CD Nacional Tickets
CD Nacional: Madeira's pride
CD Nacional has a very special place in football history. They are the noted home of Portugal's most famous football player, Cristiano Ronaldo. Though he only played two years there as a young teen, one's start can never be forgotten. You can buy or sell CD Nacional tickets all on the StubHub website, where you can also find information on all of their upcoming matches and the corresponding seating charts.
The Madeira Derby
It would be impossible to start into a description of CD Nacional without bringing up the famed Madeira Derby. The Madeira Derby comprises a rivalry between CD Nacional, Maritimo and Uniao. The three Funchal clubs were all founded within a couple years of each other one hundred years ago. Unsurprisingly, three teams stuck on an island and all in the island's biggest city were bound to bump heads. For much of that history. CD Nacional has failed to reign supreme, with Maritimo most frequently claiming the top spot. However in recent years, CD Nacional has begun to emerge supreme not only on the island but across Portugal and at times even across Europe. However, much of this rivalry goes beyond the pitch. CD Nacional and Maritimo represent different cultures and values. Nacional's fans, historically, have come from the wealthier strata, comprising traders and commercial workers. Maritimo's come from a more working class status. These differing backgrounds only worked to further the tension and increase the heat of the rivalry over the years. If you want to catch one of football's greatest ongoing rivalries, there is no better way than buying CD Nacional tickets off of StubHub for their next match.
Domestic and European football triumphs
Though in their earlier years Nacional may have lost out to Maritimo, in recent years they've made up lost ground and have found themselves rising to the highest stage of Portuguese football. For instance, Nacional claimed the top spot of the second division for the 2017-18 season. Their first such victory since the 1990s. They also made it to multiple semifinals of the national cup throughout the early 2010s. The 2000s and 2010s have seen Nacional make it to a string of European tournaments, where they've played the likes of Sevilla FC, Dinamo Minsk and Werder Bremen. They even managed to defeat Zenit St. Petersburg in the playoffs of one of their European runs. As well in the 2014-15 national cup, Nacional made it all the way to the semifinals. This is a team that is poised to make another breakout. CD Nacional tickets are available now to be purchased or sold via the StubHub website.
