Non Portuguese Benfica Fans

Postby BenfiquistaJon » Sun Jul 24, 2011 6:45 pm

Guys

Just wanted to know how many of us on here are non portuguese Benfica fans (myself I am English born and bred but fell in love with the club a few years back and havent looked back since, I watch every game via the internet and cant get enough of SLB)

I see some of you are from the states but I suspect you may be portuguese?

Just interested to know????

I'm Scottish, from Glasgow.

Locally I'm a Partick Thistle fan but as a regular visitor to Portugal and then living there for a year, I started following Benfica some years ago. I get to a few games but also watch all games on the internet.

I now consider myself to be a diehard and this site has helped me follow the team even more.

I was born in America, but both my parents were born in Portugal so that makes me half Chop lol. I honestly can't imagine supporting another Football Club 110% besides my SL Benfica. Screw the Barcelonas, Manchester Uniteds, and Inter Milans, meu clube é Sport Lisboa e Benfica!!! :slbscarf :ok

Pretty much the same as me then Danny, I went over to the Algarve several years ago and I became hooked on how big and beautiful a club Benfica was just by talking to the locals etc.

I have been back several times and I love those nights when I can sit in a bar/hotel watching the game with some of the staff and locals

Some of my favourite Thistle games have been against Falkirk over the years. The old ground was a great place to watch football, just a couple of feet from the pitch.

Born and raised in US of A... Played football (soccer to us, lol) many years as a youngster, but followed only the World cup, the CL finals, and the big classicos (AC-Inter, Real-Barcelona, etc.). Caught the Benfica bug when i moved to Newark a few yrs back and started to teach myself Portuguese by reading the local sports rag, which is run by a Benfiquista! Now im hopelessly "vermelho ate morte"!
