Complicated goings on at Portuguese top flight club Belenenses.
Belenenses (or ?) to play at National Stadium 2018/19
In summary, the SAD have moved to team to the National Stadium for next season, but the officials at the football club have not accepted the move and have created a new Belenenses team to play in the third level of the Lisbon District league at the traditional ground - Estádio do Restelo . They are also intending to take legal action against the SAD to prevent them using the Belenenses name. Full details are available on various Portuguese websites.
The Belenenses ultras have pledged support to the newly formed team at Restelo - https://www.abola.pt/...icias/Ver/739604/466
The national stadium is, of course, where Celtic won the Euopean cup in 1967. The Restelo has one of the classic views from a ground - out across the Tagus to the Cristo Rei statue. Both are well worth a visit.
