Fantastic Football Trip to Portugal!

21 May 2024

Nearly 50 of our students enjoyed an unforgettable football-themed trip to Lisbon, Portugal, earlier this month, immersing themselves in the ‘beautiful game’ and living their lives as both professionals and fans.

Using the club’s state-of-the-art facilities, pupils received training from professional coaches of Primeira Liga side, S.L. Benfica; attended an S.L Benfica first-team match; enjoyed a behind-the-scenes tour of the club’s 64,000-capacity stadium; and played matches against Portuguese opposition.

Students also had the opportunity to explore the beautiful city of Lisbon, play beach football in the sunshine, and much more, making for a spectacular trip!

All pupils represented the school in a magnificent manner and were a credit to themselves and Penryn College.
