The S.L. Benfica roller hockey squad is a professional team based in Lisbon, Portugal. They play in Portuguese first division and are the oldest team in the world to play roller hockey. Benfica is the only Portuguese team to have won all international competitions.
Benfica's only European trophy up to the season of 2009–10 was a single CERS Cup won in the 1990–91 season but in the 2010–11 the club's European fate began to change. They made their way up to the 2010–11 CERS Cup Final Four, eventually winning the trophy for the second time (deafeating CP Vilanova in the final by 6–4, at their home ground). With this victory, Benfica had the chance to play the CERH Continental Cup against the CERH European League winner HC Liceo La Coruña. The opponent refused to play the cup's final and Benfica won it by 10–0 (disqualification), conquering their first Continental Cup.
On 2 June 2013, Benfica won its first CERH European League defeating FC Porto at Dragão Caixa by 6–5 (aet), in an all Portuguese final. That made them the fourth Portuguese team to lift the most important clubs European trophy. On 2 November 2013, Benfica won its second Continental Cup defeating CE Vendrell of Spain (5–3, 5–0), thus becoming the only Portuguese club to win the trophy twice. On 16 November 2013, Benfica won the FIRS Intercontinental Cup, defeating Sport Recife by 10–3 and winning the only missing trophy for the club and the second one for Portuguese roller hockey, after the 1992 Óquei de Barcelos win.
