Futbol In Lisbon

Hi Everyone,

I'll be in Lisbon from May 23rd to May 25 and I was wondering if anyone know of a futbol game around that time. I would really love to go to a game.

Many thanks.

The domestic football season will have ended by then - it is finishing earlier than usual because of the World Cup. Players from all European Leagues will be on their way to join their various national teams in preparation.

Portugal's national team is playing a friendly match against Cape Verde Islands on 24th May but the venue has yet to be announced. It may well be in Lisbon.

Thank you for the information. I hope it will be in Lisbon. Do you happen to have any information about friendly matches taking place in Madrid around the same time (end of May begining of June).

No I don't but I can recommend this excellent English language website on all aspects of Spanish football

http://www.soccer-spain.com/

I suspect however that most teams will be on their way to South Africa around the end of May for final preparations.

I need to correct my earlier post!

I overlooked the fact that the Divisions II and III of the national league will be in their playoff stage on May 23.

Who is playing whom when and where won't be known until the beginning of April for Division III and the beginning of May for Division II.

These playoffs decide certain issues of promotion and relegation and are bound to be keenly contested.
