The owner of the club had another Hattrick team in the past, but the serious assumption of the game started in 2009.

  • Sport NEC Benfica started it's carrer in the end of Portuguese Season 25. The 3rd finishing position on Season 26 was the prize for the basis work started at that time...

It was the beginning for a fantastic Season 27 where the team conquered 13 wins, ascending to the first place and the deserved promotion to the Division IX. That was the first Championship title for the NEC Benfica team. The 3 Top Scorers of the season where Sport NEC Benfica players: Mamede Santos got the first prize with 15 goals, followed by Matias Ligorne with 12 and Olivier Degreave, counting 9.

  • Division IX was a transition period and, incredibly or not, the team showed a fantastic consistency... the final results where the major proof: First place (Second consecutive title) and promotion, 14 wins, an amazing goal average of 111-3... and the 7 (!!!) first Top Scorers of the League - Mamede Santos (22), Jorge Carvão (14), Matias Ligorne (13), Daniel Gonçalves (12), Emílio Vale (9), Emídio Puim (8) and Hugo Gyldenfeldt (8). Bruno Torres was also in the Top 10 with 7 goals scored.
  • Season 29 represented a big challenge after two consecutive promotions. The team was breathing confidence and the number of fans was increasing day after day. NunoEspadinha always defended the supported growth of the club, so this was a season to get the feet well grounded. Some new players arrived and some others departed... Some young ones ascended to the main team, also. The finishing position was the expected one: a 3rd place, just 3 points behind the first classified team, and heads up for the next season.
  • A new title arrived in Season 30. Third promotion in 4 seasons... and the next challenge is called Division VII. Goal average ended up at 93-8 scored (and suffered) in 14 consecutive wins. Jouni Sundberg conquered the Season Top Scorer with 19 goals, followed by the other NEC Benfica striker (scoring 16): Wouter Cauwenbergh. The president decides to show this Hattrick Wiki page to the world as a gift for the new champions, in a press release written in english that marked a new communication method. Also important in this season is the official opening of the NEC Benfica Youth Academy.
  • Season 31 crowned Sport NEC Benfica as the VII.317 serie champions. The team achieved one more honourous trophee. It has been an amazing season and the striker Wouter Cauwenbergh also came away as the Best Scorer, with 13 goals scored. This walkthrough was an half surprise since the direct promotion was idealized just for the 2nd season on Division VII. After a 53-22 goals mark, 11 wins, 2 losses and 1 draw... the team looked ahead for the biggest challenge in it's career - Division VI!!! This season was also the one that saw some historic players promoted to the Hall of Fame: Luis Marvão, Amílcar Borrego and Matias Ligorne are now taking some other duties inside the club.
  • It's common sense that the major difficulties start on Division VI, and the team is inside a very difficult serie. The hope is to maintain itself there.. Update: It was true... the team faced a very difficult serie and finished in 7th place being relegated to Division VII once more. No worries... Olivier Degraeve was promoted to the Hall of Fame during this season.
  • Season 33: The team finished this season in a very good 3rd place, just one point behind the two leaders. New promotion for Division VI and some new players arriving... some others leaving, like Pedro Vidal Correia and Hugo Gyldenfeldt. The Youth Academy is already giving us some interesting players.

Club Colours

Actual Kits
First Kits
Special Kits

Sport NEC Benfica originally wore a green kit with gold trim as their home kit and a white kit with gold trim as their away kit, as most teams without supporter wear.

In July 2009 NunoEspadinha became supporter so a completly new world opened it's doors to the team. A very simple red and white kit became the first personalized one, being the away kit mainly white. Obviously, the influence from the historical portuguese club Sport Lisboa e Benfica is present on the team kits and will always be. The black socks are the remembrance of the first kit used by Benfica back in 1904, year of it's foundation.

Some time after, improved kits were presented to the team fans... Being NunoEspadinha a long time lover of all that involves game graphics, these new kits were a massive improvement to the basic initial ones. Of course that red and white dominated the Home kit design, while the black color present on the Away one is exactly the same as the SL Benfica wears at the 2009/2010 official Portuguese Season. The main sponsor on the back of the shirts is "Sagres", the portuguese beer that is also the favourite one of the team owner.

A very nice conversion of the team logo was made by Eminence and was added to the team kits as soon as it was finished. Honouring this great work NunoEspadinha designed a special kit, completly white, where the logo appears very clear. This kit is used by the team in some special events.

New versions of the kits are already prepared for the next season. A lot of Hattrick Benfica fans already saw them and the reactions were fantastic.

Club Emblem

Sport NEC Benfica
First emblem

Sport NEC Benfica first showed their club emblem to the world in Season 27.
The first emblem is dated from 03-09-2009 and was designed by Mister_CH. It was a simple design but already had most of the elements wanted by NunoEspadinha.

On the making was the official design, which was unveiled on 26 of the same September, 2009. The main colours were red, white and black to match the team kits.
The logo is composed, at the center, by the Benfica Centenarium eagle and lettering. The background transports us to the Sport Liboa e Benfica cathedral, known as Estádio da Luz (Stadium of Light). The logo was designed by ArYus, an esteemed logomaker from Portugal and founder of the OgoLLogO Federation. NunoEspadinha requested that the artist design a modern emblem which portrayed an image related to Benfica, but containing NEC Benfica club name as well as keeping the club colours.

The emblem will suffer a small change in a near future, where the date of the club foundation will be added.


NEC Benfica Stadium

Sport NEC Benfica play their home games at the NEC Benfica Stadium. When first built, the stadium had a capacity of 12.000.

During the Season 28, expansion work boosted the capacity to 18.555. These works finished on 20-10-2009.

The stadium was made up of:

The first sold out attendance was against FC Dragao on 20-03-2010 (Season 29). Sport NEC Benfica won 4-2 in a League match on that occasion. The stadium has sold out once more since that game, on 29-05-2010 - already Season 30. It was again a League match, this time against AC Expert, and the final result was a victory by 3-1. After the 3rd sold out attendance, against F.C. Barreiro, the team owner decided that that was the right time to make some rebuilding again. Works started at 15-06-2010. The stadium acomodate now 30.000 souls...

The Sport NEC Benfica Youth Academy is a project for the future and opened it's doors on 30-06-2010. The team owner and club responsables hope that it can be the birth place for some important key players that might enter the main senior team.
Anyway, until this day, the club invested 20.000€ every week in it's Junior Team... That bet in the young players already gave some good results in the past, being one of them the goalkeeper Pedro Vidal Correia, which conquered a place in the main team since February 2010.

Silvestre Carocha was the first member of the Junior Team to get a full time contract, on 27-03-2009.

The Youth Academy is called NEC Benfica Juniors and they play the home matches at the Academia NEC Benfica, with a capacity of 300 seats.
