Long-time Sportinguistas take centre stage in a club event

Sporting Clube de Portugal have a commitment to honouring long-time season ticket holders, and the most recent homage was paid at the Estádio José Alvalade. Around 200 members who have reached the 50-year milestone, plus more than a thousand with 25 years of consecutive membership, were recognised.

Each of them was first welcomed at Praça Centenário, where they could pick up a card and a personalised scarf. The ceremony itself, which took place in the VIP Box, was attended by club President Frederico Varandas.

Here, the members were presented with their respective commemorative badges, with several familiar faces in charge of making the moment even more special. Among them were present day idols such as Bernardo Paçó (futsal), Patrícia Mamona (athletics), Daniela Loureiro (volleyball) and Débora Queiroz (futsal), and legends like athletes Armando Aldegalega and Francis Obikwelu.

In addition to the ceremony, Sporting CP opened the stadium to all honorees and their companions, who were able to visit the Sporting CP Museum and the pitch, plus the first team dressing room.
