    Would make (vague) sense if Pedro has contacts at Benfica.

    Think that's an international week so could be true.

    You absolutely do if the demand is there.

    Should be going over to Canada and the US as often as possible.

    Surely most of the Benfica first team will be away playing for their respective countries?

    Benfica also have a massive fan base abroad, they would get a decent turnout from their support.

    Don't the Taigs regularly use the rule that you are allowed to postpone one regular season game to play a friendly?

    The stadium that's mentioned has a capacity of 24,000. I'm sure between ourselves and Benfica we'd be able to fill that, or at least get close to selling it out.

    It is a bit of a bizarre time to play such a game right enough.

    We don't. Charleston and Ottawa were small crowds.

    Someone must believe Benfica in Toronto will attract a decent attendance if they're willing to pay for both teams.

    nit picking here but bmo field in Toronto is far superior than Hamilton,great venue for soccer (real fitba ).
