Designed by Miguel Jacobetty Rosa in 1939, the National Stadium was inaugurated on the 10th of June 1944 by António de Oliveira Salazar.
Since then, the stadium, that has today a capacity for approximately 37.500 spectators, has been the stage of numerous sporting events, musical shows and various types of events.
In 1967, the stadium received the Champions Cup Final, which came to be won by Celtic FC's Lisbon Lions to Inter Milan (2-1). It is usually the stage of the Taça de Portugal (Portuguese Cup) final, considered the "queen event" of Portuguese football.
