location, we would recommend Italy or Spain for those younger teams looking for sun, sand and soccer. We use Lisbon and Porto as bases to explore all Portugal has to offer, as these two cities offer the best local teams for your games as well as great history to explore. Portugal has the great combination of soccer, sightseeing, beaches and nightlife that most college teams are looking for.
Lisbon is the capital of and the largest city in Portugal, built on the coast of the Atlantic Ocean where the river Tagus intersects. Lisbon is a stunning mix of ancient sites and modern wonders. While in Lisbon make sure to visit the Sporting Soccer Club and Stadium Complex at Lisbon, home of the Sporting Clube de Portugal or Estádio da Luz, home of Sport Lisboa e Benfica. Also, in Bairro Alto, in the upper quarter of Lisbon, you can find lots of shopping and entertainment, as it is the heart of Lisbon’s youth and of the Portuguese capital’s nightlife.
Sights to see in Lisbon: Torre de Belem, Lisbon Cathedral, Estadio da Luz, São Roque Church, Rooftops of Alfama, Sporting Soccer Club and Stadium Complex, Santa Justa Elevator, St. George’s Castle, Campo Pequeno Bullring, Bairro Alto and much more!
Located along the Douro river estuary in northern Portugal, Porto is one of the oldest European centres. Its Latin name, Portus Cale, has been referred to as the origin for the name Portugal. Also, one of Portugal’s internationally famous exports, port wine, is named for Porto, since the metropolitan area, and in particular the adegas of Vila Nova de Gaia, were responsible for the production and export of the fortified wine. While in Porto, visit Estádio do Dragão, home of FC Porto (one of the Big Three).
Sights to see in Porto: Porto Cathedral, Estádio do Dragão, Avenida dos Aliados, Palacio da Bolsa, the remnants of the old city walls, the gardens of the Crystal Palace and much more!
