The Estádio do Dragão (Stadium of the Dragon) opened in 2003 with a match between FC Porto and FC Barcelona. The construction costs of the stadium were €98 million. The stadium was one of the 2004 UEFA European Football Championship venues. It is the home of FC Porto, one of the major sports clubs from Portugal. They won the European Champion Clubs’ Cup in 1987 for the first time in their history. FC Porto drew an average home attendance of 45,000 in that domestic league season. They became the first Portuguese world champions in football.
