Campo da Feiteira was a football dirt field in Lisbon, Portugal. It started as field for Grupo Sport de Benfica to organize Sports Festivals. On 26 May 1907, Grupo Sport de Benfica officially taken over of Quinta da Feiteira, next to Estrada de Benfica, having from now on, a 120 meters per 79 metres field, for 20$ a semester. On 14 July 1907 it celebrated here, the first anniversary of Grupo Sport de Benfica.

Grupo Sport Lisboa (GSL) didn't have a field in his originating area (Belém) but since some of its members were also members of GSB, they knew about Campo da Feiteira, and despite their quality, it wasn't used for football. So on 24 November 1907, Grupo Sport Lisboa played for the first time in Campo da Feiteira, even thought as neutral field, counting to the Lisbon Football Championship, Grupo Sport Lisboa beat Internacional (CIF).

In March 1908, Grupo Sport Benfica changes its name to Sport Clube de Benfica. On 13 September 1908, after absorbing its members and the playing field of Grupo Sport Benfica, Grupo Sport Lisboa adds Benfica to its name, becoming then Sport Lisboa e Benfica (SLB) and playing in Campo da Quinta da Feiteira.

Sport Lisboa e Benfica left after excessive rent, 400$ for semester. They moved to Campo de Sete Rios.

Campo da Feiteira was converted into houses.[1]
